    Model Driven Development (MDD) provides an infrastructure that simplifies Multi-agent System (MAS) development by increasing the abstraction level. In addition to defining models, transformation process for those models is also crucial in MDD. On the other hand, MAS modeling should also take care of emerging requirements of MAS deployment on the Semantic Web environment. Hence, in this paper we propose a model transformation process for MDD of Semantic Web enabled MASs. We first define source and target models for the transformation regarding the modeling of interactions between agents and semantic web services and then grant mappings between these source and model entities to derive transformation rules and constraints. Finally we realize the whole transformation for a real MAS framework by using a well-known model transformation language named ATL.
