The Safety and Security in Multiagent Systems (SASEMAS) series of workshops that took place from 2004-2006 provided a forum for the exchange of ideas and discussion on areas related to the safety and security of multiagent systems. In particular, the workshops explored issues related to the development and deployment of safe and secure agents and multiagents systems with topics ranging from definitions of safety and security for single agents or entire systems to verification/validation of agent and multiagent systems to design, mechanisms and deployment to user requirements, agent behavior, and trust.
This book contains 22 papers grouped into five main sections according to the following topics: methodological approaches to high-assurance systems, prevention and response to harm/failures, stochastic approaches to predictability and unpredictability, safety and security in human-computer interactions, and self-protection.
