A Multi-Agent System (MAS) is confronted to the tremendous problem of the coordination and cooperation of the autonomous agents.
During this presentation, I will present one possible answer to this problem with the use of explicit normative organization models applied to goal directed agents.
MAS that explicitly represents its organization normally focuses either on the functioning or the structure of this organization. However, addressing both aspects is a prolific approach when one wants to design a MAS organization.
The problem is to define these aspects in such a way that they can be both assembled in a single coherent specification while preserving the autonomy of the agents and favoring the dynamic reorganization of the MAS itself.
I will present the different researches done in our group that intend to be a step in this direction with the MOISE+ organization model.
