A pattern language for FIPA agent interface design
This paper presents a pattern language supporting the design of web/mobile interfaces to static agents built by FIPA-compliant agent toolkits. The approach followed was to collaboratively gather the requirements the language should satisfy, and derive, select and combine appropriate patterns fulfilling them. The use of the language has been validated in four case studies and its suitability for meeting the agent interface development requirements has been evaluated using Force Resolution Maps (FRMs). It is has been found that the proposed language fully satisfies the identified requirements. © 2005 IEEE.
