To model organizational changes in cooperative but distributed problem solving environments, it is necessary to represent not only activities and knowledge concerning particular agents, but also the constraints for successful collaboration among agents, concerning mainly the availability of common knowledge and cooperative task accomplishment. The usability of such models mostly depends on their ability to describe communication events occurring in multiagent environments. To this end, the authors enhance a formal communication model with adaptation capabilities to capture organizational changes in cooperative problem solving environments. The model meets the appropriate level of abstraction not only for the specification of the communication among a dispersion set of agents, but also for concurrent common, but distributed knowledge, and related (a)synchronous events
