About these proceedings


This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-conference proceedings of the 10th International Workshops on Coordination, Organizations, Institutions and Norms in Agent Systems, COIN 2014. The workshops were co-located with AAMAS 2014, held in Paris, France, in May 2014, and with PRICAI 2014, held in Gold Coast, QLD, Australia, in December 2014.

The 16 full papers were carefully reviewed and selected for inclusion in this volume. The papers cover a wide range of topics from work on formal aspects of normative and team based systems, to software engineering with organisational concepts, to applications of COIN based systems, and to philosophical issues surrounding socio-technical systems. They highlight not only the richness of existing work in the field, but also point out the challenges and exciting research that remains to be done in the area.
