Abstract
This paper proposes a new abstract framework for modelling
interactions among agents in multi-agent organizations.
The proposed model -- the model of interaction categories, or MIgories
exhibits compositionality of interactions as well as emergence of
behavior that is not explicitly designed at the organizational level.
The proposed framework is expressive enough to model some of the
commonly observed interactions in both natural as well as artificial
organizations. More importantly, it allows us to specify and analyze
interactions in multi-agent organizations at a fairly high level of
abstraction, independent of specific implementations.
