Agent Communication Languages for Information-Centric Agent Communities
As the complexity and application scope of agent-based systems increases, the requirements placed on Agent Communication Languages have also increased with it. Currently-available ACLs focus on agent-based systems in the domain of knowledge agents. Therefore, they lack certain facilities required to implement large, complex, and robust information-centric agent systems. These facilities are required for efficient information transfer, use of multimedia information, and data security. Furthermore, information-gathering agents tend to execute longrunning and/or complex tasks, and require ACL support for managing tasks and conversations. Lastly, information agents (and other types of agents) may require more flexible agent-level management and control, specifically in the areas of mobile resources and/or intermittentlyconnected users. In this paper we attempt to discuss the shortcomings of existing ACLs and provide specific solutions to address them. The proposed ACL architecture is base...
