About these proceedings


This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-workshop proceedings of the International Workshop on Coordination, Organization, Institutions and Norms in Agent Systems, COIN 2008, held as two events at AAMAS 2008, the 7th International Joint Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems in Estoril, Portugal, in May 2008 and at AAAI 2008, the 23rd AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Chicago, IL, USA, in July 2008.

This volume is the 4th in a series focussing on issues in Coordination, Organizations, Institutions and Norms (COIN) in multi-agent systems. The 17 papers contained in this volume are the revised and extended versions of a selection of papers presented and discussed in these two workshops. The papers are organized in the following topical sections: from coordination to organization, from organization to coordination, formalization of norms and institutions, design of norms and institutions, as well as applications.
