    Trust plays important roles on effective interaction and cooperation for multi-agent systems(MAS). This study aims at finding out the current situation and future trends of computational trustfor multi-agent systems. Through defining seven common compositional elements for the computational trust models, the study points out significant weaknesses in the current design. Finally, the paper figures out the future research trends through discussion and analysis around the strengths and weaknesses identified. Also the paper proposes an idea of using ontology and XML technologies such as RDF that allow systems to provide both human and machine readable annotations for trust models.
