An Agent-based Framework for Multi-domain Service Networks - Eduroam Case Study

Ameneh Deljoo, Leon Gommans, Tom Van Engers, Cees de Laat

Abstract

This paper introduces a methodology for the acquisition of the computational model of a service provider group and its transformation into agent-based model. The methodology is as follows. First, we analyze the case at the signal layer, i.e. the message exchange between actors, and model them with the components of “belief, desire and intention (BDI)” agent architecture. In the next step, we identify the implicit actions, intentions, and conditions which are necessary for the story to occur. These steps correspond to descriptions of agent-roles observed in the case study. As a concrete result, a preliminary implementation of the framework has been developed with Groovy.
