A coordination model provides a formal framework in which the interaction of active entities that we call agents can be expressed. A coordination model deals with the creation and destruction of agents, their communication activities, their distribution and mobility in space, as well as the synchronization and distribution of their actions over time. We show how a coordination model called PoliS offers a flexible basis for the description and the analysis of architectures of systems including mobile agents. We have developed a model checking technique for the automatic analysis of PoliS specifications
