By Nicoletta Fornara, Francesco Viganò, Macro Colombetti (auth.), Rogier M. van Eijk, Marc-Philippe Huget, Frank Dignum (eds.)

In this e-book, we current a suite of papers round the subject of agent com- nication. The communique among brokers has been one of many significant subject matters of analysis in multiagent structures. the present paintings can for that reason construct on a few earlier Workshops of which the court cases were released in past volumes during this sequence. the root of this assortment is shaped through the approved submissions of the Workshop on Agent verbal exchange held in c- junction with the AAMAS convention in July 2004 in ny. The workshop got 26 submissions of which 14 have been chosen for book during this v- ume. in addition to the top quality workshop papers we spotted that many papers on agent verbal exchange chanced on their option to the most convention. We made up our minds for that reason to ask a few authors to revise and expand their papers from this convention and to mix them with the workshop papers. We think that the present assortment includes a good and relatively entire assessment of the state-of-the-art during this zone of study and offers a very good indication of the subjects which are of significant curiosity in the intervening time. The papers can approximately be divided over the next ?ve topics: – social commitments – multiparty communique – content material languages – dialogues and conversations – speech acts even though those issues are after all now not jointly particular they point out a few major instructions of study. We hence have prepared the papers within the booklet based on the themes indicated above.

Identity State-Similarity. ι is the identity state-similarity function. That is, si [ι] sj if and only if si and sj are labeled by same set of propositions. ι(si ) = {sj |[si ] = [sj ]}. [ι] is reflexive, symmetric, and transitive. Creditor State-Similarity. As another state-similarity function, consider σ. Under σ, a state si is similar to a state sj if in the two states all the participants of the protocol have the same commitments being made towards them, regardless of which agent makes it. These states are similar under σ because, as described in Table 4, these states have propositions representing commitments that differ only in their creditors.

Motivation. The tradeoffs between execution and verification to be borne in mind while designing a protocol make protocol design a nontrivial undertaking. It requires human expertise and knowledge of the application domain. To reduce unnecessary effort and to prevent reinventing the wheel, designers should be able to create new protocols by refining or combining existing protocols whose properties are well understood. In such a situation, a sound theory of composition of protocols and a classification of protocols in a hierarchy backed by formal semantics would aid protocol designers and take from them some of the burden of ascertaining the properties of the protocols being designed.

As such, an utterance proposing the discharge of a social commitment (as indicated in ProposingStateDischarge below) would be one that contains a propose token attempting to delete an accepted social commitment. addressee)} This definition could then be refined as a withdrawal (as indicated in Withdrawal, shown below) if the involved commitment is in an active state, and if its discharge is being proposed by the same agent that proposed its adoption. Likewise, this definition could be refined as a Release (not shown) if the proposing and proposed agents are the creditor and debtor of the withdrawn commitment.
