Mobile agents are increasingly play significant role in distributed information systems. This article addresses the problem that happens when a mobile agent leaves a group and wants to join another one. Therefore, it has to follow different polices which may have conflicts with its own requirements. The paper studies the problem from cooperative management point of view and goes to the technological level. The multi-disciplinary nature of this problem makes the conceptualization beneficial to build a mutual understanding of the situation and recognize policy conflicts. Our research question specifies how to recognize conflicts between requirements of the agent and policies of locations, where it recently has moved. The paper discusses about a proposed research to build a meta-model for conceptual modeling of this situation that should cover agency, ldquomobility, ldquocooperationrdquo, and ldquopoliciesrdquo.
