IAT4SIS workshop will provide a space for the discussion on Artificial Intelligence driven concepts and recent developments on Agent-based techniques dealing with interoperability issues in socially interconnected systems. These issues mainly refer to complementary perspectives on interaction, coordination, negotiation, regulation and trust.

A wide variety of electronic business scenarios and systems, including enterprises networking, as well as agent-based approaches to this subject, have been proposed in recent years. The primary goal of this workshop is to bring together the most recent and innovative scientific research from a diversity of fields as Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence and Distributed Systems that focus on modelling, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of computational agents for interconnected systems, namely in e-business operations.

In the context of IAT4SIS workshop, we want to present and discuss promising new work towards the development of advanced methodologies and tools related to agents and multi-agent systems that:

  • support the interaction and collaboration between heterogeneous business agent entities (providing advanced services like negotiation, argumentation, e- contracting, ontology facilities, etc)
  • support business process management, through on-line learning and cross organisations adaptation
  • promote the security of social interconnected applications, through regulation and normative  procedures and trust-based measures  
  • analyze and support, through electronic tools, (enterprises or social) web-based networking
The workshop includes sessions for presentation of peer-reviewed papers, and (panel) discussions

Topics of Interest

  • Formal models of agent based systems in e-business
  • Auctions and negotiation technology
  • Argumentation for Negotiation
  • Contract theory for e-business
  • Trust and reputation computational models
  • Norms in e-business
  • Self regulation systems
  • Recommender systems
  • Adaptation and learning in e-business
  • Digital business ecosystems
  • Future Internet Enterprise Systems
  • Agent-based business processes
  • Adaptive business processes
  • Virtual Organisations
