Formalising Situatedness and Adaptation in Electronic Institutions [chapter]

Jordi Campos, Maite López-Sánchez, Juan Antonia Rodríguez-Aguilar, Marc Esteva
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper suggests a solution consisting of two EI extensions to incorporate situatedness and adaptation to the institution.  ...  Similarly to institutions in human societies, Electronic Institutions (EI) provide structured frameworks for Multi-Agent Systems (MAS) to regulate agents' interactions.  ...  Conclusions and Future work In this paper, we focus on dening adaptation and situatedness for Electronic Institutions (EI).  ...

Formal ReSpecT in the A&A Perspective

Andrea Omicini
2007 Electronical Notes in Theoretical Computer Science  
In particular, we take the ReSpecT language for programming the behaviour of tuple centres [15, 25] and its formal model [14] , and discuss its re-formulation in the A&A framework.  ...  Coordination models and languages have found a new course in the context of MAS (multiagent systems).  ...  This paper owes a lot to a number of brilliant people that have worked with me on ReSpecT in the last decade: mostly, Marco Venuti, Antonio Natali, Enrico Denti, and Alessandro Ricci.  ...
