2000 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The paper focuses on the design of multiagent systems and argues that traditional approaches fall short when dealing with complex multiagent systems. On this basis, this paper shows how an approach based on coordination models can help in the design of multiagent systems. A simple example in the area of conference management is assumed as a case study to clarify the concepts expressed.
