14:30-15:00  Kuldar Taveter: The art of agent-oriented modelling. Slides

15:00-15:15  Estefania Argente Villaplana: VOM - a Service-Oriented Open MAS meta-model. Slides

A Service-oriented Open Multi-Agent System (SOMAS) is a multi-agent system in which the computing model is based on well-defined, open, loosely-coupled service interfaces, such as Web services. We have defined a Service-Oriented Open MAS meta-model, named Virtual Organization Model (VOM), aimed at modeling open societies in which heterogeneous and autonomous agents work together, focused on the integration of both Web Services and MAS technologies.

15:15-15:30  Olivier Boissier: The MOISE Framework. Slides

The MOISE Framework is an organisation-oriented programming platform for developing normative multi-agent organisations. It is based on an organisation modeling language supported by an artifact-based organisation management platform. This framework, currently under development, supports the execution of heterogeneous agent architectures (Jason, JaDeX, …) and an artifact-based environment (Cartago platfom).

15:30-15:45  Holger Billhardt: Organisational metamodels and organisational mechanisms. Universidad Rey Juan Carlos. Slides
