Working Group on Multiagent Platforms

This is the working website of the MAP-WG.


  • 2013-06-10: online Kick-off meeting, first goal: define a first set of 3 case studies to start the benchmarking process.


In continuation of the work initiated by JaCaMo combining three different multiagent technologies within the same framework, the objective of this working group is twofold:

  • First, to identify and compare the functional and application scopes of each of the considered multiagent platforms, to eventually identify their strengths and weaknesses.
  • In a second step, move towards convergence, even standardization, in the field of multi-agent platform to provide a comprehensive, coherent and up-to-date response to the needs/requirements of software industry in this domain.

It is clear that this initiative must be carried out in collaboration with the efforts to address the methodological process (see FIPA DPDF WG) and the modeling/CASE tools used in the previous phases of the software development process (during the analysis and design phases).

Examples of CASE tools:


Considered existing multiagent platforms

Case studies

mWater - Water Management SystemPDF
The purpose of mWater is to test and prove that Agreement Technologies can be successfully used in the construction of a prototype that will address the Water Rights Transfer problem. mWater will provide an efficient allocation of water resources based on a system of voluntary trade in water, which brings potentially large benefits to all parties involved. One implication of these complex requirements is the need for flexible on-demand negotiation, initiation, co-ordination, and supervision of various activities represented either through persons, or non-human actors (i.e., agents and services).
