Implementing Multi-Agent Systems: Languages, Frameworks, and Standards

Authors: Keith Decker, Tim Finin, Chris Manning, Munindar Singh, and Jan Treur

Book Title: Proceedings of the AAAI Workshop on Software Tools for Developing Agents

Date: July 26, 1998

Abstract: As multi-agent systems research nears the end of its second decade, researchers have moved beyond stand-alone, one-off systems and have begun to create the software infrastructure for quickly creating new, highly interoperable systems. However, the desire for seamless interoperability ("open" systems) brings with it the push to standardize on agent communication languages and related agent service facilities. Although a host of theoretical and practical controversies surround the specification of such standards, some shared, guiding principles have emerged.
