New Article Acceptance: Multiagent Systems as a Team Member

I have received notice that my article titled Multiagent Systems as a Team Member will be published by Common Ground Publishing in their journal: The International Journal of Technology, Knowledge, and Society. The web page for the journal follows: http://ijt.cgpublisher.com

No date as to when the article will be published but it should be this fall. Listed below is the abstract for the journal article to give those interested an indication of what the article is about.

With the increasing complex business environment that organizations have to operate in today, teams are being utilized to complete complex tasks.  Teams are capable of completing complex tasks that no one individual can achieve.  Effective team decision-making requires team members to discuss new information (unshared knowledge) and to consider this new information along with existing information (shared knowledge).  Research has shown that shared knowledge is favored over unshared knowledge during team discussion, this is known as the unshared knowledge barrier in the literature.  One method of transferring unshared knowledge to shared knowledge is to take advantage of new multiagent systems (MAS) that are designed to support teams.  Multiagent systems are capable of filtering information without any bias toward shared information over unshared information.  This conceptual model incorporates individual intelligent agents and MAS that monitor and actively interact with team members as an effort to address the unshared knowledge barrier, resulting in better team decision-making and problem solving outcomes. 

I presented this article during the conference that CGPublishers held this past January in Vancouver, Canada. The presentation slides from this presentation have already been made available on my blogpost MAS as Team Member - Presentation Slides. All of my presentation slides are also available at my slideshare page: www.slideshare.net/JohnTurner5/
