# Construenda est CArtAgO: Toward an Infrastructure for Artifacts in MAS

Alessandro Ricci, Mirko Viroli, Andrea Omicini

Artifacts have been recently proposed as first-class abstractions to model and engineer general purpose computational environments for Multi-Agent Systems. In this paper, we first consider the role of infrastructures in supporting the artifact conceptual framework, discussing motivations and requirements, and then we propose an abstract model and architecture of a reference infrastructure for artifacts, here named CArtAgO.
