Multiagent systems with workflows

J.M. Vidal, P. Buhler, C. Stahl
2004 IEEE Internet Computing  
Industry wants to capitalize on Web service technology to automate business processes via centralized workflow enactment. Researchers are interested in the dynamic composition of Web services.  ...  Multiagent Systems with Workflows Looking further into the future, we foresee systems veering increasingly toward the adaptive end of the spectrum.  ...  In these workflow-based multiagent systems, the service providers are agents themselves; they therefore acquire the full proactive, autonomous, and selfish characteristics that we normally associate with  ...

Multiagent systems for workflow

Munindar P. Singh, Michael N. Huhns
1999 International Journal of Intelligent Systems in Accounting, Finance & Management  
We consider interaction-oriented programming (IOP), an approach to software engineering based on multiagent systems that we have been developing.  ...  To a large extent, this problem arises because of the rigidity of current technology, which does not accord well with the complex, heterogeneous, dynamic environments in which workflows are applied.  ...  Parts of Section 2 were presented at the ECAI Workshop on Learning in Distributed Artificial Intelligence Systems held in Budapest in August 1996, and parts of Section 3 in the 2nd International Workshop  ...

Towards Adaptive Workflow Enactment Using Multiagent Systems

Paul A. Buhler, Jos� M. Vidal
2005 Journal of Special Topics in Information Technology and Management  
We propose that workflow description languages and their associated design tools can be used to specify a multiagent system.  ...  We firmly believe that the historic trajectory of software development paradigms and IT advancements will establish multiagent systems as the workflow enactment mechanism of the future.  ...  Given this fact, is the concept of using multiagent systems for workflow enactment still viable?  ...

A formal compositional model of multiagent interaction

Sea Ling, Seng Wai Loke
2003 Proceedings of the second international joint conference on Autonomous agents and multiagent systems - AAMAS '03  
Interaction protocols for multiagent systems have been described diagrammatically in an extension of UML called AUML (Agent UML).  ...  We contend that compositionality is useful since multiagent systems and their interactions are inherently modular, and so that mission-critical parts of a system can be analysed separately.  ...  INTRODUCTION In a multiagent system, agents communicate with each other via some interaction protocol.  ...

Infrastructures for the environment of multiagent systems

Mirko Viroli, Tom Holvoet, Alessandro Ricci, Kurt Schelfthout, Franco Zambonelli
2006 Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems  
We endorse a general viewpoint where the environment of a multiagent system is seen as a set of basic bricks we call environment abstractions, which (i) provide agents with services useful for achieving  ...  Accordingly, we focus the survey on the opportunities that environment infrastructures provide to system designers when developing multiagent applications.  ...  Figure 2 shows a Workflow Management System as a MAS application, with TuCSoN used at the middleware layer.  ...
