    We describe a novel agent programming language, Meta-APL, and
    give its operational semantics. Meta-APL allows both agent programs and their
    associated deliberation strategy to be encoded in the same programming language. We define a notion of equivalence between programs written in different
    agent programming languages based on the notion of weak bisimulation equivalence. We show how to simulate (up to this notion of equivalence) programs
    written in other agent programming languages by programs of Meta-APL. This
    involves translating both the agent program and the deliberation strategy under
    which it is executed into Meta-APL.
