Research topic: Multi-Agent Systems


Agent-oriented software engineering, Rapid prototyping, Logic-based software agents


Rapid prototyping of multi-agent systems with logic programming techniques:

Integration and reusing of different kinds of information and software tools is a pressing necessity that more and more complex applications have to cope with. This fact and the distributed nature of many applications made it very appealing to use multi-agent technology. However, agent-based software still lacks well founded development methodologies, thus rapid prototyping and executable specifications could be very important for the realization of these applications.

We are investigating how Logic Programming and Computational Logic in general can be exploited to realize low-cost executable prototypes of multi-agent systems that integrate different kinds of legacy software into more complex applications. The prototyping system we have developed is called CaseLP (Complex Application Specification Environment based on Logic Programming).
