> DESCRIPTION
> Grid Computing is an active research area which promises to provide a
> flexible
> infrastructure for complex, dynamic and distributed resource sharing.
> Recent
> research on Grid has largely focused on issues of performance,
> scalability and
> standardisation. Managing access to computing and data resources is a
> complex
> and time consuming task. As Grid computing matures, deciding which
> systems to
> use, where the data resides for a particular application domain, how to
> migrate
> the data to the point of computation (or vice versa), and data rates
> required to
> maintain a particular application behaviour become significant. There
> are still
> issues to be tackled such as: semantically enhanced service descriptions
> and
> specification of resources, autonomy, collaboration and economic
> models,
> self-organisation and learning, intelligence and adaptability. Many of
> these
> research areas offer new opportunities to Grid Computing researchers.
> Some have
> already been addressed within the multi-agent systems community.
> Agent and multi-agent technologies provide a promising approach to make
> Grid
> technologies and solutions based on Grid and Cluster technologies
> smarter, more
> flexible, and adaptable. Often, within the multi-agent community, agents
> are
> restricted to small numbers of agents -- and often agents undertake
> similar tasks.
> To support Grid computing, agents can offer different roles, be
> organised into
> dynamic "groups", and be able to migrate between groups to support load
> balancing.
> Therefore agents could play an important role in Grid Computing, and
> Grid Computing
>  can offer useful testbeds for investigating Agent services. The Grid is
> not only a
> low level infrastructure for supporting computation, but can also
> facilitate and
> enable information and knowledge sharing at the higher semantic levels,
> to support
> knowledge integration and dissemination.
> The aim of this workshop is to bring together infrastructure developers,
> applications
> developers, and researchers, who are working towards the vision of a
> Grid using agent
> and multi-agent based technologies. The workshop will also aim to
> inspire and encourage
> collaboration between these two communities.
