[Apologies if you receive multiple copies of this Call for Papers]

Overview:  This year at NeurIPS, a collection of researchers from around
the world are coming together for the second annual Cooperative AI Workshop
<https://www.cooperativeai.com/neurips-2021/workshop-information>. As part
of the workshop, we are inviting paper submissions in NeurIPS format.
Please do share this invitation widely with any contacts who might be
interested: we would like to reach the broadest possible audience.

This is an excellent opportunity to participate in a deep-rooted and
continually growing community around the important and ambitious topic of
Cooperative AI. We'd be equally delighted to see papers from early career
researchers, experts in adjacent fields and experienced groups in the
Cooperative AI space.

We invite high-quality paper submissions of new work in the following


   Agent cooperation

   Multi-agent communication

   Team formation, trust, and reputation

   Negotiation and bargaining

   Resolving commitment problems

   Agent societies, organizations, and institutions

   Equilibrium computation

   Markets, mechanism design, and economic cooperation

   Multi-agent learning

   Multi-agent and Human-AI coordination (including zero-shot)

*****  SUBMISSION DEADLINE:  25 September 2021  *****

For submission requirements and guidelines, please see the CfP.

Mentorship program: This year, we are offering a mentorship program
in which junior researchers who plan to submit a paper to the workshop can
sign-up <https://forms.gle/1vB2paJfRojCfv6s9> to be paired with a senior
researcher with expertise that could benefit the paper. The senior
researcher will provide 1-2 hours of feedback on the research method and
paper.  Any junior researcher (< 3 years of PhD) is welcome to apply, but
we will prioritize matching those from underrepresented groups if there are
not enough mentors.  We currently have more mentees than mentors, so if you
are a researcher with experience in any of the relevant topics, please
consider signing up to mentor <https://forms.gle/NgiiCLMRKt1yHYwD7>!

If you have any questions about the workshop, please do reach out to
cooperativeai at gmail.com, and one of the organizers will be in touch.


Kalesha, on behalf of the Organizing Committee
