Agents & Artifacts: A Meta-Model for Agent-Oriented Computing

Andrea Omicini
This course presents the conceptual foundations of the A&A (Agents & Artifacts) meta-model, and elaborates on its impact on the way in which MAS are conceived, designed and developed. After a short introduction on the "From Objects to Agents" revolution, MAS fundamental notions are first re-defined in terms of the A&A meta-model, then exploited to re-cast fundamental issues like agent intelligence, interaction, MAS infrastructures, agent-oriented software engineering (AOSE), agent-based simulation (ABS), self-* MAS.
