Abstract: In today’s distributed systems, engineering interactions between components is a crucial issue, which requires decoupling and coordination. In this talk I propose a couple of approaches that have been applied to software agents. The former one is based on reactive and programmable tuple spaces, which decouples the interactions between agents and at the same time can be adapted to specific needs and can make the environment actively participate in the interactions. The latter approach is based on the concept of role, which is a behavior common to different entities; this allows to decouple the interaction logic from the application logic.
