There are many applications of agent-based technology in the mathematical, physical and social scientific communities. Multi-agent systems are very complex applications to implement and optimise for large populations of agents. The optimisation of agent interactions and the management of initial data and outputs for large scale simulations are but two areas that need research and development efforts. Although there are many conferences where work on agent-based system is presented we would like to find out whether there is a sufficient number of interested groups within the ERCIM community to merit setting up an ERCIM Working Group on Agent-Based Technologies.

There are clearly many areas within agent-based methods that might benefit from such activity: serial and parallel implementation of agent-based applications, verification and validation of agent-based models, standards for the exchange of agent-based models to name a few.

If you have an interest in proposing and participating in an ERCIM Working Group on Agent-Based Technology please contact Prof Chris Greenough of the Software Engineering Group at the STFC's Rutherford Appleton Laboratory with your contact details and areas of interest.
