COST Action IC0801: Agreement Technologies

We participate in the European project - COST Action IC0801 on Agreement Technologies (COST-AT). Agreement Technologies (AT) refer to computer systems in which autonomous software agents negotiate with one another, typically on behalf of humans, in order to come to mutually acceptable agreements. This Action aims at coordinating national efforts on a new paradigm for next generation distributed systems, based on the concept of agreement between computational agents. An entity may choose whether to fulfil an agreement or not, and it should fulfil it when there is an obligation to do so derived from the standing agreements. Autonomy, interaction, mobility and openness are the characteristics that the paradigm will cover from a theoretical and practical perspective.
