Many works have identified the potential benefits of using argumentation to address a large variety of multiagent problems. In this paper we take this idea one step further and develop the concept of a fully integrated argumentation-based agent architecture that allows us to develop agents that are coherently designed on an underlying argumentation based foundation. Under this architecture, an agent is composed of a collection of modules each of which is equipped with a local argumentation theory. Similarly, the intra-agent control of the agent is governed by local argumentation theories that are sensitive to the current situation of the agent through dynamically enabled feasibility arguments. © 2010 The authors and IOS Press.
