We define the role and mechanisms of coordination in Intelligent Agent Societies (IASs). We then outline our approach and the underlying design principles aimed at the automatic generation of a Theory of Coordination. Such theory would assist in designing new IASs and provide trouble-shooting tools for suboptimally functioning IASs. We also describe in this paper the decisions that have been made in this endeavor. We have been able to show via a simplified model that the approach is feasible and can produce results. The project is one of the few examples of work in Experimental AI.
