The Agent-Based Systems Group (ABSG) in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Warwick is led by Dr. Nathan Griffiths. Currently, it includes 5 members: 2 lecturers and 2 PhD students. Its research is concerned with diverse aspects of intelligent agents and multi-agent systems. Particular areas of interest include:

  • Formal frameworks for cooperation between autonomous agents
  • Methodologies for development of agent-based systems
  • Formally modelling and using the notions of motivation, trust and reputation in managing inter-agent relationships
  • Mechanisms for coalition formation amongst agents
  • Applying agent-oriented techniques in:
    • Educational Technology and Distance Learning
    • Internet, Grid and Distributed Computing
