In this workshop, we want to discuss technological solutions for Adaptive Smart Areas, geo-positioned locations with a high need for sensorization, which facilitates their adaptation to significant changes in environmental conditions. Proposed solutions should facilitate decision-making of independent entities fostering collaboration and coordination among them to improve available resources or increase their efficiency in a specific area (cities, buildings, villages, farms, forests, etc...). Adaptive Smart Areas represent a new way of thinking about any kind of space by shaping a model that integrates aspects like energy efficiency, sustainable mobility, protection of the environment, and economic sustainability. These areas provide potentially unlimited settings for intelligent agents to display their ability to react, act proactively, interact between themselves, or otherwise plan, learn, etc., in an intelligent, or somewhat human, manner.

Therefore, this workshop aims to discuss the use of agent technology for Adaptive Smart Areas to provide intelligence to any of these areas. We welcome any paper about experiences on the use of agents in Adaptive Smart Areas tackling issues related to smart architectures, simulations, intelligent infrastructure, smart transport, robotics, open data, … We also intend to address specific methodological and technological issues raised by the real deployment of agents in Adaptive Smart Areas.
