ABSTRACT The concept of distributed computing implies a network / internet-work of independent nodes which are logically configured in such a manner as to be seen as one machine by an application. They have been implemented in many varying forms and configurations, for the optimal processing of data. Agents and multi-agent systems are useful in modeling complex distributed processes. They focus on support for (the development of) large-scale, secure, and heterogeneous distributed systems. They are expected to abstract both hardware and software vis-à-vis distributed systems. For optimizing the use of the tremendous increase in processing power, bandwidth, and memory that technology is placing in the hands of the designer, a Dynamically Distributed Service (to be positioned as a service to a network / internet-work) is proposed. The service will conceptually migrate an application on to different nodes. In this paper, we present the design and implementation of an inter-mobility (migration) mechanism for agents. This migration is based on FIPA ACL messages. We also evaluate the performance of this implementation.

    ABSTRACT: A lot of work is devoted to formalizing and devising architectures for agents' cooperative behaviour, for coordinating the behaviour of individual agents within groups, as well as to designing agent societies using social laws. However, providing agents with abilities to automatically devise societies so as to form coherent emergent groups that coordinate their behaviour via social laws, is highly challenging. These systems are called self-organised. We are beginning to understand some of the ways in which selforganised agent systems can be devised. In this perspective, this paper provides several examples of multi-agent systems in which self-organisation, based on different mechanisms, is used to solve complex problems. Several criteria for comparison of self-organisation between the different applications are provided.

    ABSTRACT: Recent advances in wireless sensor networks have led to many new protocols specifically designed for sensor networks where energy awareness is an essential consideration. Most of the attention, however, has been given to the routing protocols since they might differ depending on the application and network architecture. This paper surveys recent routing protocols for sensor networks and presents a classification for the various approaches pursued. The three main categories explored in this paper are data-centric, hierarchical and location-based. Each routing protocol is described and discussed under the appropriate category. Moreover, protocols using contemporary methodologies such as network flow and quality of service modeling are also discussed. The paper concludes with open research issues.
