Aims and Focus
The use of cooperative game theory to study how agents should cooperate and collaborate, along with the related topic of coalition formation, has received growing attention from the multiagent systems, game theory, and electronic commerce communities.
The workshop is intended to focus on topics in cooperation in multiagent systems, cooperative game theory, cooperative solution concepts, coalition formation, and applications.
We encourage submission of papers describing original work, as well as accepted AAMAS short papers, and work recently published in conferences other than AAMAS. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Cooperative game theory
- Coalition formation
- Joint decision making and voting
- Games on networks
- Game theoretic centrality
- Representation issues
- Collaborative filtering
- Market and economics based cooperation
- Behavioral models for cooperative games
- Applications of cooperative solution concepts
The workshop should be of interest to researchers who study the mathematical and algorithmic properties of cooperative games; researches interested in promoting cooperation in multiagent systems, designing and implementing collaborating agents and mechanisms that incentivize cooperation; and researchers studying the underlying connections between cooperative game theory and other topics in game theory and computer science.
We also welcome participants who are interested in applications of cooperative game theory (for example, trading agents, recommender systems, and energy and water management). In particular we encourage submissions on empirical and experimental study of applying solution concepts from cooperative game theory to real world problems.

Submission of contributions: February 7, 2016
- The submission deadline has been extended to: February 14, 2016
- Acceptance notification: March 22, 2016
- Workshop: May 9-10, 2016
Submission must follow the Springer LNCS format (see http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=016467933410 for formatting instructions) and should be a maximum of 15 pages.
Papers must be submitted in PDF through easychair:
CoopMAS is considered a nonarchival venue and there are no published proceedings, though informal proceedings will be distributed to all workshop participants.
This means that publishing a paper in CoopMAS should not prevent one from submitting it to a conference or a journal at the same or later time. The requirement to use the LNCS format is imposed to ensure uniformity.
