Description

Our research unit focuses on agent technology applied to informaiton systems. Our main efforts concern the MOMIS system. In the last few years, we have been taking agent trechnology into consideration for executing a number of task within the MOMIS mediator system. In particular we have tackled how agent cna be deployed for executing tasks related to information integration and querying. We have thus tackled diverse facets of agent technology from multi-agent system design (AUML) to intelligent information agents distributed querying.

These efforts have been carried out within the funded projects the group has been involved in, both as participant and as coordinator. The most important ones are: SEWASIE (coordinator, on-going), WINK (partner), MIUR 2001 Software agents and electronic commerce (partner), MIUR 2003 Trust (partenr, on-going).
