A Generic E-Institution for Modelling Multi-Agent Scenarios

Virginia Brilhante

One of the current tasks of the SLIE project is to put its experimental framework for MAS design to the test on large-scale, real-world scenarios. To this end we've been working on a Breast Cancer Referral and Diagnosis model in cooperation with CR-UK. During a recent meeting with these folk it became apparent that we would be better off with some form of generic model instead, flexible enough to be instantiated to different specific scenarios (healthcare, business, auction markets, etc). I'll talk about the ideas underway on this generic model which involve what we are calling a 'Client-Server Dynamic Lightweight E-Institution'.
