WOA 2022

23rd Workshop “From Objects to Agents”
Genova, Italy, 01/09/2022–03/09/2022

After the first successful 22 editions in Parma, Modena, Milano, Villasimius, Torino, Camerino, Catania, Genova, Palermo, Parma, Rimini, Rende, Milano, Torino, Catania, Napoli, Catania, Scilla, Palermo, Parma, Bologna (online) and Bologna, the 23rd edition of the Workshop “From Objects to Agents” (WOA) will be hosted by the University of Genova from September 1 to 3, 2022, in the beautiful location of Casa Paganini - InfoMus, in the recently restored monumental building of S.Maria delle Grazie La Nuova.

Following the significant interest that all facets of Artificial Intelligence (AI) have been recently obtaining, the topic for WOA 2022 is

Emotional and Believable Human-Agent Interaction

WOA 2022 will bring together researchers to discuss those issues and to suggest future research questions and perspectives laying at the intersection among Emotional and Believable agents and MAS, and Human-Agent Interaction. Therefore, the workshop aims at working as an interdisciplinary hub for thinkers, students, researchers, and developers who wish to understand and exploit the impact and potential of agent- and MAS-based techniques, when combined with Human-Agent Interactions.

More information about the workshop, including important dates, can be found here:

topics of interest
  • Agents theory and technology related to AI or Believable Human-Agent Interaction
  • Software engineering techniques for agents involving Believable Human-Agent Interaction
  • Languages and tools for agent-oriented and Believable Human-Agent Interaction intelligent systems
  • Agent-oriented architectures for Believable Human-Agent Interaction
  • eXplainable and ethical AI in agent-oriented models, architectures, or systems to support Believable Human-Agent Interaction
  • Trust, security, and privacy in the design and development of agents capable of a Believable Human-Agent Interaction

Moreover, the following topics are also more than welcome:

  • Adaptive, animated, and personality-driven agents
  • Agent-oriented software engineering
  • Agent-based languages and platforms
  • Agent-oriented methods and development tools
  • Agents and objects
  • Agents and sensor networks
  • Agent-based modelling and simulation
  • Coordination, cooperation and communication for agents
  • Formal models for agents and MAS
  • Hardware and software infrastructures for agents and multi-agent systems
  • Industrial applications of agents and MAS
  • Learning, planning and reasoning for agents
  • Security, trust and responsibility in MAS
  • Software agents and the Web
  • Standards and interoperability for agents and MAS
  • Theoretical, conceptual and ontological basis of agents and MAS

along with any other MAS-related topic.
