Call for Papers - Implementing Ethical Reasoning in Autonomous Agents -
EUMAS 2024 [https://euramas.github.io/eumas2024/]

EUMAS’24 will feature a special track on Agents and Ethics. This track is
focussed on the implementation of ethical reasoning mechanisms in various
autonomous decision-making settings. Depending on the context of the agent
(software / hardware), the kinds of values (or value-conflicts) that are
encountered could be quite varied. The multiplicity and agency of the
stakeholders involved (from highly trained human-machine teams to a cohort
of elderly / children), also affect the possible value considerations
deeply.  This track aims to provide a venue for discussions of problems,
possible solution-concepts, best practices, benchmarks, related to machine

We welcome original, unpublished papers including improved versions of
extended abstracts or rejected papers from AAMAS, AAAI and IJCAI 2023. The
submission should describe work that has not been previously published,
accepted for publication, nor is currently under review by another
conference or journal. Proceedings, as a part of EUMAS 2024, will be
published as part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series of

Submissions are solicited on, but not limited to, the following themes /

* What kinds of values and value-conflicts are (in)expressible in
algorithmic form?
* Can ethical behaviour be guaranteed or verified in computational media?
* Implementation of ethical reasoning mechanisms founded on non-western
ethical traditions
* Can artificial moral decision-making be decoupled from mere
implementation of normative ethical theories?
* Privacy and Trust relationships between humans and machines in the
presence of hybrid actions
* Implementation of ethical reasoning in logic-based methods
* Representation of ethical principles in AI agents
* Machine-learning based approaches to ethical reasoning
* Development of machine ethics in cognitive robot programs
* Robot learning for ethical reasoning
* Integration of symbolic and neural information systems for ethical
* Development of formal frameworks for ethical decision-making
* Techniques for explaining the ethical reasoning of AI agents
* Frameworks for ethical collaboration between humans and AI agents
* Building trust in intelligent systems through ethical design and
