My research interests have been the definition of coordination models for Agent Oriented Information Systems. Coordination is seen as a first-class design dimension ensuring the coherent and efficient behavior of cooperative agents. Several coordination techniques have been investigated such as organizational structuring, contracting, negotiation and interaction protocols. Coordination models are described by means of Petri Nets, known as an adequate formalism for specifying, simulating and verifying parallel and distributed systems in a formal way. These models have been applied to several distributed, cooperative, open and large scale applications such as crisis management, inter-organizational workflow or cooperative information gathering.
I have also been a member of AgentLink, the ESPRIT-funded European Network of Excellence in the area of agent-based computing.
Currently in charge of the IRIT laboratory at Toulouse 1 University.
From 2005 to 2009, I was member of the scientific board (conseil scientifique) of Toulouse 1 University.
In 2011, I co-founded the international CT2CM workshop which addresses the following issue: how can collaborative information technologies ease the coordination of Crisis Management. in 2014, I will chair the ISCRAMMED conference.
I held an invited research position at the SOIE laboratory in Tunis, in 2005. I also use to cooperate with, welcome and visit colleagues from Algiers, Bucarest, Santa Caterina (Brasil), Guadalajara (Mexico) and Trondheim (Norway).
interests include multi-agent systems, workflow management, databases
and programming languages.
From 2000 to 2006, I was the head of a "licence
diploma (professionnally oriented Bachelor degree) in computer science
