Abstract: This paper proposes to study a refinement of open and concurrent interaction protocols, allowing hierarchical construction of complex interactions in multi-agent systems. The generic approach presented in this paper integrates Petri nets formalism and component based approach. The study of the refinement of the protocols by the principle of component-substitutability has been used to address one of the key issues of component-based software development, consistency: will a component protocol fit or not? This paper provides new results to deal with some protocol engineering issues through the specification and the verification of such protocols.
