Abstract: Task assignment in Multi-Agent Systems is a complex coordination problem, especially in systems that operate under dynamic and changing conditions. Adaptive task assignment is used to handle these dynamic and changing circumstances. This technical document describes an adaptive task assignment protocol, DynCNET which is an extension of the Contract Net Protocol. In this document, the DynCNET protocol will be build step by step, starting from the Contract Net protocol. We will add dynamic task assignment, synchronization of abort messages and scope handling. The final result will be the DynCNET protocol with support for synchronization of abort messages and scope handling.
