Self-Organization in Multi-Agent Systems

Giovanna Di Marzo Serugendo, Marie-Pierre Gleizes, Anthony Karageorgos

This paper is the synthesis of joint work realised in a Technical Forum Group within the AgentLink III NoE framework which elaborated on issues concerning self-organisation and emergence in Multi-Agent Systems. The work concluded on a common definition of the concepts of self- organisation and emergence in MAS and the associated properties and characteristics, and it elaborated towards an approach for selecting self-organisation mechanisms using a number of selected reference case studies and a set of evaluation criteria.
