This paper proposes a model for group formation in elderly communities using Coalition Structure Generation Problem implemented by Genetic Algorithms. The model parameters are physical requirements, preferences and social relationships, being the model able to learn from each execution and improve the future configurations. The results show near-optimal solutions to all proposed scenarios, beating greatly the computational time of CPLEX. 


Simulating a Collective Intelligence Approach to Student Team Formation
This paper presents a computer-aided policy that facilitates the automatic generation of near optimal teams based on collective intelligence, coalition structure generation, and Bayesian learning and carried out simulations in hypothetic classroom scenarios that show that the policy is capable of converging towards the optimal solution.

A stable and efficient buyer coalition formation scheme for e-marketplaces
Simulation results show that, under most conditions, the proposed GroupBuyAuction scheme increases buyers' utility, and allows more buyers to obtain items compared to traditional group buying schemes, such as those used at existing commercial WWW sites.
Arbitrators in overlapping coalition formation games
A unified framework for the study of stability in the OCF setting is proposed, which encompasses the concepts considered in [4] as well as a wide variety of alternative stability concepts.

It is shown that a certain type of fraud which leads to an increase of individual profit can neither be prevented nor detected, but this comes at the expense of exponentially high computation costs for the deceiving agent.
A Group Buy Protocol based on Coalition Formation for Agent-mediated E-Commerce
A new group buy scheme for agent-mediated electronic markets is proposed with the concept of sequential decisionmaking for seller agents and buyer agents and a cooperation mechanism among seller agents based on exchange items in stock.
A Caregiver Support Platform within the Scope of an Ambient Assisted Living Ecosystem
This work considers a specific platform developed in the scope of AAL4ALL, called UserAccess, and the architecture of the platform and its role within the overall Aal4ALL concept, the implementation of theplatform, andThe available interfaces are presented.

The results demonstrated that leisure activities mediate the link between social relationships and health in these age groups, and perceptions of positive social relationships were associated with greater involvement in leisure activities, and greater involvement was associated with better health in older age.
The Physical Activity Scale for the Elderly (PASE) Questionnaire; Does It Predict Physical Health?
It is demonstrated that PASE scores cannot be used to predict healthy physical measures, although the relationships between PASE and WC could beused to encourage older adults to become more physically active.
