Our motivation in proposing the Plan­Merging
Paradigm as a cooperation scheme was to allow an

activity to contingencies for multi­robot applications
with loosely coupled tasks.
The paradigm proved to be quite efficient because it
exploits the fact that most conflicts can be solved lo­
cally and because it allows a finer overlapping between
plan refinement, plan coordination and execution.
However, we would like to have a scheme which dis­
tributes as much as possible the decision processes for
planning and coordination while maintaining two key
