In: Proceedings of the Workshop Ambient Intelligence - Agents for Ubiquitous Environments. AAMAS Workshop on Ambient Intelligence - Agents for Ubiquitous Environments (AmbiAgents), located at Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems (AAMAS-2005), July 26, Utrecht, Netherlands, Springer, 2005.


The research project CASCOM will implement, validate, and trial value-added support for business services for mobile workers and users across mobile and fixed networks. The vision of the CASCOM approach is that ubiquitous application services are exibly co-ordinated and pervasively provided to the mobile users by intelligent agents in dynamically changing contexts of open, large-scale, pervasive environments. The essential approach of CASCOM is the innovative combination of intelligent agent technology, semantic Web services, peer-to-peer, and mobile computing for intelligent peer-to-peer (IP2P) service environments. The services are provided by software agents exploiting the co-ordination infrastructure to effciently operate in highly dynamic environments.
