A Research Agenda for Multi-Agent Protocol Research

David Robertson

A focus of the research of the SSP group is the lightweight coordination calculus which is used as a way of specifying how multi-agent systems may interact.  One of the nice things about this research is that we have been able, with the same calculus, to cover issues of concern across traditionally distinct communities in agency, semantic web and grid systems.  I shall summarise where we are in this attempt to provide a more unified view of coordination and guess where our targets in the coming year may be.
