25th Workshop "From Objects to Agents" (WOA 2024)
WOA “From Objects to Agents” is an international workshop in the IT field which, every year, serves as a forum for Italian and international researchers and professionals working on all aspects of intelligent agents and multi-agent systems (MAS). The conference has reached its 25th edition, which will be celebrated in 2024, at the Forte di Bard (AO) from 7 to 10 July 2024. It is an event typically appreciated by young researchers for its constructive and interactive environment. Multi-agent systems are computing structures composed of multiple autonomous agents that interact with each other and with their surroundings to achieve specific objectives. Following the considerable interest that all aspects of Artificial Intelligence (AI) are recently obtaining, and the specific relevance of the topic also within the “Smart West” flagship project, as part of the NODES – Spoke 4 project, the 2024 edition of the workshop will focus on the theme Smart and Agile Agent Technologies for a Sustainable Model of Distributed Working. Specifically, the COVID-19 pandemic has acted as an accelerator in the digitalization process of small-medium enterprises and public administrations, promoting new forms of hybrid/remote work. This requires the design and implementation of new processes and adequate technological infrastructures to address new challenges, including, but not limited to, the transformation of leadership and control, the shift towards a goal-oriented work organization (due of a reduction in the difference between employed and self-employed workers), the reduction of informal in-person interactions, the need for support to find an adequate work/life balance, the worker's well-being, his safety, and his lifelong learning. The systems and technologies developed in the field of agents and multi-agent systems can provide fundamental support in creating a new and sustainable working model at multiple levels: economic, but also technological, environmental and social, with particular reference to the peculiarities of mountain territories. During the workshop, thematic sessions will be organized (keynote talks, panel discussions) specifically focused on the challenges of remote/hybrid working in a mountain environment, and on the solutions made available by research on agents and multi-agent systems. There will also be a moment of discussion with local stakeholders, in order to involve them and identify which technological tools can best respond to their needs. Among the topics of interest identified for this edition it is possible to highlight: Agent-oriented software engineering Agents and sensor networks Agent-based modeling and simulation Business process management Compliance Hardware and software infrastructures for agents and multi-agent systems Industrial applications of agents and MAS Next generation socio-technical systems Agent-based enabling technologies Intelligent tools and devices for smart collaboration AI-supported models and tools for remote working Digital and Sustainable Mountain Multi-agent systems for remote working in mountainous territories

Regenerating Communities, Territories, Architectures
In St. Marcel, seminar meeting on the regeneration of communities, territories, and architectures. The meeting aims to initiate a multidisciplinary reflection on the enhancement of local production chains (particularly those related to the forest resource) as a possible engine for urban-architectural, social, and economic regeneration of the territory. The morning seminar will be a meeting point for experts who will discuss the potential and issues related to the need to integrate the enhancement of local production resources, constructive cultures, and the redevelopment of spaces serving communities. In the afternoon, through an excursion in the woods of Saint-Marcel guided by industry professionals, there will be an opportunity to delve into the theme of the local forest resource in relation to the development of future scenarios. The meeting will take place in St. Marcel on October 27, 2023, starting at 9:00 AM. Event promoted by the Polytechnic University of Turin - Department of Architecture and Design - research center Institute of Mountain Architecture. With the patronage of the Municipality of Saint-Marcel, GAL Valle d'Aosta, Consortium of Local Authorities of Valle d'Aosta – CELVA
