Agents for Hand-Held, Mobile, or Embedded Devices
This section consists of papers presented in a special session at ATAL 2001, devoted to a challenging new area of agent technology, viz. agents for hand-held, mobile, or embedded devices, such as cell phones and palmtops. The challenge in this area is to do agent-based computing with the highest functionality possible on devices with very limited resources. In particular, one likes to have agents running on them with adequatecommunication capabilities, preferably FIPA-compliant. The papers in this section address the problem of how to obtain these agent communication capabilities in small devices.
