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, MAS development activities (including MAS analysis and agent knowledge modeling) and MAS run-time operation (including agent communication and(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)

Negotiation is typically the way in which real world multi-issue commercial contracts are resolved and signed. The automation of negotiation in the B2B context has the potential to revolutionise trade. Intelligent agents have been proposed as the software architecture for automating negotiation. Goals are important based on the notion from [4] that an agent(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)
