SemaTeam: Semantics for the Computational Understanding of Human Teamwork

Computational theories of teamwork describe how individual and independent agents can create a collective behavior as if the group were acting as one. Computational teamwork is created through the use of data structures, elements, and processes such as: team plans, team goals, team roles, role capability requirements, and protocols for the formulation of such structures. All processes related to teamwork are distributed across different individual agents, and involve verbal and non-verbal communications in a situated environment. No two agents share the same memory, so any collaborative or collective mental state must be achieved via some form of communicative signaling.
This special track invites submissions on the computational semantics of teamwork.

Topics include, but not limited to:

  • Ontologies for the representation of teamwork structures, elements, and processes
  • Logics and reasoning mechanisms by which teamwork structures, elements and processes can be interpreted, combined and refactored
  • Computational representation and reasoning of the mental state of others: other teammates, other teams, potential teammates, adversaries, etc.
  • Computational acquisition strategies by which verbal and nonverbal signals can be matched to teamwork ontologies
  • Computational theories of semantics and pragmatics as they relate to team process
  • Computational mechanisms to enable agents to achieve common semantics and common understanding in dynamic and variable group compositions
  • Ontologies for social structures and authority relations that are found in teamwork
  • Multi-modal team-oriented dialogue understanding systems
  • Multi-party team-oriented dialogue understanding systems
  • Multi-party dialogue plan acquisition systems
  • Semantic acquisition from dialogue of: referential expressions, spatial relations, speech acts, role definition, commitment, decommitment, status, progress, etc.
  • Metrics for the evaluation of computational performance of human teamwork understanding systems
