    Institutions offer the promise of a means to govern open systems, in particular open multi-agent systems. Research in logics, and subsequently tools, supports the specification, verification and enactment of institutions. Most effort to date has focussed on the design-time properties of institutions (either on the normative or the system level), such as whether a particular state of affairs is reachable or not from a given set of initial conditions. Such models are useful in forcing the designer to state their intentions precisely, and for testing (design) properties. However, we identify two problems in the direct utilization of event-based design-time models in the governance of live (running) systems: (i) over-specification of constraints on agent autonomy and (ii) generation of design-time model artefacts. In this paper we present a methodology to tackle these two problems and extract the run-time model from the design-time one. We demonstrate how to derive an event-based run-time model of institutions that can be incorporated into the reasoning processes of autonomous BDI agents to realize practical norm-governed multi-agent systems.

  • A Satisficing Agreements Model

    Satisficing, the concept proposed by Herbert Simon, as an approach to reaching agreements is little explored. We propose a model for satisficing agreement reaching for an adaptive collaborative group of agents. The group consists of one human agent familiar with the problem and arbitrarily many artificial agents. Our model raises to the team level the recognition-primed decision model constructed in the field of cognitive decision-making by using social choice for reaching group opinions. View full abstract»

  • Supporting Agent Systems in the Programming Language

    Agent-oriented methodologies emphasize organisational concepts, which give structure to large agent systems. Organisational frameworks, however, put an extra burden on developers, who need to master both an agent-oriented programming language and the framework itself. We believe that the organisation of agent systems should be directly supported by features of the programming language. In this paper we propose three such language features: algebraic data types, roles, and sessions. They are inspired by functional programming languages and by session types. How they fit together in the context of agent-oriented programming is new. View full abstract»

  • Implementing Norms?

    Normative logics offer descriptions on expected behavior of agents inside a system. Norm implementation in MAS is rarely discussed and in practice, introducing norms triggers indirect impacts on the behavior of agents. In order to obtain some experience, we implemented OperettA norms using 2APL agents in a firefighter simulation. In this article, we propose a comprehensive overview of the issues encountered when implementing the different norm aspects in agents. View full abstract»
