The program included the following fifteen workshops: Advancements in POMDP Solvers, AI Education Workshop, Coordination, Organization, Institutions and Norms in Agent Systems, Enhanced Messaging, Human Implications of Human-Robot Interaction, Intelligent Techniques for Web Personalization and Recommender Systems, Metareasoning: Thinking about Thinking, Multidisciplinary Workshop on Advances in Preference Handling, Search in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics, Spatial and Temporal Reasoning, Trading Agent Design and Analysis, Transfer Learning for Complex Tasks, What Went Wrong and Why: Lessons from AI Research and Applications, and Wikipedia and Artificial Intelligence: An Evolving Synergy. The goal of the Coordination, Organizations, Institutions and Norms in Multiagent Systems workshop was to examine and define the current state of the art research in agent systems research related to coordination, organizations institutions and norming. The Intelligent Techniques for Web Personalization and Recommender Systems workshop was scheduled as a joint event, bringing together researchers and practitioners from the fields of web personalization and recommender systems. The Search in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics workshop brought together search researchers to share their ideas and disseminate their latest research results.

The AAAI-07 workshop program was held Sunday and Monday, July 22-23, in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The program included the following thirteen workshops: (1) Acquiring Planning Knowledge via Demonstration; (2) Configuration; (3) Evaluating Architectures for Intelligence; (4) Evaluation Methods for Machine Learning; (5) Explanation-Aware Computing; (6) Human Implications of Human-Robot Interaction; (7) Intelligent Techniques for Web Personalization; (8) Plan, Activity, and Intent Recognition; (9) Preference Handling for Artificial Intelligence; (10) Semantic e-Science; (11) Spatial and Temporal Reasoning; (12) Trading Agent Design and Analysis; and (13) Information Integration on the Web.
For the last two decades, configuration systems relying on AI techniques have successfully been applied in industrial environments. These systems support the configuration of complex products and services in shorter time with fewer errors and, therefore, reduce the costs of a mass-customization business model. The European Union-funded project entitled CUSTOMER-ADAPTIVE WEB INTERFACE FOR THE CONFIGURATION OF PRODUCTS AND SERVICES WITH MULTIPLE SUPPLIERS (CAWICOMS) aims at the next generation of web-based configuration applications that cope with two challenges of today's open, networked economy: (1) the support for heterogeneous user groups in an open-market environment and (2) the integration of configurable subproducts provided by specialized suppliers. This article describes the CAWICOMS WORKBENCH for the development of configuration services, offering personalized user interaction as well as distributed configuration of products and services in a supply chain.
