How to Get Multi-Agent Systems Accepted in Industry?

With many researchers in the multi-agent system community, the authors share the opinion that too much of the quality and relevant research in the area of multi-agent systems is under-represented in the development of complex distributed systems in practice today. In their experience, a Babylonic mismatch is a crucial factor in this fact - research on multi-agent systems profiles itself as an isolated community and as such may create artificial thresholds to convince mainstream software developers of its merits. They argue that integrating concepts and techniques from agent-based software engineering within mainstream software engineering provides opportunities to amplify industrial adoption of multi-agent systems.
