SCTSare a class of Socio-Technical Systems that are complex, open, systems whereseveral humans and digital entities interact in order to achieve somecollective endeavour. The book approaches the question from the conceptualbackground of regulated open multiagent systems, with the question beingmotivated by their design and construction requirements. The book captures thecollective effort of eight groups from leading research centres anduniversities, each of which has developed a conceptual framework for the designof regulated multiagent systems and most have also developed technologicalartefacts that support the processes from specification to implementation ofthat type of systems. The first, introductory part of the book describes thechallenge of developing frameworks for SCTS and articulates the premises andthe main concepts involved in those frameworks. The second part discusses theeight frameworks and contrasts their main components. The final part maps thenew field by discussing the types of activities in which SCTS are likely to beused, the features that such uses will exhibit, and the challenges that willdrive the evolution of this field.
