Distributed agent environments in the Ambient Event Calculus

Stefano Bromuri, Kostas Stathis
2009 Proceedings of the Third ACM International Conference on Distributed Event-Based Systems - DEBS '09  
We study the development of distributed agent environments as distributed event-based systems specified in the Ambient Event Calculus (AEC).  ...  Interactions between these entities are specified in terms of events that represent actions executed by agents on objects and other agents in the environment.  ...  This work was partially supported by the IST-FP6-035200 ArguGRID project.  ...

Towards a Distributed Plan Execution Monitoring Framework

Yosr Jarraya, Sujoy Ray, Andrei Soeanu, Mourad Debbabi, Mohamad Allouche, Jean Berger
2013 Procedia Computer Science  
In this paper, we elaborate on a distributed monitoring calculus framework that allows specifying and executing plans for multi-agent systems in a distributed environment.  ...  Distributed monitoring is challenging yet essential in order to address scalability issues observed in the context of large-scale plan execution.  ...  In a distributed system, agents evolve in independent contexts (that may overlap). We associate with each ambient A its perceived subset of the environment that we denote by ε@A.  ...

A formalism for hierarchical mobile agents

Satoh
2000 Proceedings International Symposium on Software Engineering for Parallel and Distributed Systems PDSE-99  
To demonstrate the utility of the calculus, we constructed a practical mobile agent system whose agents can be naturally and strictly specified and verified in the calculus.  ...  The system also offers a security mechanism for mobile agents by using well-defined properties of the calculus. *  ...  The ambient calculus [5] allows mobile agents (called ambients in the calculus) to contain other agents and to move as a whole with all its subcomponents.  ...

An Intelligence-Aware Process Calculus for Multi-Agent System Modeling

Raheel Ahmad, Shahram Rahimi, Bidyut Gupta
2007 2007 International Conference on Integration of Knowledge Intensive Multi-Agent Systems  
In this paper we propose an agent modeling language named CAML that provides a comprehensive frameworkfor representing all relevant aspects of a multiagent system: specially, its configuration and the  ...  reasoning abilities of its constituent agents.  ...  A multi-agent system then is a recognized collection of such agents that coexist and interact in an environment where the overall control and information is generally distributed (decentralized).  ...

Join Patterns for Concurrent Agents (position paper)

Alex Muscar
2013 Scalable Computing : Practice and Experience  
In this paper we take a look at the possibility of combining elements from the Join Calculus, namely join patterns with an AOP programming language, in our case Jason.  ...  Even though the Agent Oriented Programming (AOP) paradigm has been introduced over 20 years ago, the following is still modest.  ...  An agent is driven forward by a reasoning cycle in which the agent: (i) perceives the environment, and updates its beliefs, (ii) receives messages, (iii) selects an event and the plans that can handle  ...
