Coordination and Organization: Definitions, Examples and Future Research Directions. (bibtex)
by G. Boella, L. van der Torre
Abstract:
Coordination languages and models like Linda and Reo have been developed in com- puter science to coordinate the interaction among components and objects, and are nowadays used to model and analyze organizations too. Moreover, organizational concepts are used to enrich the existing coordination languages and models. We describe this research area of ``organization and coordination'' by presenting definitions, examples, and future research directions. We highlight two issues. First, we argue for a study of value-based rather than information-based coordination languages to model the coordination of autonomous agents and organizations. Second, we argue for a study of the balance between enforced control and trust-based anticipation to deal with security aspects in the coordination of organizations.
