Organizational design plays a critical role in the development of larger and more complex multi agent systems (MAS). As systems grow to include hundreds or thousands of agents, those in the field must move from an agent centric view of coordination and control to an organization centric one. The Handbook of Research on Multi Agent Systems: Semantics and Dynamics of Organizational Models brings together views and approaches from different communities including MAS, computational organizational simulation, social simulation, organizational theory, and cognitive science, to present the intersections of the different topics. Containing chapters by renowned international authors, this book provides a comprehensive volume on the state of the art on formal semantic models and practical applications for dynamic formalisms of agent organizations.
