The Web is moving towards the creation of a worldwide network of Web Services known as the Semantic Web. This new environment will allow agents to autonomously interact with Web information and services. This paper presents Apollo, an infrastructure which offers semantic matching and discovery capabilities to MoviLog, a platform for building mobile agents on the Semantic Web. Examples and experimental results showing the practical usefulness of Apollo are also reported.
