Abstract: Currently, there is no method for describing the requirements of a multi agent protocol. Much work has been done on describing protocols themselves, and this work has continually shifted from low-level protocols, such as situation-action pairs, to higher-level protocols, such as conversation policies. Despite the wealth of work in methods for describing policies, there is no work on describing what a policy should do. A method to describe what (and not how) would be useful in the area of automated protocol evaluation and even protocol generation. To address this gap, this paper outlines a situation model that contains all of the information needed to define the requirements of a new protocol in a declarative manner. The situation model describes the needed information to develop new protocols, try those protocols in an appropriate environment and then evaluate the performance of the protocols once they have been executed. In addition, this model has a fairly simple textual representat ion that is designed to be easily parsed. This paper also outlines how this model could be used to generate possible protocols and to evaluate potential protocols. (More)
