  • Progress in software engineering has been made through the development of natural high-level abstractions with which to model and develop complex systems. The abstraction and modelling of agent technology play
    an important role in distributed systems. Multi-Agent System paradigm
    introduces a number of new abstractions when compared to more
    traditional systems. They may be used by software developers to more
    naturally understand, model and develop an important class of complex
    distributed systems. Accordingly new analysis and design methodologies
    are needed to effectively engineer such systems. In this paper, we
    propose the analysis and design of a multi-agent system for the
    provisioning of context-aware services in an ambient intelligence
    domain: an airport.
