Advanced Coordination Techniques: Experiments with TuCSoN and ReSpecT

   page       attach   

Distributed systems are more about interaction than computation: thus, they need coordination abstractions and techniques for managing the associated space of interaction.
Inspired to the archetypal Linda model, TuCSoN is a coordination model and technology providing tuple-based coordination services to (mobile) software agents through the notion of tuple centre—that is, a programmable tuple space. ReSpecT is a coordination language enabling run-time programmability of TuCSoN tuple centres—that is, of the coordination primitives and laws enabling and constraining interaction.
In this seminar TuCSoN and ReSpecT are used as the reference models and technologies for experimenting advanced coordination techniques for distributed and mobile programming of intelligent and pervasive multi-agent systems.
