19th International Workshop on Trust in Agent Societies

Co-located with AAMAS 2017 (http://www.aamas2017.org)
May 8-12, 2017, Sao Paulo - Brazil

Trust is important in many kinds of interactions, including direct or computer-
mediated human interaction, human-computer interaction and among social agents;
it characterizes those elements that are essential in social reliability. It
also informs the selection of partners for successful multiagent coordination
(for example, in robotics applications). Trust is more than communication that
is robust against repudiation or interference. The reliability of information
about the status of a trade partner, for example, is only partly dependent on
secure communication.
With the growing prevalance of social interaction through electronic means,
trust, reputation, privacy and identity become more and more important. Trust is
not just a simple, monolithic concept; it is multi-faceted, operating at many
levels of interaction, and playing many roles. Another growing trend is the use
of reputation mechanisms, and in particular the interesting link between trust
and reputation. Many computational and theoretical models and approaches to
reputation have been developed in recent years (for ecommerce, social networks,
blogs, etc.). Further, identity and associated trustworthiness must be
ascertained
for reliable interactions and transactions. Trust is foundational for the notion
of agency and for its defining relation of acting "on behalf of". It is also
critical for modeling and supporting groups and teams, for both organization and
coordination, with the related trade-off between individual utility
and collective
interest. The electronic medium seems to weaken the usual bonds of
social control
and the disposition to cheat grows stronger: this is yet another context where
trust modeling is critical.
The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers (ideally from different
disciplines) who can contribute to a better understanding of trust and
reputation
in agent societies. We welcome submissions of high-quality research addressing
issues that are clearly relevant to trust, deception, privacy,
reputation, security
and control in agent-based systems, from theoretical, applied and
interdisciplinary
perspectives. Submitted contributions should be original and not
submitted elsewhere.
Papers accepted for presentation must be relevant to the workshop, and to
demonstrate clear exposition, offering new ideas in suitable depth and detail.
The scope of the workshop includes (but is not limited to):
o Trust and risk-aware decision making
o Game-theoretic models of trust
o Deception and fraud, and its detection and prevention
o Intrusion resilience in trusted computing
o Reputation mechanisms
o Trust in the socio-technical system
o Trust in partners and in authorities
o Trust during coordination and negotiation of agents
o Privacy and access control in multi-agent systems
o Detecting and preventing collusion
o Trust in human-agent interaction
o Trust and information provenance
o Trust and identity
o Trust within organizations
o Trust, security and privacy in social networks
o Trustworthy infrastructure and services
o Trust modeling for real-world applications

Submission and Publication
Authors should submit original papers (maximum length 12 single-columned pages)
in PDF through the Easychair system:
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=trust2017
Formal proceedings of the workshop will be published through CEUR-WS.org.
CEUR.org is a green open-access publisher. Authors of papers published in the
proceedings retain copyright of their material. To enable us to produce this
publication, authors are expected to use the LaTeX template provided on the
workshop website.

The most "visionary paper" will be published by Springer in a book under the
Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) - Hot Topics series. The book
will be a compilation of the most visionary papers of the AAMAS-2017 Workshops,
where one paper will be selected from each AAMAS-2017 workshop. Additionally,
the "best paper" will be published by Springer in a book under the
Communications
in Computer and Information Science (CCIS) series. The book will be a
compilation
of the best papers of the AAMAS-2017 Workshops, where one paper will be selected
from each AAMAS-2017 workshop. Authors of the selected most visionary paper and
the best paper are expected to provide their latex files promptly upon request.
We also plan to invite some of the best papers from our workshop to be
extended for
a special issue in Journal of Trust Management
(www.journaloftrustmanagement.com).
