Abstract

Organisational centred multi-agent systems (MAS) have proved to be effective to regulate agents’ activities. Nevertheless, population and/or environmental changes may lead to a pour fulfilment of the system’s purposes, and therefore, adapting the whole organisation becomes key. This paper presents a MAS simulator devoted to test organisations with self-adaptation capabilities in P2P scenarios. More specifically, our simulator implements different sharing P2P methods –some of them with self-adaptation– and so, it can be used as a testbed for comparing them.
