Electronic institutions (EIs) allow to establish interaction conventions among agents --persons and/or programs--on the basis of a distributed, open and computationally dynamic environment.
This project has as a main goal the study of techniques which allow to provide EIs with autonomic capabilities that allow them to offer a dynamic response under changing circumstances by adopting interaction conventions, producing a high-level development environment for autonomous electronic institutions (AEI).
From all those features characterizing an autonomous system, we will focus mainly on the study of auto configuration and reconfiguration. Besides, the development environment will provide us with tools for specification and analysis of AEI which will allow us to reduce the time and complexity of their development. In order to validate the resulting framework, we will carry out experiments based on real-world problems modelled by means of AEIs.
