Researches on Ambient Intelligent and Ubiquitous Computing using wireless technologies have increased in the last years. In this work, we review several scenarios to define a multi-agent architecture that sup-port the information needs of these new technologies, for heterogeneous domain. Our contribution con-sists of designing in a methodological way a Context Aware System (involving location services) using agents that can be used in very different domains. We describe all the steps followed
more » ... the design of the agent system. We apply a hybridizing methodology between GAIA and AUML. Additionally we pro-pose a way to compare different agent architectures for Context Aware System using agent interactions. So, in this paper, we describe the assignment of weight values to agents interaction in two different MAS architectures for Context Aware problems solving different scenarios inspired in FIPA standard negotia-tion protocols.
