Abstract

Starting from a general definition of how to model the organisation of multiagent systems with the aid of holonic structures, we discuss design parameters for such structures. These design parameters can be used to model a wide range of different organisational types. The focus of this contribution is to link these design parameters with a taxonomy of different types of autonomy relevant in multiagent organisation. We also discuss the constraining effect of autonomy on the recursive nesting of multiagent organisation. As the domain for applying multiagent systems we choose a general view on multiagent task-assignment.
