The concept of Internet of Things (IoT) aims to unite physical, virtual and social objects possessing embedded computational and interactive capabilities within an integrated system set up over communication infrastructure of Internet and enriched with full access to Web 2.0 cloud-based semantic information space. Any IoT application is distributed in its nature. The IoT system can consist of a large number of distributed autonomous entities solving, in parallel, many various tasks based on intensive interaction among its constituents. For example, industrial IoT applications can comprise tens of thousands and even many more intensively communicating autonomous heterogeneous objects including data and services, software and information objects of social networks together with co-existing human societies, network of sensors, various objects of real word as well as objects of clouds. Altogether, they constitute a networked meta-object with the nodes interacting on peer-to-peer basis generating an emergent behavior.
Intuitively, it is about evidently that the technology relying on distributed autonomous software agents situated within shared software, information and communication environments best ﬁts the needs of IoT applications as a framework for conceptualization, architecture for software structuring and as an implementation technology. Indeed, agent-based technology is oriented to the class of applications that can be split into relatively independent modules with autonomous internal computations, are and not visible for other modules, whereas module dependencies are implementable through agents message exchange. These properties of multi-agent systems (MAS) motivate IT-professionals to use the MAS framework and technology as potentially productive approach to the design and implementation of IoT applications. Such view on MAS framework and technology is called Internet of Agents (IoA).
The proposed workshop/special session aims to bring together the IoT and MAS specialists to exchange the ideas and to share the experience accumulated in use of MAS framework and technology to design and implementation of IoT applications including industrial ones.
