Blending Event-Based and Multi-Agent Systems around Coordination Abstractions

Andrea Omicini, Giancarlo Fortino, Stefano Mariani
While event-based architectural style has become prevalent for large-scale distributed applications, multi-agent systems seemingly provide the most viable abstractions to deal with complex distributed systems. In this position paper we discuss the role of coordination abstractions as a basic brick for a unifying conceptual framework for agent-based and event-based systems, which could work as the foundation of a principled discipline for the engineering of complex software systems.
Keywords: multi-agent systems, event-based systems, coordination models, TuCSoN
