#Call for Papers

An increasing number of attempts from several communities has been recorded to advance the state of the art of explainable AI. However, most of their effort focuses on machine learning, automated planning, and only marginally applies to Explainable Agency i.e., autonomous agents and multi-agent systems. In particular, much of the work in machine learning has focused on how to derive more `interpretable’ models from deep neural networks.

The aim of the workshop is to gather researchers interested in developing an explainable agency for goal-oriented agents and robots. In particular, participants are invited to submit papers addressing whichever phase of explainability [15] (e.g., generation, communication, and reception) fostering transparency in Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems (MAS) and robots. Compliance with such requirements is becoming necessary in most systems where agent-oriented approaches are increasingly employed.

Therefore, the purpose of this second “International workshop on Explainable Intelligence in Autonomous Agent and Multi-Agent Systems” (EXTRAAMAS) is five-fold:

– to strengthen the common ground for the study and development of explainable and understandable autonomous agents, robots, and Multi-Agent Systems (MAS),

– to investigate the potential of agent-based systems in the development of personalized user-aware explainable AI,

– to assess the impact of transparent and explained solutions on the user/agents behaviors,

– to discuss motivating examples and concrete applications in which the lack of explainability leads to problems, which would be resolved by explainability,

– to assess and discuss the first demonstrators and proof of concepts paving the way for the next generation systems,

– to explore the potential of goal-driven XAI for industrial exploitation.
