Addressing such a challenge requires solutions to two problems: a) Reasoning about the need for dynamic changes to coordination policies in response to changes in priorities, preferences, and constraints. b) Coordinating the run-time assembly of policy changes in a dependable manner. This paper introduces the NAVCo approach to address these problems. The approach involves exploiting negotiation-based coordination to address the first problem and model-based change coordination to address the second problem. These two key features of the approach are well suited for realization using an agent-based architecture. The paper describes the archi...
