Multiagent systems are a specific case of collective adaptive systems; in fact, their sociality leads to be a collective set of autonomous entities; their proactiveness allows them to adapt to unpredictable situations. This field presents a valuable experience that can be exploited and reused for other kinds of collective adaptive systems.
