AGENTCITIES.RTD Report Summary

Project ID: IST-2000-28385
Funded under: FP5-IST
Country: Spain

"Community" of Agent users' cities

Although not a ''result'' in a classical sense one of the major outcomes of the Agentcities.RTD project has been to create an active, worldwide user community of researchers (academic and industry) applying testbed technologies to their own application areas. The number of organisations involved at the time of writing is approximately 100 with groups all over Europe as well as in Australia, China, Japan, New Zealand and the USA. Activities by many of the teams are supported by new research projects such as Agentcities.ES (Spain), Agentcities.UK (UK), WATAC (Finland), an Australia linkage grant (Australia) and the Europeaid @lis technology network project (Europe and Latin America).

The community is in the process of forming a non-profit body to guide the further development of the Agentcities testbed and enable collaboration between these different projects. The non-profit body and associated resources help users share information about technical problems and act as a forum for reaching consensus on emerging issues.
