Territoriality and the European infrastructure system [chapter]

2021 Integrating Europe's Infrastructure Networks  
Such strategies limit state discretion through the pooling of specific activities where this is a more effective means of attaining territorial objectives through co-operation and co-ordination (Axline  ...  The creation and sustenance of such co-operative frameworks underpins the arguments of Van der Vleuten and Kaijser (2005) that -in many cases -co-ordinated supranational action is rendered unnecessary  ...

Emergent and Adaptive Systems of Systems

Eduardo Alonso, Michael Fairbank
2013 2013 IEEE International Conference on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics  
We propose to use control agents to enforce joint strategies, which solve problems arising from the unconstrained interaction of autonomous agents and where Nash equilibria are suboptimal.  ...  In essence, in the resulting systems new solutions emerge, forming Systems of Systems that can form hierarchies.  ...  This approach, called Joint Action Learners, is useful in the context of common-payoff games (aka team games or pure co-ordination games) in which agents that receive the same pay-off at each outcome co-operate  ...

A Model of Co-ordination Support for Unanticipated Situations [chapter]

S. Ossowski, A. García-Serrano
1996 Advanced IT Tools  
In this paper, we model a social mechanism from which dynamic workflow adaptation emerges: self-interested actors laterally co-ordinate their activities in order to restore a desired process functionality  ...  Finally, the architecture of an agent-based support system that assists flexible exception management is sketched.  ...  As all process instances are initially co-ordinated, the above concepts allow for functional co-operation to arise between actors: they do not co-operate deliberately to achieve the process functionality  ...

Modelling Agent Societies: Co-ordination Frameworks and Institutions [chapter]

Virginia Dignum, Frank Dignum
2001 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Through institutions, conventions and interaction patterns for the co-ordination of agents can be specified, monitored and managed.  ...  In this paper, we argue that multi-agent systems should be designed around organisational co-ordination frameworks that reflect the co-ordination structures of the particular organisation.  ...  In this individualistic perspective, co-ordination emerges from patterns of agent actions as result of interaction.  ...

Co-operation via conflicts in manufacturing systems [chapter]

M. Horváth, A. Márkus, J. Váncza
1999 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
A mechanism for co-operative problem formulation and solution is suggested; this mechanism is based on the use of the recollections of previous conflict cases.  ...  The paper discusses how conflicts that emerge necessarily between various agents in a manufacturing system can be exploited in favour of the whole system.  ...  There is a common understanding that members of any social organisation (groups, teams, companies, corporations) have some social knowledge (or corporate memory) that enables them to co-ordinate their  ...

Knowledge organisation and govern-for-flexibility in manufacturing [chapter]

R. C. Michelini, G. L. Kovács
1999 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
The issues of co-ordinated controland-management of shop-floor operations are identified in section 4, for upgrading the manufacturing efficiency through govern-for-flexibility strategies, fully enabling  ...  In this paper, we investigate co-operative knowledge processing as an opportunity for increasing the capabilities of computer-integrated manufacturing in the presence of varying product-mixes.  ...  The possibilities of co-ordination, on-process and in real time (while the concurrent manufacturing material and information flows evolve), between control and management have great relevance in view of  ...

Building up an innovation region through cooperative experiences

Amaia Agirre, Iosu Lizarralde, Rafael Altuna Erle, Hervé Grellier
2009 Pôle Sud  
Based on these ideas we describe the Mondragon Cooperative Experiencie (MCE) as an example of a project that has and keeps maintaining a regional endogenous development model, following the social capital  ...  We also present ideas that rule a business management model in agreement with the principles of complexity and coherent with cooperative identity.  ...  the co-emergences of innovation through the connectivity, interaction between different entities.  ...

Optimal Performance in Means-Ends Activities: On the Emergence of Self-Other/World Differentiation in Infancy

and the consolidation of the self as agent.  ...  We know little about the role of background positive affectivity and flow experiences in early development concerning means-ends activities and their possible contribution regarding symbolic functioning  ...  At the same time, the aspect that is really not well highlighted is that the evolving in time, mirroring structure of flow activities (the dynamic co-ordination and co-regulation of the person and the  ...

Routines and incentives: the role of communities in the firm

P. Cohendet
2003 Industrial and Corporate Change  
That is, they try to keep the routine under control. (ibid.: 112) This aspect of routines is essential, because routines also play an explicit or implicit role as co-ordination mechanisms.  ...  Along these lines, we show that the analysis of the localization of routines in the organization has important consequences for our understanding of the specific dimensions of routines (cognitive, co-ordination  ...  Acknowledgements A first version of this paper was prepared for the Nelson and Winter Conference, Aalborg, 12-15 June 2001, organized by DRUID.  ...

Thinking in action

Stephen Cowley, Frédéric Vallée-Tourangeau
2010 AI & Society: The Journal of Human-Centred Systems and Machine Intelligence  
To integrate the relevant events, an agent or agents depend on action (or interaction). Decisions thus emerge in the cognitive dynamics of brain, body and world.  ...  The term refers to a reciprocal affective neuro-muscular dynamical flow and muscle tension felt between an agent and the world (or other agents): anticipatory dynamics can be experienced through both direct  ...

Exploring the brain basis of joint action: Co-ordination of actions, goals and intentions

Roger D. Newman-Norlund, Matthijs L. Noordzij, Ruud G. J. Meulenbroek, Harold Bekkering
2007 Social Neuroscience  
Humans are frequently confronted with goal-directed tasks that can not be accomplished alone, or that benefit from co-operation with other agents.  ...  The relatively new field of social cognitive neuroscience seeks to characterize functional neuroanatomical systems either specifically or preferentially engaged during such joint-action tasks.  ...  correspond nicely to co-ordination of actions and co-ordination of intentions, respectively.  ...

Co-operation and Self-Organization

Christian Fuchs
1970 tripleC: Communication, Capitalism & Critique  
Co-operation in a very weak sense means coaction and takes place permanently in re-creative systems: two or more actors act together in a co-ordinated manner so that a new emergent property emerges.  ...  On upper hierarchical systemic levels there are additional, emergent properties of co-operation, co-operation evolves dialectically. The focus of this paper is human cooperation.  ...  Co-action and Co-operation in Society I first want to point of a broad understanding of co-operation as co-action. Social information emerges by co-actions.  ...
