1st Call for Papers
ALA 2011: Adaptive and Learning Agents Workshop at AAMAS 2011
The ALA workshop has a long and successful history and is now in its
11th edition. The workshop is a merger of European ALAMAS and the
American ALAg series which is usually held at AAMAS. Details may be
found on the workshop web site:
* Submission Deadline: February 2, 2011
* Notification of acceptance: February 27, 2011
* Camera-ready copies: March 10, 2011
* Workshop: May 2 or 3, 2011
Adaptive and Learning Agents, particularly those in a multi-agent setting
are becoming more and more prominent as the sheer size and complexity of
many real world systems grows. How to adaptively control, coordinate and
optimize such systems is an emerging multi-disciplinary research area at
the intersection of Computer Science, Control theory, Economics, and
Biology. The ALA workshop will focus on agent and multi-agent systems
which employ learning or adaptation.
The goal of this workshop is to increase awareness and interest in
adaptive agent research, encourage collaboration and give a
representative overview of current research in the area of adaptive and
learning agents and multi-agent systems. It aims at bringing together not
only scientists from different areas of computer science but also from
different fields studying similar concepts (e.g., game theory,
bio-inspired control, mechanism design).
This workshop will focus on all aspects of adaptive and learning agents
and multi-agent systems with a particular emphasis on how to modify
established learning techniques and/or create new learning paradigms to
address the many challenges presented by complex real-world problems.
The topics of interest include but are not limited to:
* Novel combinations of reinforcement and supervised learning
* Integrated learning approaches that work with other agent
reasoning modules like negotiation, trust models, coordination,
* Supervised multi-agent learning
* Reinforcement learning (single and multi-agent)
* Planning (single and multi-agent)
* Reasoning (single and multi-agent)
* Distributed learning
* Adaptation and learning in dynamic environments
* Evolution of agents in complex environments
* Co-evolution of agents in a multi-agent setting
* Cooperative exploration and learning to cooperate and collaborate
* Learning trust and reputation
* Communication restrictions and their impact on multi-agent
* Design of reward structure and fitness measures for coordination
* Scaling learning techniques to large systems of learning and
adaptive agents
* Emergent behaviour in adaptive multi-agent systems
* Game theoretical analysis of adaptive multi-agent systems
* Neuro-control in multi-agent systems
* Bio-inspired multi-agent systems
* Applications of adaptive and learning agents and multi-agent
systems to real world complex systems
* Learning of Co-ordination

Submission Details
Paper submissions may be emailed in the pdf format to with the subject Submission ALA-11. Submissions may
be up to 8 pages in the ACM proceedings format (i.e., the same as AAMAS
papers in the main conference track). Accepted work will be allocated
time for oral presentation during the one day workshop. Papers accepted at
the workshop will also be eligible for inclusion in a planned Springer
post-proceedings volume.
