http://www-sop.inria.fr/members/Serena.Villata/climaXV.html

Affiliated with ECAI 2014

-------------------------------------------------------------------
INTRODUCTION
-------------------------------------------------------------------
 
A growing  number of  computer systems are  based on  software agents,
which act on behalf of  humans. These agents are becoming increasingly
responsible for complex tasks delegated to them, interacting with each
other in sophisticated ways so  as to forge agreements in the interest
of human users.  The CLIMA XV Special Session  on Logics for Agreement
Technologies  aims at  expanding the  state-of-the-art  on logic-based
approaches and technologies to  enable different aspects of many-party
agreements and to support the lifecycle of such systems.
 
We invite submissions on logic-based approaches, computational models,
methodologies  and  frameworks  for  software agents  and  multi-agent
systems, addressing (but not limited to) the following topics:
 
* Negotiation
* Formal argumentation
* Software agent organisations
* Electronic institutions
* Trust and reputation
* Norms and normative systems
* Social computing
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------
SUBMISSION
-------------------------------------------------------------------
 
We  welcome and  encourage the  submission of  high  quality, original
papers, which have not been accepted for publication nor are currently
under review for another journal or conference.
 
Papers  are  submitted  to   the  special  session  by  following  the
submission instructions for CLIMA:

The  special session on  Logics for  Agreement Technologies  is chosen
