Logic-Based Electronic Institutions

Wamberto Vasconcelos

We propose a logic-based rendition of electronic institutions -- these are means to specify open agent organisations. We employ a simple notation based on first-order logic and set theory to represent an expressive class of electronic institutions. We also provide a formal semantics to our constructs and present a distributed implementation of a platform to enact electronic institutions specified in our formalism.
