Description

The agent related activities of the School of Computing and Technology (SCoT) are divided into two main areas: hardware and software agents.

Research activities related to hardware agents are undertaken mainly on the Electrical Engineering Department. These involve research on intelligent systems and mobile robotics.

Research activities related to software agents are mainly undertaken on the Computing department and more specifically at the Security Engineering and Intelligent Systems (SEIS) research group. Activities involve the development of techniques, models and methodologies for the development of secure multiagent systems, research on mobile agent systems, and the application of agent technology to e-commerce and health and social care information systems. Moreover, memebers of the SEIS group are actively involved in international agent related projects, such as the Tropos project (www.troposproject.org).

Also, school members are involved in the organisation of events (workshops, special sessions) related to agent technology such as:
The 1st International Workshop on Safety and Security in Multiagent Systems (at AAMAS 2004) (http://www.cs.auckland.ac.nz/research/safeagent/2004/)
Special Session on Security in Agent systems (at SCI 2004)
(http://www.uel.ac.uk/seis/documents/CFP.PDF)


School members have been published articles related to different areas of agent research:
Security of agent systems
Agent oriented software engineering
agent systems in e-commerce
agent technology and health care systems
hardware agents
mobile robotics
