GAMES, ACTION, AND SOCIAL SOFTWARE
My activity focussed on a monograph on teamwork in multiagent environments. The book “Teamwork in Action”, written jointly with Rineke Verbrugge, aims to provide an insight into the rather complex and subtle subject of human/computer cooperation as well as to provide a coherent formal framework allowing us to adequately model social, organizational and environmental aspects of teamwork. The book draft in its present form is around 150 pages. A great deal of my scientific activity at NIAS was performed as a part of the Games, Action and Social Software group activity. It resulted in drafts of two chapters for the theme group book: “A logical view on teamwork”, written jointly with Rineke Verbrugge, and “Embedding Agents into Approximate Environments”, written jointly with Andrzej Szalas. I also investigated the mathematical complexity of our logical theory of teamwork which resulted in a journal paper “Complexity issues in multiagent logics”, published in Fundamenta Informaticae. A short version of this paper was presented at the AAMAS’07 (The Sixth International Joint Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems) in May 2007. I also wrote a joint publication with Rineke Verbrugge on “Collective attitudes for teamwork in dynamic environments” in Etudes Cognitives. Finally, with A. Szalas I gave a lecture on “Approximate BGI Systems” at the workshop on Logic for interacting agents. The workshop was organized by the Dutch Association of Logic in Regardz Center in Utrecht at January 19th 2007.
