One of the most important tasks when developing multiagent systems (MAS) is to determine the overall organizational structure of the system. In this paper we present a service-oriented perspective on the organizational structure of MAS and we present modeling techniques and tools for supporting this perspective. We pursue a model-driven approach and a tight integration between various models on the one hand and between the models and the generated code on the other hand. In particular, we
more » ... e ontology modeling and organization structure modeling in a way that we can easily generate the initial content of agent knowledge bases in the form of FIPA semantic language (SL) fragments (depending on what positions the agents occupy in the context of the organizational structure). In addition, this allows the agents to reason about and to communicate about their organizational embedding using the same ontology.
