Towards an engineering of multi-agent eco-systems

Khan A. Basit, Mihhail Matskin
2010 4th IEEE International Conference on Digital Ecosystems and Technologies  
In this paper we present an approach for engineering multi-agent systems, which considers multi-agent systems as digital ecologies.  ...  Different approaches for engineering multi-agent systems have been proposed over time. However, there is a lack of attention towards the social aspects of multi-agent systems.  ...  We consider negotiation and coordination as the vital aspects of any activity in multi-agent systems. This is depicted in figure 3 .  ...
