Context: A common distributed intelligent system architecture is Multi Agent Systems (MASs). Creating systems with this architecture has been recently supported by Agent Oriented Software Engineering (AOSE) methodologies. But two questions remain: how do we determine the suitability of a MAS implementation for a particular problem? And can this be(More)
Research Online is the open access institutional repository for the University of Wollongong. For further information contact the UOW Abstract Most existing agent-oriented methodologies ignore system extensibility, interoperability and reusability issues. Ontologies have been found to play a significant role in facilitating interoperability, reusability,(More)
Problem Solving Methods (PSM) are abstract structures that describe specific reasoning processes employed to solve a set of similar problems and have proved very effective at enhancing reuse and extensibility in developing knowledge-based systems. We envisage that off-the-shelf PSMs can similarly assist in the development of agent-oriented solutions using(More)

Much of the B2B real world commercial activities today require the resolution of multiple issues before a trade is agreed and contract signed. Negotiation is typically the way in which these multi-issue transactions are resolved. For B2B e-commerce, the automation of this negotiation for trade has the potential to revolutionise the way that business is(More)
