This document describes the software architecture of Footux-99 team (simulation league). It is now well known that purely reactive (resp. cognitif) agents are out of date. An agent must be able to respond reactively when it is necessary but; it should have a general behaviour guide-line. strategy. The most classical approach consists in using a hybrid architecture.

The architecture we are introducing in this article is a hybrid one. It combines vertical and horizontal hybrid approachs where each layer is based on a subsumption architecture.

The aim of our approach is to study the possibility to obtain a cooperative behavior within a multi-agents system without using centralized control; and thus to observe the emergence of potential relations between an agent and the society to which it belongs.
