Call for Papers and Participation

First International Workshop on
Social Life (SOLI'03)

http://www.informatik.uni-hamburg.de/TGI/events/soli03/cfp.html

Workshop date: 14 September, 2003
held in conjunction with ECAL 2003, 
the 7th European Conference on ARTIFICIAL Life,
14. - 17. September 2003, Dortmund, Germany.

organised by 

Chair of AI and Applied Computer Science, University of Würzburg, 
AI Lab of the Department of Computer Sciences, Humboldt University
Berlin, and 
"Theoretical Foundations of Computer Science" Group, University of
Hamburg 

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Deadline for submissions: June 2, 2003  
Notification of acceptance: Juli 1, 2003 
Deadline for final papers: August 1, 2003 
Workshop: September 14, 2003 

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Certain phenomena recognized and observed in the domain of Artificial
Life correspond to and recur on specific concepts in the mind of an
observer. In the context of multi agent systems, social concepts become
increasingly important. In the process of constructing agents and multi
agent systems, computer scientists tend to apply their own, relatively
restricted and everyday-knowledge-based set of social concepts. Problems
occuring in the process of construction can be traced down to technical
and/or conceptual causes. 

The application of social concepts to all kinds of computational
systems, especially in the domain of Artificial Life, can profit from an
active and lifely cooperation with disciplines like Sociology,
Psychology, Philosophy, Law, Economics and the Cognitive Sciences.
Artificial Life has a main focus on interaction and sociality on
different layers of observation, let it be on population scale or in
proteine interaction. Intensive research lead to advanced theories that
try to explain emergent cooperation, evolution of stable social pattern,
or even the evolution of communication. This highly interdisciplinary
research may give interesting incentives to the more technology-based
Multi Agent System area. Also Multi Agent Systems can be seen as an
interdisciplinary research area with roots not only in computer science
but also in Sociology, Economics and the Cognitive Sciences. Thus there
is a large intersection between Artificial Life and Multi Agent Systems,
especially when dealing with social concepts. 

The workshop will take place just before the 7th European Conference on
Artificial Life, 14.-17. September 2003, Dortmund, Germany 

The Workshop date will be 14. September 2003. 

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Submissions

Innovative and original papers in English language are welcome for
submission. The papers will be reviewed by at least two programme
committee members. Selection criteria will focus on relevance to the
special topic, originality with respect to the state of the art, and
potential for discussion. The program committee invites submissions of
contributions as: long versions (10 - 20 pages) and short versions (up
to 5 pages). Submissions should be either in POSTSCRIPT or PDF format
and emailed to [log in to unmask] . 

Accepted papers will be included in the workshop proceedings which will
appear either as a technical report of the Department of Computer
Science, University of Hamburg or as a workshop binder provided by the
ECAL organizers. The proceedings will be available at the workshop. The
best contributions will be considered for further publication.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Range of Interest

Most interesting in view of the concerns of the workshop is, that multi
agent systems are now seen as an excellent vehicle in terms of
metaphors, concepts, and tools to support the research issues mentioned
below. Ways and means to approach all these challenges can be
theoretical, experimental, empirical, prototypical, applied, etc. We
expect to have many different perspectives which will lead to an
interesting and lively discussion during and after the workshop as we
experienced it with other interdisciplinary workshops. 

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: 

* Emergence of Social patterns 
* Micro-Macro linkage problems 
* Social foundations of (artificial) life 
* Hybrid systems (artificial and human) 
* Communication, coordination, and cooperation 
* Scalability and self-stabilisation of organisational structures 
* Evolution and adaptation in social contexts 
* Autopoiesis and autonomy 
* Dynamic structures and organisational patterns 
* Communication, coordination, and cooperation 
* Symbol-grounding and -processing 
* Tools and frameworks for social concepts in agent systems 
* Process and methodology for engineering social system 
* Applications and implementation of social concepts in agent systems
