CFP - International Conference on Computational Collective Intelligence (ICCCI 2009)

Second Call for Papers
ICCCI 2009
1st International Conference on Computational Collective Intelligence: 
Semantic Web, Social Networks & Multiagent Systems 
5-7 Oct., 2009 Wroclaw (Poland)

Organized in cooperation with: Wroclaw University of Technology (Poland), Swinburne University of Technology (Australia) and National Taiwan University of Science and Technology (Taiwan).
Computational Collective Intelligence (CCI) is most often understood as an AI sub-field dealing with soft computing methods which enable making group decisions or processing knowledge among autonomous units acting in distributed environments. Web-based systems, social networks and multi-agent systems very often need these tools for working out consistent knowledge states, resolving conflicts and making decisions. The aim of this conference is to provide an internationally respected forum for scientific research in the computer-based methods of collective intelligence and their applications in (but not limited to) such fields as semantic web, social networks and multi-agent systems.
Conference Scope:
SEMANTIC WEB: semantic annotation of Web data resources; Web services (service description, discovery, composition); ontology management (mediation and reconciliation, creation, evaluation, merging, alignment, evolution, linking); automatic metadata generation; (semi-) automatic ontology creation; semantic web inference schemes; reasoning in the semantic web; knowledge portals; information discovery and retrieval in semantic web; etc.
SOCIAL NETWORKS: computational technologies in social networks creation and support; advanced groupware and social networks; models for social network emergence and growth; ontology development in social networks; advanced analysis for social networks dynamics; social networks and semantic communication.
MULTIAGENT SYSTEMS: cooperative distributed problem solving. Task and resource allocation. Mechanism design, auctions, and game theory. Modeling other agents and self. Multi-agent planning. Negotiation protocols. Multi-agent learning. Conflict resolution. Trust and reputation management. Privacy, safety and security. Scalability, robustness and dependability. Social and organizational structures. Verification and validation. Novel computing paradigms (autonomic, grid, P2P, ubiquitous computing). Brokering and matchmaking. Agent-oriented software engineering, including implementation languages and frameworks. Mobile agents. Performance, scalability, robustness, and dependability. Verification and validation. E-business agents. Pervasive computing. Privacy, safety, and security.
The proceedings of ICCCI 2009 will be published as a volume in series Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence of Springer. Authors are invited to submit original papers in LNAI style, up to 12 pages (regular papers) or 8 pages (short papers). For the post-conference publication several special issues in ISI/SCI journals are planed.
