In questa edizione del workshop una Sessione speciale (Sessione Demo) sara'

dedicata alla  presentazione di  prototipi di  sistemi  software basati su agenti. 


Interventi della Sessione Demo

AgentService in a hand  
Andrea Passadore, Alberto Grosso, Mauro Coccoli, Antonio Boccalatte
In this paper we present AgentService Mobile:
an infrastructure aimed to the execution of agents on devices
with limited resources. The mobile device plays the role of a
client which consumes a set of services exposed by the
AgentService platform. This is the entry of AgentService in a
SOA context, with the main goal to open the multi-agent
platform to the outside, by using the most recent service
oriented technologies.

Design and Development of Intentional Systems with PRACTIONIST Studio
Angelo Marguglio, Giuseppe Cammarata, Susanna Bonura, Giuseppe Francaviglia, Michele Puccio, Vito Morreale
In this paper we present PRACTIONIST Studio,
which is an integrated design and development environment
for BDI agent-based systems, providing facilities and tools to
represent the concepts and intentional elements underlying such
a model as well as several common features offered by UMLbased
PRACTIONIST Studio aims at bridging the gap between the
increasing trend of developing BDI-based multi-agent systems
and the availability of tools for their design. It supports developers
from early requirements analysis to automatic code
More in detail, we first give an overview of the modelling editors
provided with PRACTIONIST Studio. Then some fragments
of the modelling and development approach when applied to a
real-world implementation are presented. Such a complex system
is the PSTS (PRACTIONIST Stock Trading System), which is
aimed to monitor investors’ stock portfolio by managing risks
and profit and supporting decisions for on-line stock trading, on
the basis of investors’ trading rules and their risk attitude.


Supporting the Design of Self-Organizing Ambient Intelligent Systems Through Agent-Based Simulation 
Stefania Bandini, Andrea Bonomi, Giuseppe Vizzari
The ambient intelligence scenario depicts electronic
environments that are sensitive and responsive to the presence
of people. The aims of this kind of system is not necessarily
to provide some form of electronic service to its users, but also
to enhance the everyday experience of people moving inside the
related physical environment. For this second type of application,
computer simulation represents a useful way to envision the
behaviour of responsive environments without actually bringing
them into existence in the real world. This paper will describe
the simulation of an adaptive illumination facility, a physical
environment endowed with a set of sensors that perceive the
presence of humans (or other entities such as dogs, bicycles,
cars) and interact with a set of actuators (lights) that coordinate
their state to adapt the ambient illumination to the presence and
behaviours of its users. This system is made up of a model managing
the self-organization of the adaptive illumination facility
and an agent–based model to simulate pedestrian dynamics in
the physical environment in which the system is deployed.
