A Survey of Self-Organization Mechanisms in Multiagent Systems

Journal Article


Abstract


  • This paper surveys the literature over the last

    decades in the field of self-organizing multiagent systems. Selforganization

    has been extensively studied and applied in multiagent

    systems and other fields, e.g., sensor networks and grid

    systems. Self-organization mechanisms in other fields have been

    thoroughly surveyed. However, there has not been a survey

    of self-organization mechanisms developed for use in multiagent

    systems. In this paper, we provide a survey of existing

    literature on self-organization mechanisms in multiagent systems.

    We also highlight the future work on key research issues

    in multiagent systems. This paper can serve as a guide and

    a starting point for anyone who will conduct research on

    self-organization in multiagent systems. Also, this paper complements

    existing survey studies on self-organization in multiagent

    systems.
