Presents an overview of the ITX (Interacting Transaction) system, which supports complex interactions among cooperating agents in the presence of user interventions that change application objectives and system failures. The system's components and its unique fixed-point criterion for feedback control of iterative interactions are described. An example of a simplified multimedia teleconferencing application is discussed to illustrate the features of the ITX system.
