Special Issue: Coordination and Knowledge Engineering

<div>By adopting a structured knowledge-level approach, coordination knowledgecan be ascribed to groups (societies) of system components (agents) as a whole, rather than to individuals, in order to effectively rationalise complex patterns of interaction within intelligent (multi-agent) systems. Be it either explicitly represented at the symbol-level or hard-coded within speci&#64257;c coordination algorithms, coordination knowledge is instrumented by a wide and heterogeneous variety of coordination models, abstractions and technologies. Coordination knowledge engineering is then about eliciting, modelling and instrumenting coordination knowledge in a principled and effective manner. </div>

<div>In this introductory article, we brie&#64258;y review two well-known frameworks to conceptualise coordination, then we discuss different dimensions along which coordination models can be classi&#64257;ed, and analyse their impact on the design of coordination mechanisms and their supporting coordination knowledge. Finally, we sketch our view on coordination knowledge engineering and introduce the
different contributions to this special issue along this line. </div>
