Transparent Migration of Mobile Agents.
IEE Seminar: Mobile Agents --- Where are They Going?
Full text not available from this repository.
SoFAR, the SOuthampton Framework for Agent Research, is used to build a pervasive information system, which provides context-adapted information to mobile users. Mobile agents are used as intermediaries between mobile users and the fixed infrastructure, migrating to locations with resources adapted to their objectives. SoFAR is equipped with an algorithm for tracking mobile agents and for transparently routing messages to them, without assuming the existence of any fixed or centralised control. In this paper, we present the algorithm and describe how it was integrated in the declarative style of SoFAR communications. Then, we present the agent meeting room: the realisation, in the agent framework, of a mechanism by which mobile users may exchange information during meetings.
