Open multiagent systems (MAS) typically require the participating agents to comply with system-level rules, or norms, and may punish non-compliance. An interesting challenge for designers of such systems is how to provide for dynamic, run-time allocation of norms. In this article, we present a novel, framework-independent approach enabling a norm(More)
Multi-agent computational systems are systems of multiple, interacting software entities. For many such systems, the concepts of organization and roles provide a useful way to structure the activities of agents and of the system, and thus provide a means to structure the design and engineering of these systems. Accordingly, most architectures and frameworks(More)
In aviation industry, considering more freedom in the selection and modification of flight paths during flight time is a new challenge, which is known as free flight. The free flight concept alters the current centralized and command-control airspace system (between air traffic controllers and pilots) to a distributed system that allows pilots choose their(More)
The future management of air traffic allows aircraft choosing their own velocities, altitudes and directions in real time. In aviation industry, this possibility is known as “free flight”. One of the most important issues in the free flight method is conflict detection and resolution problem. In successful free flight, conflicts while maintaining(More)
The current air traffic management systems are not able to manage the enormous capacities of air traffic perfectly and have not sufficient capability to service different types of flights. Free flight is a new concept presented potentially to solve problems in the current air traffic management system. The free flight concept changes the current centralized(More)
Developing ontologies in many different domain areas has led to a huge amount of distributed information. On one hand, correlating this distributed information seems so worthwhile for providing additional information and reusing ontologies. On the other hand, keeping ontologies in small modules would be helpful for maintaining and managing ontologies.(More)
