In Electronic Institutions, agents may be prevented from achieving their goals if other participants are not present in a given scene. In order to overcome this situation we propose the addition of an institutional agent in charge of dispatching agents to scenes through a participation request protocol. We further propose to endow this agent with the capability of instantiating new agents, thus providing grounds for a self-optimization of the system. Advantages of our proposal are illustrated with the implementation of an information auditing process.
