The aim of the project is to provide a unifying scientific framework and a coherent set of design rules, for global systems resulting from the integration of autonomous interacting entities, dynamic multi-agent environments and ad-hoc mobile networks. The focus will be on the issues of co-operation and antagonism, stability and fault-tolerance, as well as communication and motion in such global systems.
