Call for Papers
This is Opportunities and Perils for Computational Virtual Organizations Symposium, one of the fall symposium series from AAAI. It is going to be organized at November 15-17, 2013 in Westin Arlington Gateway, Arlington, Virginia.
There is a strong ongoing trend for traditional organizations to adapt to socially networked nature of human population. This trend allows organizations to be transformed from brick and mortar to a more virtual nature. On the automation front, virtual organizations are erected that relieve humans of tedious, routine tasks as well as error prone decisions. Another set of virtual organizations (e.g., first responder systems) provide interface tools for timely and coherent interaction among far flung decision making components. We invite contributions from those involved in conceiving and building computational virtual organizations to share their strides in order to identify pitfalls and underscore successful steps. Papers describing advanced prototypes, systems, tools and techniques and position papers indicating future directions are also encouraged. Papers describing original work are invited in any of the areas listed below. Accepted papers must be presented at the symposium by one of the authors, and it will appear in the proceedings of AAAI 2013 symposium series. Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance and originality. Both full research reports and work-in-progress reports are welcome. High quality papers will be selected for extension and made ready for inclusion in a special issue of the “Lecture Note in Social Networks,” published by springer.
