Abstract

Agent interaction protocols are a key aspect of the design of multi- Agent systems. However, commonly-used notations are, we argue, difficult to use, and lack expressiveness in certain areas. In this paper we present a new notation for expressing interaction protocols, focussing on key issues that we have found to be problematic. The notation is evaluated against criteria, and using a human subject evaluation of usability.
