ABSTRACT A multi-agent system is a network individual agent that work together to achieve a goal through communication and collaboration
among each other. Standardized infrastructure for information or knowledge sharing is required to make autonomous agents interdependent
on each other for effective collaboration in a multi-agent system. In order to enhance productivity of knowledge workers knowledge
management tools should support collaborative environments among desktop, web, and even mobile devices. The Semantic Web is
the place where software agents perform various intelligent tasks using standard knowledge representational schemes that are
named “ontologies.” This paper presents a conceptual framework of the social knowledge activities and knowledge processes
with regard to the social software agents. Our prototype, called WANT, is a wiki-based semantic tagging system for collaborative
and communicative knowledge creation and maintenance by a human or software agent. It can be supported in both desktop and
mobile environments.

    ABSTRACT: Knowledge plays a major role in enterprises, given its importance as a significant organizational asset. In order to solve problems and support complex decision-making processes, knowledge and experience have to be transmitted between diverse individuals and organizations. Thus, knowledge-sharing can be considered a fundamental element in any knowledge-oriented process, because it fosters collaboration, and facilitates experiential knowledge discovery, distribution, and use. We present the E-Decisional Community, a proposal for an integrated knowledge-sharing platform where several entities are able to share experiential knowledge. Its main concern is to promote experiential knowledge evolution and sharing through generations of decision makers, aiming at the creation of a marketplace where knowledge is provided as a service.
