Software Engineering for Large-scale Multi-Agent Systems: SELMAS'2002

Carlos Lucena, Alessandro Garcia, Andrea Omicini, Jaelson Castro, Franco Zambonelli
Objects and agents are abstractions that exhibit points of similarity, but the development of agent-based software poses other challenges to software engineering since software agents are inherently more complex entities. In addition, a large-scale multi-agent system needs to satisfy multiple stringent requirements such as reliability, security, interoperability, scalability, reusability, and maintainability. This workshop brought together researchers and practitioners to discuss the current state and future direction of research in software engineering for large-scale multi-agent systems. A particular interest was to understand those issues in the agent technology that difficult and/or improve the production of large-scale distributed systems.
