About COIN

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 communities.
