We are researching diverse aspects of intelligent agents and multi-agent systems. Particular areas of interest include:

* Formal frameworks for cooperation between autonomous agents
* Methodologies for development of agent-based systems
* Formally modelling and using the notions of motivation and trust in managing inter-agent relationships
* Applying agent-oriented techniques in:
o Educational Technology and Distance Learning
o Internet, Distributed and GRID Computing

The department has agent-related publications in applying agents to GRID and to educational technology. The Agent-Based Systems group also has more general publications. A recent selection is available at
