Research Plan

The project will be heavily focused on implementation and filling the gap between high level descriptions of possible agent systems and small projects working on a level of subsystems of non-existing large-scale systems. Work will proceed in three stages, the first one involving re-implementation of work introduced in [1] and [2]. The second stage will focus on developing and implementing negotiation and decision making strategies. In the final stage, ontologies will be introduced into the system.
