The development of (internet) agents is often a tedious and error-prone task resulting in poorly reusable designs, since both the internal computation of the agent as well as the coordination support are developed in an ad hoc fashion. To improve the process of agent-oriented software development, we propose an agent design method that imposes the separation of internal computation from coordination aspects. This method comprises two dimensions: a design formalism and an agent design process.doi:10.1145/967900.967996 dblp:conf/sac/JanssensSHV04 fatcat:otihyzv4q5fzvl2jdwq64zv7di
