- A meta-model for intelligent adaptive multi-agent systems in open environments
- Juan, Thomas; Sterling, Leon
- In this paper, we introduce the ROADMAP meta-model, designed to describe intelligent adaptive multi-agent systems in open environments. The meta-model captures our understanding of the properties of such systems and our perspective on organizational concepts such as roles. It defines agent constructs such as agents and roles, and their inter-relationships such as aggregation, in a way that best facilitates the development of intelligent adaptive systems in open environments. We intend to use the meta-model for knowledge sharing. We expect developers of AOSE methodologies, tools, programming languages and frameworks to benefit from understanding the design and structure of the ROADMAP meta-model. By adopting the meta-model, the resulting methodologies, tools and languages should inherit its desirable characteristics and better support the development of intelligent adaptive systems in open environments.
