A Lightweight Method for Coordination of Agent Oriented Web Services

David Robertson

Large scale multi-agent systems and Web services that are expected automatically to solve problems collaboratively must have ways of understanding the dialogues in which they are engaged. This understanding must be possible in an asynchronous environment and it must allow agents to be engaged in many dialogues simultaneously. It should not require centralised control for dialogue coordination, nor should it require individual agents to adapt their knowledge or beliefs solely for the purposes of dialogue. We describe a means of achieving this with the aid of a lightweight protocol.
