Token approach for role allocation in extreme teams: analysis and experimental evaluation

P. Seem, A. Farinelli, S. Okamoto, M. Tambe
13th IEEE International Workshops on Enabling Technologies: Infrastructure for Collaborative Enterprises  
First, we represent the role allocation problem as a Distributed Constraint Optimization Problem and use tokens representing roles to minimize constraint violations.  ...  LA-DCOP has allowed an order of magnitude scale-up in extreme teams, with role allocation in a fully distributed proxy-based teams with up to 200 members.  ...  In this paper, we have described a novel and flexible approach to role allocation in extreme teams that can successfully operate in OCS domains.  ...

Allocating tasks in extreme teams

Paul Scerri, Alessandro Farinelli, Steven Okamoto, Milind Tambe
2005 Proceedings of the fourth international joint conference on Autonomous agents and multiagent systems - AAMAS '05  
We propose a novel distributed task allocation algorithm for extreme teams, called LA-DCOP, that incorporates three key ideas.  ...  Extreme teams, large-scale agent teams operating in dynamic environments, are on the horizon.  ...  SUMMARY AND RELATED WORK In this paper, we have described a novel approach to task allocation in extreme teams.  ...

Gender diversity in teams

Ghazala Azmat
2014 IZA World of Labor  
In 2011, women accounted for 16% of directors on corporate boards in the US and 12% in Europe. It is rare for firms to have more than one female director, suggesting tokenism.  ...  However, many experimental studies have looked beyond these explanations to see whether psychological attributes and preferences play a role.  ...

Effort Provision and Communication in Teams Competing Over the Commons

Neil James Buckley, Stuart Mestelman, R. Andrew Muller, Stephan Schott, Jingjing Zhang
2010 Social Science Research Network  
We use detailed content analysis to evaluate the impact of communication messages on behavior across treatments.  ...  The effect is stronger for fixed groups (partners treatment) than for randomly reassigned groups (strangers treatment).  ...  Sutter and Strassmair [21] evaluate within-group and between-group conflict with and without communication in a tournament that involves two teams that compete for a fixed prize which the losing team  ...

'On the same page?' Marginalisation and positioning practices in intercultural teams

Carolin Debray, Helen Spencer-Oatey
2019 Journal of Pragmatics  
Utilising an in-depth single case study approach and drawing on interactional data and interviews, it explores participation in team meetings.  ...  She calls for more research in the area in order to gain insights into reasons for this. Our study partly addresses this call.  ...  Acknowledgements We would like to thank Troy McConachy and two anonymous reviewers for their very helpful comments on previous versions of this paper.  ...

Designing the Characteristics of Design Teams via Cognitively Ins.pdf

Christopher McComb
2018 Figshare  
Months, if not years, pass between the initial conception of a study and the final analysis of results.  ...  Teams are typically studied through controlled laboratory experiments or through longitudinal studies that observe teams in situ. However, both of these study types can be costly and time-consuming.  ...  Team size plays a role in the search for solutions, but prior findings are mixed.  ...
