Abstract

We propose a logical framework for modelling and verifying context-aware multi-agent systems. We extend with belief and communication modalities, and the resulting logic allows us to describe a set of rule-based reasoning agents with bound on time, memory and communication. The set of rules which are used to model the systems is derived from OWL 2 RL ontologies. We provide an axiomatization of the logic and prove it is sound and complete. We show how Maude rewriting system can be used to encode and verify interesting properties of models using existing model checking techniques.
