Interaction is a subject widely investigated in multi-agent systems (MASs), but some issues are still open. While most of current approaches of interaction in MAS just consider the interaction between agents, some problems are better modeled when the MAS is composed of agents, environment, interaction, and organization. In our approach, we integrate the interaction with the other MAS components, like the organization and the environment, keeping it as a first class abstraction. In this paper we… 

Integrating interaction with agents, environment, and organisation in JaCaMo

Interaction is a subject widely investigated in multi-agent systems MASs, but some issues are still open. While most of current approaches of interaction in MAS just consider the interaction among

Commitment-based Agent Interaction in JaCaMo+

TLDR
This work presents the JaCaMo+ framework for programming multiagent systems (MAS), where agents interact thanks to commitment-based interaction protocols, and explains how to use the framework to program interacting agents by using the Netbill protocol as running example and the Gold Miners scenario as a more complex programming example.

Application Framework with Abstractions for Protocol and Agent Role

TLDR
In multi-agent systems, agents interact by sending and receiving messages and the actual sequences of message form interaction structures between agents support these interaction structures: the development process becomes efficient and flexible—and the description becomes understandable.

Leveraging commitments and goals in agent interaction

TLDR
This paper proposes to model interaction protocols in terms of goals and commitments, and shows how such a formalization promotes a deliberative process inside the agents, and takes a software engineering perspective.

Exploiting Social Commitments in Programming Agent Interaction

TLDR
This paper proposes to model interaction protocols in terms of goals and commitments, and shows how such a formalization promotes a deliberative process inside the agents.

MAS4SSP: A Multi-Agent Reference Architecture for the configuration and monitoring of Small Series Production lines

TLDR
A new Multi-Agent Reference Architecture for the configuration and monitoring the Small Series Production lines (MAS4SSP) is presented, based on a unified, synergic and high level of abstraction solution using as reference model JaCaMo framework, which follows the Multi- agent Oriented Programming (MAOP).

Model-driven engineering of multi-agent systems based on ontologies

TLDR
This work investigates how to apply ontologies for agentoriented software engineering by presenting a new modelling approach where multiagent systems are designed using the proposed OntoMAS ontology and describing techniques to help programmers bring their concepts into code and also generate code automatically from instantiated ontology models.

Empowering Agent Coordination with Social Engagement

TLDR
This paper envisage social engagements as first-class resources that agents exploit in their deliberative cycle, and proposes to realize them as artifacts that agents create and manipulate along the interaction, and that drive the interaction itself.

A framework for reasoning and dialogue in multi-agent systems using argumentation schemes

TLDR
This thesis investigates how argumentation schemes can be represented in multi-agent systems, and how agents can instantiate those reasoning patterns in order to reason and communicate and proposes an approach whereby agents are able to exchange shorter messages when engaging in dialogues by omitting information that is common knowledge.

A Multiagent-Based Tool for the Simulation of Social Production andManagement Processes of Urban Ecosystems : A Case Study of San Jerónimo Vegetable Garden – Seville , Spain

TLDR
A MAS-based simulation tool developed in the JaCaMo framework is presented, conceived a 5-dimensional BDI-like agent social system composed of the agents’ population, the social organization, the environment, the interactional / communication and the regulatory structures.

A Unified Interaction Model with Agent , Organization , and Environment

TLDR
This paper proposes an interaction model that considers the environment, organization, and agents, and shows how to integrate this model into a multi-agent platform.

FROM INTERACTIONS TO COLLECTIVE BEHAVIOUR IN AGENT-BASED SYSTEMS

TLDR
The MAGMA approach to multi-agent systems is presented, including a proposal of an integrative environment based upon the decomposition between agents, environments, interactions, and organisations, and an Interaction Language associated with Interaction Protocols is proposed.

Indirect Interaction in Environments for Multi-agent Systems

TLDR
This paper defines classes of interaction (sequential and multi-agent, direct and indirect) and environments (physical and virtual, persistent and amnesic, dynamic and static) to provide an underpinning for proper acknowledgement of the roles of MAS environments and for powerful MAS design techniques that use indirect interaction.

Interaction-Oriented Agent Simulations: From Theory to Implementation

TLDR
A method and an architecture where interactions are reified regardless of agents are proposed in order to obtain a complete interaction-oriented design process for simulations, and helps programmers to build simulations with a large number of different behaviors at the same time, especially in the context of large-scale simulations.

Agent-environment interaction in a multi-agent system: a formal model

TLDR
A formal-language model for explicitly formalizing agent-environment interaction in a multi-agent systems (MAS) framework: Conversational Grammar Systems, which offers a model with a high degree of flexibility.

BRAIN: A Framework for Flexible Role-Based Interactions in Multiagent Systems

TLDR
The BRAIN framework is proposed, which aims at supporting the different phases of the development of interactions in agent-based applications, relying on the concept of role to model agent interactions.

IOM/T: an interaction description language for multi-agent systems

TLDR
This paper analyzes language functionalities for implementing interactions in multi-agent systems and proposes a new interaction description language IOM/T, which would become easy to implement based on design using Iom/T.

An Interaction-Oriented Agent Framework for Open Environments

TLDR
This work proposes to represent explicitly not only the agents but also the computational environment in terms of rules, conventions, resources, tools, and services, that are functional to the coordination and cooperation of the agents.

Artifacts in the A&A meta-model for multi-agent systems

TLDR
The notions of artifact in the A&A meta-model are defined, how it affects the notion of intelligence in MAS is discussed, and its application to a number of agent-related research fields are shown.

Using Constraints and Process Algebra for Specification of First-Class Agent Interaction Protocols

TLDR
This paper presents a formal language for specification of agent interaction protocols as first-class entities, called RASA, which, in addition to specifying the order of messages using a process algebra, also allows designers to specify the rules and consequences of protocols using constraints.
