Virtual Enterprise Normative Framework Within Electronic Institutions
In this paper we identify requirements of Virtual Enterprise contracts, developing a normative framework for contract validation and enforcement, and describe the institution's role on the e-contracting life-cycle. Expand
Adaptive Deterrence Sanctions in a Normative Framework
We present an adaptive mechanism that enables a normative framework to change deterrence sanctions according to an agent population, in order to preclude agents from exploiting potential normative flaws. Expand
On Learning by Exchanging Advice
The emergence of Multiagent systems brought new challenges to the field of Machine Learning, as it did to many others. Expand
Multi-agent systems: which research for which applications
For sometime now agent-based and multi-agent systems (MASs) have attracted the interest of researchers far beyond traditional computer science and artificial intelligence (AI). Expand
Cooperative Learning Using Advice Exchange
This paper describes a technique that enables a heterogeneous group of Learning Agents (LAs) to improve its learning performance by exchanging advice. Expand
Contributions to an Electronic Institution supporting Virtual Enterprises' Life cycle
Electronic commerce competitiveness, due to market openness and dynamics, enabled the arising of new organizational structures, as it is the case with virtual enterprises. The virtual enterprise (VE)Expand
ANTE: Agreement Negotiation in Normative and Trust-Enabled Environments
The ANTE framework encompasses results of research efforts on three main agreement technology concepts, namely negotiation, normative environments and computational trust. Expand
An Electronic Market Architecture for the Formation of Virtual Enterprises
This paper proposes an Electronic Market system’s architecture together with a multi-criteria negotiation protocol for Virtual Enterprise formation. Expand
Electronic institutions for B2B: dynamic normative environments
The regulation of the activity of multiple autonomous entities represented in a multi-agent system, in environments with no central design (and thus with no cooperative assumption), is gaining much attention in the research community. Expand
A Multi-Agent Recommender System
A recommender system using agents with two different algorithms (associative rules and collaborative filtering) is described. Expand
