Part of the Advances in Intelligent and Soft Computing book series (AINSC, volume 71)


This presents a study in which a high level abstract architecture was used to design open multi-agent systems and virtual organizations that offer services with temporal constraints implemented by Real-Time Agents. The results will demonstrate how the proposed architecture, with features that make it suitable for development of open MAS (Multi-Agent Systems), allows us to add specific functionality and real time services.
