Description:

This STMS visit is intended to help making the first connection with the Computing Technology - Artificial Intelligence in Polytechnic University of Valencia that is working on Multi-Agent Oriented Programming Technologies and Models.

The objective is to identify potential opportunities to pave the way for future collaboration between our respective institutions.
This initiative follows on from discussions we had with some of the host institution member’s within the COST AT forums and different Agent related Conferences.
These different discussions lead us to identify strong points of common interest (Organizations, Norms, Environment, Multi-Agent Oriented Programming). We plan to explore and compare the different approaches developed in each of the groups on multi-agent oriented programming platforms, on organisation-based reasoning methods and on the role of the environment in agreement technologies.

During this visit, our plan is to make progress our research by realizing the following steps:
- Present, discuss and identify cooperation possibilities about the different models and technologies related to Organisation Oriented Programming, Normative approaches
- Present, discuss and identify cooperation possibilities about the different models and technologies related to Multi-Agent Programming
- Set up collaboration (projects, exchange of students) with interested members of the host institution.

The visit provides an excellent opportunity for us to allow first meetings in order to set up a future collaboration that can subsequently be completed with remote interactions.
