International Workshop on Coordination, Organizations, Institutions, Norms and Ethics for Governance of Multi-Agent Systems (COINE)


Co-located with the 2023 International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems (AAMAS), the International Workshop on Coordination, Organizations, Institutions, Norms and Ethics for Governance of Multi-Agent Systems (COINE) seeks to bring together researchers in autonomous agents and multi-agent systems working on the scientific and technological aspects of social coordination, organizational theory, normative MAS, artificial or electronic institutions, norm-aware and ethical agents.

We invite submissions that address any of the following aspects:

  • mathematical, logical, computational, philosophical and pragmatic issues related to COINE;
  • modelling, animation and simulation techniques for open MAS;
  • tools, prototypes and working systems;
  • experimental investigation of the effectiveness of COINE technologies;
  • challenging or innovative ideas relevant to the field;
  • methodologies for the development of trustworthy AI; and
  • trustworthy AI education within the scope of MAS.

The workshop complements the main AAMAS program by allowing a more relaxed and in-depth discussion of MAS from a social perspective and has proven to be an event that encourages debate, and fosters collaboration among researchers in these topics.

A specific emphasis of this year’s iteration of COINE lies on the response to growing interest in the concept of norms applied to social and human-centric AI, so we will also aim to establish better mutual awareness between COINE and that community by making explicit references in our scope for research in development methodologies and education of trustworthy AI.

To leverage a broader understanding on how COINE-related themes are employed in these research disciplines, we will invite established researchers from the respective fields in order to highlight their perspectives on and adoption of COINE theory and technologies. Building on those insights, we will use this workshop to provide a platform to discuss the potentially varying viewpoints and facilitate the exploration of synergies as well as collaborative opportunities across community boundaries.
