Agent research in the Department of Computer Science is driven by three academics - Gregory O'Hare, Eleni Mangina, and Rem Collier - whose collectively are supervising around 25 postgraduate students. Their work includes both core agent technologies and applications of agent technologies.

Core agent technology work is centred around an in-house agent platform, known as Agent Factory, which is a cohesive framework that delivers structured support for the development and deployment of agent-oriented applications. Ongoing work includes: autonomic agent-based application architectures, an agent migration framework, and agent-oriented programming languages.

In terms of applications, the department has projects that cover areas such as e-learning, robotics, virtual reality, mobile computing, distributed sensor networks, and information retrieval.

Collectively, the academic members have published over 150 conference papers and journal articles. Details of these can be found on the departmental website.
