Internet of Agents

The First International Workshop on the Internet of Agents (IoA)

WI Conference IoA 2017

Omaha, Nebraska United States

October 13, 2016


IoA Workshop,

On the confluence between Multi-Agent Systems (MAS) and the Internet of Things (IoT), there is a strong ongoing trend for the IoT to seize the intelligent nature/architecture of the MAS. In the Internet of Agents (IoA) workshop, we aim to understand the current range of nascent network centric agents. At one end of the spectrum, this includes agents’ efforts to form collaborative units. On the other end of the spectrum, we seek to understand techniques and methodologies for constructing online agents that represent interests of their actual counterparts and take actions autonomously. This workshop will reflect the impacts of the dynamic network proliferation and start of smart agent systems that exploit and explore opportunities heralded by the fast social-pace of interconnectivity.

Smart agents are aware of the social climate of their environment while performing their design tasks or multitasks. They account for interactions with other agents so as to perform social acts in order to complement their physical and speech acts. This workshop emphasizes on the operational elements of the dynamic network that facilitate intelligence on the Internet. Social and cognitive foundations surrounding IoA that include nature of interactions among agents engaged in a meaningful exchange are of special interest.

IoA Workshop

-> Moments from the event on Oct 13, 2016.


The workshop seeks to attract papers concerning:

  • Discussing general challenges of IoA and potential solutions,
  • Presenting a novel architecture of IoA,
  • Describing experiments or prototype design for IoA, or
  • Presenting successful applications combining IoT and MAS.
This can be through theoretical analyses or simulation methods.

Topics of Interest: (Not exhaustive)

  • Agents-based interactive environments
  • Architectures of cognitively reasoned interactions
  • Cooperation and collaboration mechanisms
  • Collective benefits of political fallouts and economic externalities
  • Computational models of distributed technologies
  • IoT/M2M applications and services employing MAS
  • Globalized networks and grid alliances
  • Network-centric warfare, individualism or organizations
  • Smart societies and cities deploying protocols of an IoA
