The 13th International Workshop on Coordination, Organization, Institutions and Norms in Agent Systems will be held on August 22, 2011 at the Campus Scientifique de la Doua, Lyon, France as part of the WI-IAT'11 workshop programme.
Coordination, organizations, institutions and norms are four key
governance elements for the regulation of open multi-agent systems,
and the COIN workshop creates a space for lively debate and
exploration of these four elements that are central to the design and
deployment of open systems. Furthermore, in the last three years there
has been much interest from the Service Engineering community to adopt
agent-based coordination and organisational approaches in order to
bring flexibility and adaptiveness to new generations of
Service-Oriented applications. Thus, the workshop topics are also very
relevant to the broader Service Engineering and Semantic Web
