Abstract : In this paper, a simulation of a multi-agent recommender system is presented and developed in the NetLogo platform. The specification of this recommender system is based on the well known Belief-Desire-Intention agent architecture applied to multi-context systems, extended with contexts for additional reasoning abilities, especially social ones. The main goal of this simulation study is, besides illustrating the usefulness and feasibility of our agent-based recommender system in a realistic scenario, to understand how groups of agents behave in a social network compared to individual agents. Results show that agents within a social network have better collective performance than individual ones. The utility and the satisfaction of agents is increased by the exchange of messages when executing intentions
