Abstract

Most of MAS methodologies and infrastructures do not consider direct human participation even though humans can be seen as autonomous entities (i.e. human agents). Virtual Worlds (VW) provide all the necessary means for direct human inclusion into software systems. Virtual Institutions (VI) take advantage of this and combine Electronic Institutions (EI) and VWs to engineer MAS applications where humans participate together with software agents. In this demo, we introduce virtual mWater (v-mWater ), a VI for water rights negotiation.
