Integrating Discrete Event and Process-Level Simulation for Training in the I-X Framework
The aim of this paper is to describe I-Sim, a simulation tool that is a fully integrated part of the underlying agent framework, I-X. I-Sim controls a discrete event simulator, based on the same activity model that is ...
The Application of Advanced Knowledge Technologies for Emergency Reponse
Making sense of the current state of an emergency and of the response to it is vital if appropriate decisions are to be made. This task involves the acquisition, interpretation and management of information. In this paper ...

Planning and Choosing: Augmenting HTN-Based Agents with Mental Attitudes.
(IEEE Computer Society, 2007-11)
This paper describes a new agent framework that fuses an HTN planner, through its underlying conceptual model, with the mental attitudes of the BDI agent architecture, thus exploiting the strengths of each. On the one hand, ...

I-Rescue: A Coalition Based System to Support Disaster Relief Operations
(ACTA Press, 2003-09)
I-Rescue is a research programme that aims to develop knowledge-based tools for disaster relief domains. One important aspect of the I-Rescue development is to highlight the requirements regarding the collaborative activities ...
Constraints and AI Planning
(IEEE Computer Society, 2005)
Tackling real-world problems often requires to take various types of constraints into account. Such constraint types range from simple numerical comparators to complex resources. This article describes how planning techniques ...
Planning with Templates
(IEEE Computer Society, 2005)
When we talk about planning with templates,we mean standard operating procedures we've learned or been trained to use for solving typical problems and as a starting point for solving novel problems. These structures ...
The Helpful Environment: distributed agents and services which cooperate
Imagine a future environment where networks of agents - people, robots and software agents - interact with sophisticated sensor grids and environmental actuators to provide advice, protection and aid. The systems will be ...
Applying KAoS Services to Ensure Policy Compliance for Semantic Web Services Workflow Composition and Enactment
In this paper we describe our experience in applying KAoS services to ensure policy compliance for Semantic Web Services workflow composition and enactment. We are developing these capabilities within the context of two ...
