Using Argumentative Agents to Manage Communities of Web Services

Jamal Bentahar, Zakaria Maamar, Djamal Benslimane, Philippe Thiran
2007 21st International Conference on Advanced Information Networking and Applications Workshops (AINAW'07)  
This framework shows how software agents that are able to argue, negotiate, and reason about Web services can be used to specify these Web services and to manage their respective communities.  ...  The use of what we call argumentative agents helps Web services in being better organized within communities and in achieving the goals for which they are conceived.  ...  Hereafter we define the concepts that will be used in the framework for managing communities of Web services (⊢ stands for classical inference): IV. ARGUMENTATIVE AGENTS FOR WEB SERVICES A.  ...
