This paper is the synthesis of joint work realised in a technical forum group within the AgentLink III NoE framework, which elaborated on issues concerning self-organization and emergence in multi-agent systems (MAS). The work concluded on a common definition of the concepts of self-organization and emergence in MAS and the associated properties and characteristics. Also it developed towards an approach for selecting self-organization mechanisms using a number of selected reference case studies… Expand
Intermediary-Based Self-organizing Mechanism in Multi-agent Systems
TLDR
A novel self-organizing mechanism is proposed which enables some underloaded agents to act as the intermediary to perform the relation adaptation for the overloaded agents. Expand
Organization of Multi-Agent Systems: An Overview
TLDR
This chapter is dedicated to overview different aspects of what is called MAS Organization including its motivations, paradigms, models, and techniques adopted for statically or dynamically organizing agents in MAS. Expand
Self-Organizing Agent Coalitions in Distributed Multi-agent Systems
TLDR
This paper presents a short analytical summary of the concept of self-organization, and tries to correlate the key ideas involved in it with the experimental work on agent coalitions in a distributed environment. Expand
A Multi-environment Multi-agent Simulation Framework for Self-organizing Systems
TLDR
This framework provides higher abstractions and components to support the development of self-organizing systems with multiple environments, which can be situated or not and flexibility to evolve the framework with more complex ones. Expand
Self-Organization in Multi-Agent Systems Based on Examples of Modeling Economic Relationships between Agents
TLDR
The paper describes the worked-out MAS including the example of a production cycle and used economic rules, and reports some of recorded self-organization patterns and their dynamics over time in terms of their spatial arrangement or mutual relations. Expand
Cloning, resource exchange and relation adaptation: a self-organising multi-agent framework
TLDR
This framework synthesises the three principles of self-organisation, i.e., agent cloning/spawning, resource exchange and relation adaptation, so that an agent can autonomously generate new agents when it is overloaded, exchange resources with other agents if necessary, and adapt relations with other agent to achieve a better network structure.

A stepwise refinement-based development of self-organising multi-agent systems: application to the foraging ants
TLDR
A formal modelling for self-organising multi-agent systems SOMAS based on stepwise refinements, with the Event-B language and the temporal logic of actions TLA is proposed, which allows to develop this kind of systems in a more structured manner. Expand
Self-organisation in an Agent Network via Multiagent Q-Learning
TLDR
A decentralised self-organisation mechanism in an agent network to achieve efficient task allocation in the agent network via dynamically altering the structural relations among agents, i.e. changing the underlying network structure. Expand
A Stepwise Refinement Based Development of Self-Organizing Multi-Agent Systems: Application to the Foraging Ants
TLDR
A formal modeling for Self-Organizing Multi-Agent Systems (SOMAS) based on stepwise refinements, with the Event-B language and the Temporal Logic of Actions (TLA), to develop this kind of systems in a more structured manner is proposed. Expand
A Survey of Self-Organization Mechanisms in Multiagent Systems
TLDR
This paper surveys the literature over the last decades in the field of self-organizing multiagent systems and provides a survey of existing literature onSelf-organization mechanisms in multi agent systems to highlight the future work on key research issues. Expand
