Many of the systems that can be found in our environment can be modelled as complex adaptive systems that consist of a dynamic network of agents (which may represent individuals, businesses, services, resources) that perform a set of activities in parallel and react to what other agents are doing. Multi-agent systems are considered a suitable tool for the study of complex adaptive systems and specially those distributed and dynamic. The Workshop MAS for Complex Networks and Social Computation is focused on providing a forum in which researchers from many disciplines and methodological backgrounds discuss ideas, research questions, recent results, and future challenges in this emerging area of research and public interest.
