Software Agents and Web Services

In many software systems, it is advantageous to decompose the processing into relatively independent software agents. In some cases, the decomposition is imposed because different users participate in a decision process. In others, it is required in order to balance the computational load to several processors. At the LIA, research into software agents focuses above all on the decomposition aspect: how can a problem solving process be decomposed so that the agents become as independent as possible?
