An Argumentative Model for Service-Oriented Agents

Maxime Morge, Paolo Mancarella, Jarred McGinnis, Stefano Bromuri, Kostas Stathis

In this paper we propose an argumentative agent model able to reason and make decisions, communicate and negotiate with other agents with the aim of supporting service selection and composition. Actually, our agent model is inspired from the general-purpose KGP agent model which deals only partially with priorities as required by our application. We provide here an argumentation framework which adopts Knowledge, Goals, Decisions, and Priorities as the main component to perform the individual and social reasoning of agents. We propose here an example to illustrate our approach.
