    • Cooperation and teamwork, including organizational structuring and design for multi-agent systems, self-organization, emergent functionality and swarm intelligence.
    • Multi-agent planning and planning for multi-agent systems, and the coordination of multi-agent plans and activities.
    • Computational auction systems, computational market systems, algorithmic/automated mechanism design, automated negotiation, computational aspects of game theory (cooperative and non-cooperative), and computational social choice theory.
    • Knowledge representation and reasoning for, and logical foundations of, autonomous agents and multi-agent systems.
    • Agent programming languages - their implementation, semantics, and evaluation.
    • Distributed constraint processing and distributed constraint optimization.
    • Multi-agent argumentation and dialogue, conflict detection and resolution.
    • Learning agents, including: computational architectures for learning agents; evolution, adaptation; multi-agent learning.
    • Agent communication languages, their semantics, pragmatics, and implementation, and agent communication protocols and conversations.
    • Conventions, commitments, norms, obligations, and social laws in multi-agent systems, and models of trust and reputation.
    • Believable and synthetic agents and characters, and human-agent interaction.
    • Environments, testbeds, and programming languages for experimentation with, and analysis of, agent systems.
    • Ontologies for agent systems, agents and the semantic web, agents and semantic web services, Grid-based systems, and service-oriented computing.
