We propose an approach based on Adaptive Multi-Agent Systems, using the principles of Meta-User Interfaces and Opportunism in order to solve Human-Computer Interaction Composition in Ambient interactive spaces. The idea of this approach is to see every component as an agent able to interact with other components to compose autonomously in order to opportunistically suggest to users smart compositions of his interactive ambient environment. We present the notions of component, composition, and human-computer interaction composition. We chose mainly two aspects of the composition of human-computer interaction which are the controllability and finality of the composition. Finally, we illustrate our approach with use cases taken from the neoCampus project.
