In this paper we address efficient decentralised coordination of cooperative multi-agent systems by taking into account the actual computation and communication capabilities of the agents. We consider coordination problems that can be framed as Distributed Constraint Optimisation Problems, and as such, are suitable to be deployed on large scale multi-agent(More)
The Internet has unleashed the capacity for planetary-scale collective problem solving (also known as crowdsourcing), with ever increasing successful examples. A key hypothesis behind crowdsourcing is that, at a critical mass of participation, it has the capacity not only to agglomerate and coordinate individual contributions from thousands of individuals,(More)
We present in this paper GRENAD, a Multi-Agent System based framework for the simulation and piloting of power-grids and particularly smart grids. Exploiting a component-based approach, it allows a flexible design of complex smart grid applications by providing a generic canvas where extensible, modular and reusable components, defined on the basis of their(More)
In this paper we address the problem of efficient decentralised coordination of cooperative multi-agent systems by taking into account the structure of the problem. We consider coordination problems that can be framed as Distributed Constraint Optimization Problems (DCOP).Graphical models such as junction trees are widely used in order to exploit the(More)
