E-Business in ArguGRID

  • Francesca Toni
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 4685)


The ArguGRID project aims at supporting e-business applications, and in particular e-procurement, earth observation and business migration scenarios, by means of argumentative agent-based grid technologies. In this paper we outline the main features of the ARGUGRID envisaged system, intended to support more generally service selection and composition in distributed environments, including the grid and service-oriented architectures.
