Multi agent systems (MAS) are useful for building up software systems that can controll complex technical systems. When dialogue systems are incorporated, user intentions can be communicated to the system via speech and are processed by hierarchically organized autonomous agents with distributed knowledge and responsibilities in the application domain. Agents on deeper levels in the hierarchy execute, observe, and refine plans constructed by higher level agents. Conflicts between requirements of tasks and the current application state are resolved by local planning and negotiating with the user.
