Trust 2014

The 17th edition of this international workshop was co-located with AAMAS 2014, the 13th International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems held in Paris, France, on the 6th May 2014.


Multiagent systems operate across organizational and social boundaries, facilitating interaction among and between entities, both human and computational. For interaction within such complex socio-technical systems to be effective/reliable, however, decisions must be grounded upon identity and associated trustworthiness of potential partners. Trust is foundational for the notion of agency and for its defining relation of acting "on behalf of". It is also central in modeling and supporting groups, teams and organizations, human-agent interaction and in modeling the distribution of (mis)information in agent-based systems. The aim of this workshop is to bring together leading research on the use of computational models of trust in agent systems and societies. Submissions to this workshop should address key challenges in trust from theoretical, methodological, empirical or applied perspectives. Perspectives from interdisciplinary research are particularly welcome. The scope of the workshop includes:
  • Trust and risk-aware decision making
  • Game-theoretic models of trust
  • Deception and fraud, and its detection and prevention
  • Intrusion resilience in trusted computing
  • Reputation networks
  • Privacy and access control in multi-agent systems
  • Trust and information provenance
  • Trust-based agent organization/coalition formation
  • Detecting and preventing collusion
  • Trust in human-agent interaction
  • Identity, behavior, and information trustworthiness
  • Trust, security and privacy in social networks
  • Socio-cognitive models of trust
  • Trust and argumentation
  • Trustworthy infrastructures and services
  • Trust modeling for real-world applications
