Supporting heterogeneous agent mobility with ALAS

Dejan Mitrovic, Mirjana Ivanovic, Zoran Budimac, Milan Vidakovic
2012 Computer Science and Information Systems  
With the main goal of providing an effective solution to the heterogeneous agent mobility problem, a novel agent-oriented programming language, named ALAS, is proposed.  ...  The design of the ALAS platform and an experiment presented in this paper will show that an agent written in ALAS is able to work in truly heterogeneous networks of multi-agent systems.  ...  But, most importantly, the logical foundation and highly-abstracted programming constructs used by this family of languages might prove to be their greatest weakness.  ...
