Adaptive and Learning Agents (ALA) encompasses diverse fields such as Computer Science, Software Engineering, Biology, as well as Cognitive and Social Sciences. The ALA workshop will focus on agents and multiagent systems which employ learning or adaptation.
This workshop is a continuation of the long running AAMAS series of workshops on adaptive agents, now in its twelfth year.
The goal of this workshop is to increase awareness of and interest in adaptive agent research, encourage collaboration and give a representative overview of current research in the area of adaptive and learning agents and multi-agent systems. It aims at bringing together not only scientists from different areas of computer science (e.g. agent architectures, reinforcement learning, evolutionary algorithms) but also from different fields studying similar concepts (e.g. game theory, bio-inspired control, mechanism design).
The workshop will serve as an inclusive forum for the discussion of ongoing or completed work covering both theoretical and practical aspects of adaptive and learning agents and multi-agent systems.
