The domain of intelligent creatures, systems and entities is suffering today profound changes, and the pace of more than a hundred meetings (congresses, conferences, workshops) per year shows there is a very large community of interest, eager of innovations and creativity. There is now no unanimity and homogeneity of the crowd, no convergence on what concerns scientific or technological goals, and recent surveys offer us strange results about the desires of industry and academy. However…

Intelligent agents: theory and practice
TLDR
The aim in this paper is to point the reader at what they perceive to be the most important theoretical and practical issues associated with the design and construction of intelligent agents.
Real-time reasoning: the monitoring and control of spacecraft systems
TLDR
The application the procedural reasoning system (PRS) to the handling of malfunctions in the reaction control system of NASAs space shuttle is studied and it is shown how PRS manages to combine both goal-directed reasoning and the ability to react rapidly to unanticipated changes in its environment.
Engineering Societies in the Agents World II
TLDR
It is argued that whereas open societies supports openness and flexibility, closed societies support stability and trustfulness, and two classes of societies are suggested that better balance the trade-off between these aspects.
A Hybrid Approach to Teamwork
In the aftermath of a large-scale disaster, agents’ decisions derive from self-interested (e.g. survival), common-good (e.g. victims’ rescue) and teamwork (e.g. fire extinction) motivations. However,
Semantical Concepts for a Formal Structural Dynamics of Situated Multiagent Systems
TLDR
This paper introduces semantical concepts to support a formal structural dynamics of situated multiagent systems and illustrates the proposed approach to structural dynamics by introducing a small set of operational rules for an exchange value-based dynamics of organizational links.
A Logic of Situated Resource-Bounded Agents
TLDR
A logic, OBA, is introduced for describing the observations, beliefs, goals and actions of simple agents, and it is shown that OBA is complete, decidable and has an efficient model checking procedure, allowing properties of agents specified in OBA to be verified using standard theorem proving or model checking techniques.
Measuring Complexity of Multi-agent Simulations - An Attempt Using Metrics
TLDR
Metrics for measuring properties of agent-based simulations for finally being able to characterize the complexities involved in developing such a model are introduced.
Measuring Complexity of Multi-agent Simulations – An Attempt Using Metrics
TLDR
Metrics for measuring properties of agent-based simulations for finally being able to characterize the complexities involved in developing such a model are introduced.
A Common Basis for Agent Organisation in BDI Languages
TLDR
This paper aims to provide a unifying framework for the core aspects of agent organisation, covering groups, teams and roles, as well as organisations, by describing a simple organisational mechanism derived from the MetateM programming language.
Extending the MaSE Methodology for the Development of Embedded Real-Time Systems
TLDR
Concepts that extend the Multi-agent Systems Engineering (MaSE) methodology for the development of agent-oriented embedded real-time systems are presented and integrated in the traditional engineering process of MasE and evaluated by applying the extended process to theDevelopment of a flexible agent- oriented embedded system for the control of an elevator model.
