An important family of existing coordination models and languages is based on the idea of trapping the messages exchanged by the coordinated entities and by the specification of rules governing the coordination. No model, including our CoLaS coordination model, justifies clearly the reason of their coordination rules. Why these rules and not others? Are they all necessary? These are questions that remain still open. In order to try to provide an answer, in particular for the CoLaS model, we propose in this paper OpenCoLaS, a framework for building CoLaS coordination dialects. The OpenCoLaS framework allows to experiment with the definition of coordination rules.
