The 2nd Collaborative Online Organization workshop:

Call for Papers For COOS'14

This workshop will attract experts from scientists, researchers and engineers interested in the theory and practice of computational models of network organizations. The objective is to advance understanding and crafting of network organizations. Substantial amount of research work is ongoing in distributed knowledge management. This workshop intends to emphasize the operational elements of various networks that facilitate elements of network organization. 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 workshop by one of the authors, and it will appear in the proceedings of AAMAS 2014 workshop. 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 post-proceedings of Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS)..


Social as well as cognitive foundations surrounding network organizations are of special interest. We invite theoretical and pragmatic contributions from specialists with capacities for explaining or predicting changes in the life cycle of online organizations.


Network organizations generate and reflect social capital embedded in collaboration networks that play central role for their continued functioning and maintenance. Explorations of roles of social capital are within our scope.

Overview of the Current Conjunction:

- AAMAS 2014 :

The AAMAS (International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems) series was initiated in 2002 as a merger of three highly respected individual conferences: AGENTS (International Conference on Autonomous Agents), ICMAS (International Conference on Multi-Agent Systems), and ATAL (International Workshop on Agent Theories, Architectures, and Languages). The aim of the joint conference is to provide a single, high-profile, internationally renowned forum for research in the theory and practice of autonomous agents and multiagent systems.
