Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Soft Computing book series (AINSC, volume 7)


A specification of generic infrastructure created by a mobile agent platform is presented. On the basis of the specification, an approach to agent interoperability is introduced. The approach is bases on agent interface to environment proposed as a minimal standard needed to achieve full interoperability.
