Technological evolution over recent years (Internet, www, electronic commerce, wireless connection etc.) has led to a new paradigm of “computing as interaction”. Under this paradigm, computing is something that is carried out through the communication between computational entities. In this sense, computing is an inherently social activity rather than solitary, leading to new forms of conceiving, designing, developing and managing computational systems. One example of the influence of this viewpoint is the emerging model of software as a service, for example in service-oriented architectures. The technology of agents/multiagent systems is particularly promising as a support for this new computing as interaction paradigm. Dynamic agent organisations that self-adjust in order to make the most of their current environment are increasingly important. These organisations could appear in dynamic or emerging societies of agents such as Grid domains, peer-to-peer networks, or other environments in which the agents coordinate in a dynamic way in order to offer composite services. The social factors in the organisation of multi-agent systems are also increasingly important for structuring interactions in dynamic open worlds. Within this interesting area, part of the more general field of Intelligent Systems, we can identify a number of important lines of research:

The aim of the present project is to advance and contribute solutions in these areas, principally in the aspects related to organisational structures. In this sense, the following is proposed:
