The representation of an agent organisation using a concrete computational entity is a frequently missing feature in platforms for multiagent systems, and it is normally left as a result of the emergent behaviour of interacting agents. This is also the case for JADE, one of the most used multiagent system platforms. This paper proposes an extension to JADE that addresses this missing concept, without disrupting the compatibility with previously developed systems nor the availability of JADE' s platform services.
