      CCGrid 2005
      CCGrid2005, sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society (final approval
      pending), is designed to bring together international leaders who are
      pioneering researchers, developers, and users of clusters, networks,
      and Grid architectures and applications. The symposium will also serve
      as a forum to present the latest work, and highlight related
      activities from around the world. Papers due 1 December 2004. To be
      held 9-12 May 2005 in Cardiff, UK.

      ICWS 2005
      The 2005 IEEE International Conference on Web Services (ICWS 2005)
      isthe THIRD year of ICWS focusing on Web Services. The long-term goal
      ofICWS is to build up a reputable and respectable conference for
      theinternational community. ICWS is a forum for researchers and
      industrypractitioners to exchange information regarding advancements
      in thestate of the art and practice of Web Services, as well as to
      identifythe emerging research topics and define the future of Web
      Servicescomputing. ICWS 2005 is sponsored by IEEE Computer Society
      TechnicalSteering Committee (a.k.a. Technical Community) for Services
      Computing(TSC-SC) and will be co-located with the 2005 IEEE
      InternationalConference on Services Computing (SCC 2005). The theme of
      this jointIEEE conference on SERVICES is "Bridge the Gap between
      Business Servicesand IT Services". It is to be held 12-15 July 2005 in
      Orlando, Florida. Papers due 31 January 2005.

      Service-Oriented Computing : Semantics, Processes, Agents
      book by Munindar P. Singh and Michael N. Huhns. Published 2005.
      This comprehensive book explains the principles and practice
      ofservice-oriented computing, with most of its concepts developed in
      the context of Web services and agents. The book presents the
      concepts,architectures, theories, techniques, standards, and
      infrastructurenecessary for employing services. It includes a
      comprehensive overviewof the state-of-the-art in Web services and
      associated disciplines,relating concepts to practical examples and
      emerging standards.Applications of technologies are explained within
      the context ofplanning, negotiation, contracts, compliance, privacy,
      and networkpolicies.

      Living Systems Technology Suite
      In the context of the AgentLink "Agent Technology Conference" held
      on 1 October 2004 in Zurich, Whitestein Technologies presented its new
      "Living Systems(R) Technology Suite." As one of the most comprehensive
      agent platforms currently available, the product offers a Java-based
      Run-time Suite (for J2SE and J2EE environments), an Eclipse-based
      Development Suite, and a Development Methodology based on the
      RUP(Rational Unified Process) with an associated agent-oriented
      modeling language based on UML 2.0.

      New Tack Wins Prisoner's Dilemma
      A group from Southampton University, headed by Nick Jennings, has
      won the 20th-anniversary Iterated Prisoner's Dilemma competition,
      toppling the long-term winner, tit-for-tat, from its throne. They did
      so by submitting 60 programs which dynamically formed master and slave
      relationships allowing the master to take advantage of the slave.

      AKIRA
      The Artificial Knowledge Interface for Reasoning Applications is a
      run-time C++ multithreading and clusterableenvironment able to execute
      Software Agents and a web/systemdevelopment platform to model their
      behaviour. The system core is madeup of a server daemon that answers
      to network programming and AIcomputation requests and that executes
      Agent's instances. A programminginterface based on a C++ MACRO
      LANGUAGE and some automated scripts thatallows to create new Agents
      complete the boundle. The whole system iswritten in C++ with an
      exstensive use of templates and design patternsand integrates
      different C++ open source software, implementing variousaspects of the
      framework. Two soft computing technologies are provided,Fuzzy Logic
      and Fuzzy Cognitive Maps, together with an high levelpsychologically
      valid Goal Oriented Programming Language: BDI (BeliefDesire Intention)
      Model.

        Colored Trails Project
        Colored Trails (CT) is a test-bed for investigating the types of
        decision-making that arise in task settings where the key interactions
        are among goals (of individuals or of groups), tasks required to
        accomplish those goals, and resources. The CT architecture allows
        games to be played by groups comprising people, computer agents, or
        heterogeneous mixes of people and computers. The purpose of the CT
        framework is to enable to design, learn and evaluate players'
        decision-making behavior as well as group dynamics in settings of
        varying complexity.

        Game Theory and Poker
        A Carnegie Mellon University computer scientist has demonstrated
        that you don't necessarily need to know much about poker to create
        a computer program that can play a winning hand of Texas
        Hold'Em. A knowledge of game theory, not the specialized expertise
        of a human poker player, is at the heart of the poker robot called GS1
        developed by Tuomas Sandholm, director of Carnegie Mellon's
        Agent-Mediated Electronic Marketplaces Lab, and graduate student
        Andrew Gilpin.
