  abstract= "This paper aims to demonstrate that concepts from
     Distributed Artificial Intelligence are very useful to
     design concurrent systems. The BESA framework and the AOPOA
     methodology are introduced as tools to achieve this goal.
     The Behavior-oriented, Event-driven and Social-based Agent
     (BESA) framework combines the concepts of MultiAgent Systems
     with the design of concurrent systems: an agent can be
     constructed as a set of behaviors; the notion of behaviors
     can be directly applied to concurrent systems design using
     the Agent Oriented Programming paradigm. The internal
     architecture of a BESA agent integrates two important
     features: a modular composition of behaviors and an event
     dispatcher based in a select like mechanism. The Agent
     Oriented Programming based in an Organizational Approach
     (AOPOA) methodology provides a systematic procedure to build
     complex system based in three concepts: a hierarchical
     recursive decomposition of the system, a goal-oriented role
     identification, and an evolution of the cooperation
     relationships linking the system components."
