MAPa: A language for modelling conversations in agent environments

María Adela Grando, Christopher D. Walton

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


In this paper we present the MAPa language for expressing dialogues in multiagent systems. This is accomplished by defining patterns of communication between groups of agents, expressed by protocols. Our language is directly implementable and allows to specify the connection between communication and knowledge management in a way that is independent of the specific reasoning techniques used. Here we introduce MAPa formal syntax and we point out added features with respect to its predecessor, the MAPa language.
