Reorganisation and Self-organisation in Multi-Agent Systems

Abstract : In the last years, social and organisational aspects of agency have become a major issue in multi-agent systems' research. The conducted works may be structured along two main points of view: an agent-centred point of view (ACPV) and an organisation-centred point of view (OCPV). In both approaches the central notion of multi-agent organisation dynamic is considered. In ACPV, this notion leads to a kind of informal, bottom-up, emergent phenomena that we regroup under the general term of self-organisation. In OCPV, this notion gives birth to a huge set of works related to the reorganisation of the formal, top-down, pre-existent organisations that are installed in the MAS. In this paper, we propose to position these two approaches to build a comprehensive picture of organisation dynamic in multi-agent systems.
