Submission Instructions

Papers must be submitted in PDF via EasyChair. Papers must follow the LNCS format, and are limited to 15 pages (including references). The authors may submit an appendix with additional results.

CoopMAS is considered a nonarchival venue and there are no published proceedings,  though informal proceedings will be distributed to all workshop participants. This means that publishing a paper in CoopMAS should not prevent one from submitting  it to a conference or a journal at the same or later time. The requirement to use  the LNCS format is imposed to ensure uniformity.

Aims and Focus

The workshop is intended to focus on topics in cooperation in multiagent systems, cooperative game theory, cooperative solution concepts, coalition formation, and applications. We encourage submission of papers describing original work, as well as accepted AAMAS short papers, and work recently published in conferences other than AAMAS. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Cooperative game theory
  • Coalition formation
  • Games on networks
  • Game theoretic centrality
  • Representation issues
  • Negotiation
  • Market and economics based cooperation
  • Behavioral models for cooperative games
  • Applications of cooperative solution concepts
  • Computational Issues in Cooperative Games

The workshop should be of interest to researchers who study the mathematical and algorithmic properties of cooperative games; researchers interested in promoting cooperation in multiagent systems, designing and implementing collaborating agents and mechanisms that incentivize cooperation; and researchers studying the underlying connections between cooperative game theory and other topics in game theory and computer science. We also welcome participants who are interested in applications of cooperative game theory (for example, trading agents, recommender systems, and energy and water management). In particular, we encourage submissions on empirical and experimental study of applying solution concepts from cooperative game theory to real world problems.
