Research in the area of Multi-Agent System (MAS) organization has shown that the ability for a MAS to adapt its organizational structure can be beneficial when coping with dynamics and uncertainty in the MASs environment. Different types of reorganization exist, such as changing relations and interaction patterns between agents, changing agent roles and changing the coordination style in the MAS. In this paper we propose a framework for agent Coordination and Reorganization (AgentCoRe) that incorporates each of these aspects of reorganization. We describe both declarative and procedural knowledge an agent uses to decompose and assign tasks, and to reorganize. The RoboCupRescue simulation environment is used to demonstrate how AgentCoRe is used to build a MAS that is capable of reorganizing itself by changing relations, interaction patterns and agent roles.
