Various agent related activities are taking place at Cardiff:

CONNOISE and CONNOISE-G (EPSRC/DTI funded), involves Cardiff, Aberdeen, Southampton, BT
(explores the formation of virtual organisations and resource sharing
based on agents)

DIPSO (EPSRC/DTI), involves Cardiff, University of West of England, SEA Group, EVOTEC OAI
(explores the use of agents to support workflow applications)

LEAF (local Cardiff project) -- explores the formation of "utility" based
agent communities. LEAF is a toolkit that extends the FIPA-OS system.

GENSS (EPSRC) -- involves Bath University
(explores the use of semantic matchmaking for numerical services -- such
as those provided in NAG libraries).
