Towards a Formal Conceptualization of Organizational Design Techniques for Large Scale Multi Agent Systems

Markus Schatten, Petra Grd, Mladen Konecki, Robert Kudelić
2014 Procedia Technology - Elsevier  
These embedded computers are increasingly autonomous and connected, and can thus be modeled as agents within multi-agent systems (MAS).  ...  However given the current rate of development in electronics, we will soon have to manage large scale MAS (LSMAS) where millions of agents exist, collaborate and compete with each other.  ...  While modern organizations cope with these requirements using various organizational methods, most large-scale multi-agent (LSMAS) proposals and solutions engage in engineering techniques.  ...
