Embodying Organisations in Multi-AgentWork Environments


Agents and Artifacts model extended with organisation promotes artifact based environments aimed at supporting multi agent coordination and goal oriented interactions and communication. Nevertheless, the use of artifacts for organisational purposes constrains agents to be aware of complex structures described in an organisational specification. Considering this requirement, we propose "organisational embodiment rules" as a programmable layer for building embodied organisational artifacts (EOA) through their binding to environment artifacts. EOAs are aimed at transparently interceding with the organisational structures, and at enabling possibly organisation-unaware agents to seamlessly play in organisations with no need to deal with low level primitives of an organisational specification. We propose a formal description along with examples enlightening benefits of the proposed approach with respect to related ones.
