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)
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)

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)
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)
