Abstract

In this paper, we introduce the ROADMAP meta-model, designed to describe intelligent adaptive systems in open environments, using agent concepts such as roles. Developing intelligent adaptive systems creates new challenges in engineering software quality attributes such as correctness and reliability. The ROADMAP meta-model captures our understanding of properties of intelligent adaptive systems and our perspective on organizational concepts such as roles. The meta-model does not solve specific engineering problems, but provides a clean high-level structure where engineering issues can be grouped and classified. Infrastructure to support these issues can then be put in place progressively wi..
