The Agent Coordination Context abstraction (ACC) has been recently introduced as a mean to model the environment and the agent-environment interaction in the context of Multi-Agent Systems (MASs). In this article we discuss how the ACC notion has been embedded in a MAS infrastructure, in terms of the new runtime structures and services. As a reference, we will take TuCSoN coordination infrastructure, which is extended with the ACC framework to integrate organisation and security support with coordination.
