The goal of this paper is to propose a way to register agents so that makes users or autonomous agents to find target agents more conveniently and efficiently. In order to achieve this goal, we have survey the key technologies such as UDDI, ebXML, FIPA DF. As the results, first we have designed a new agent registry/repository system based on ebXML technologies. Next, we introduce our agent registry/repository system for wide area network and describe how to use our system for registering agents and searching target agents for communications. Finally, we give an example to illustrate a typical scenario in which user receives the results from our proposed agent registry/repository system.
