<p>Cloud computing systems provide large-scale infrastructures for high-performance computing that can adapt to user and application needs. Multi-agent systems (MASs) comprise interacting agents capable of intelligent behavior. Integrating these two technologies could enable high-performance, complex systems and intelligent applications, making clouds more flexible and autonomic and providing MASs with a reliable and scalable computing infrastructure on which to execute large-scale applications.</p>
