Abstract

The nature of computing paradigm has shifted from centralized, static and closed to distributed, dynamic and open due to the advent and popularity of Internet. Multi-agent system (MAS) gained popularity as its characteristic match with this paradigm shift. In order for MAS to interact efficiently and communicate meaningfully, agent communication language (ACL) plays an important role. FIPA-ACL is an ACL developed by FIPA that has become the de facto standard of ACL’s implementation in MAS. Another emerging trend due to Internet is the Semantic Web (SW). Semantic web is an extension of the current World Wide Web, which encodes the content of the web with well-defined meaning to allow it to be processed by machines such as computer (agents). Hence, combining the existing FIPA-ACL with semantic web can bring ACLs to another level to enhance the interoperability in MAS. In this paper, a FIPA-ACL ontology in OWL is proposed to enhance the communication between agents in MAS.
