We present a conceptual framework for agent societies that\ud incorporates the specification of global organizational characteristics with\ud individual aims and capabilities. The framework consists of three interrelated\ud models each describing different aspects of the society. The organizational\ud model describes agent societies in terms of roles, constraints and interactions\ud rules. The social model populates the society with actual agents that realize the\ud objectives of the society by enacting role(s) described in the organizational\ud model. Finally, the interaction model describes the interaction commitments\ud between those agents. The interdependencies between models are described by\ud means of contracts. Contract rules specify commitments between agents and\ud society concerning role enactment, and commitments between agents\ud concerning interaction
