Abstract: Abstract. In this chapter, we discuss the design of adaptive hierarchical organizations for multi-agent systems (MAS). Hierarchical organizations have a number of advantages such as their ability to handle complex problems and their scalability to large organizations. By introducing adaptivity in the structure of hierarchical MAS organizations, we enable agents to balance resources in their organization. We will first provide a number of generic principles for the design of hierarchical MAS organizations. We s… Show more

“…Our experiments consist of two parts. First we compare the proposed team-based model and the hierarchical one introduced in [10] against the rate of successful task handling. A second series of experiments show the effect of problem-size on system efficiency.…”

“…Several organizational Structures for modelling MASs are introduced in literature [5], [7], [8]. In addition, a variety of adaptation methods for different organizations have been proposed yet [6], [9][10][11][12][13][14][15][16]. All of these methods attempt to enhance the system effectiveness using adaptation.…”
