The Fifth Workshop on Coordination, Organizations, Institutions, and Norms in Agent Systems


The workshop aims at bringing together the following topics: Coordination, Organization, Institutions and Norms. These four main topics have become an established area of agent research and a significant number of papers on these topics have been appearing in AAMAS and other agent conferences and workshops. The COIN workshops are thus designed to consolidate the subject by providing focus events that reach researchers from different communities working in related topics. They aim at facilitating more systematic discussion of themes that have been treated from different perspectives.

The COIN workshop is a continuation the workshop with the same name at AAMAS'07, AAMAS'06, and of the ANIREM and OOOP workshops held in AAMAS'05. A twin event of COIN has been collocated with ECAI'06 in Trento and with MALLOW'007 in Durham.

COIN@AAMAS 2008 is an international workshop of the COIN series
