In this project I present an approach to the organization of Electronic Energy Markets based on Artificial Institutions (AIs). I develop a meta-model for the specification of AIs that are situated in complex agent environments where heterogeneous agents reside. I further extend MANET in order to monitor, coordinate and mediate the energy trading agents and to model the electronic form of their actions (contracts, agreements, commitments, energy auctions, trading energy packages, etc) University of Lugano & HES-SO Valais, Switzerland Ph.D. Candidate, Communication Sciences & Bussiness Information Systems, October 2009 - October 2013 (estimated graduation time) • Supervisors: Professor Marco Colombetti & Professor Michael Ignaz Schumacher • Area of Study: Open Interaction Multi-Agent Systems • Related Research Project: Open Interaction Frameworks - A Model Based on Artificial Institutions • Objective: The objective of my Ph.D. is to specify an appropriate governing agent environment applied to open interaction systems, systems devised for enabling autonomous agents (software or human) to interact, negotiate, collaborate, and coordinate their activities in order to establish agreements for achieving certain goals. To achieve the objective, I proposed MANET (Multi-agent Normative EnvironmenTs), a first-class normative meta-model with a focus on mixing human 1 of 4

For testing and evaluation, I develop a demonstrative system able to support the activities of an e-Energy marketplace. The Artificial Intelligence Research Institute (IIIA) of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) Research Scholar, November 2011 • Advisor: Professor Carles Sierra • Objective: I studied the idea of the governing environment that consists in a ruling environmental layer allowing agents to interact without any knowledge of low level elements of multi-agent systems. The governing environment offers an approach in multi-agent systems organization and coordination that allows open interaction. Based on the electronic institutions definition I modeled the evolution of Electronic Institutions which are situated inside governing environmental infrastructures List of Summer Schools • SSSW 2012, 9th Summer School on Ontology Engineering and the Semantic Web • Correspondence Analysis and Related Methods, 16th Swiss Summer School 2012 • DALT 2011, First International Spring School on Declarative Agent Languages and Technologies • ISCL 2011, Third International ALP/GULP Spring School on Computational Logic • EASSS 2010, The 12th European Agent Systems Summer School Techical University of Crete, Chania, Greece Diploma Engineer (MSc), Electronic and Computer Engineering, March 2006 GPA: 7.92 (10 scale) • Thesis title: Algorithms for optimal penetration of wind farms into isolated power systems • Thesis summary: The objective of the thesis was the proposal of complex algorithms which predict the amount of wind energy that can by absorbed by non-interconnected electrical systems. This methodology refers to the ”steady state” of the system, which is crucial for the determination of the wind energy penetration limit. It takes into account the specific characteristics of the island, the composition of local power production plants, the technical constraints for a smooth and safe operation of the system and the wind data of the isolated system/island Publications Nicoletta Fornara, Charalampos Tampitsikas.
