Interaction is a subject widely investigated in multi-agent systems (MASs), but some issues are still open. While most of current approaches of interaction in MAS just consider the interaction between agents, some problems are better modeled when the MAS is composed of agents, environment, interaction, and organization. In our approach, we integrate the interaction with the other MAS components, like the organization and the environment, keeping it as a first class abstraction. In this paper we
more » ... present a conceptual model for the interaction component, a programming language to specify the interaction, and how our approach was integrated in an MAS platform. The main result of this paper is the conception of the interaction as a first class abstraction considering an MAS composed of agents, environment, interaction, and organization.
