This booklet constitutes the completely refereed post-proceedings of the 3 agent-related workshops held through the NetObjectDays overseas convention, NODe 2002, held in Erfurt, Germany, in October 2002.

The 23 revised complete papers awarded with a keynote paper and a pair of abstracts have been rigorously chosen in the course of 2 rounds of reviewing and development. The papers are prepared in topical sections on agent-oriented specifications engineering and specification, agent-oriented software program engineering, reuse, negotiation and conversation, huge complicated structures, e-business, and applications.

Optical Polarizationin Biomedical Applications

Optical Polarization in Biomedical purposes introduces key advancements in optical polarization tools for quantitative reports of tissues, whereas providing the speculation of polarization move in a random medium as a foundation for the quantitative description of polarized mild interplay with tissues.

Advances in Metaheuristics for Hard Optimization

Many advances were made lately in metaheuristic tools, from concept to purposes. The editors, either major specialists during this box, have assembled a group of researchers to give a contribution 21 chapters equipped into components on simulated annealing, tabu seek, ant colony algorithms, general-purpose reviews of evolutionary algorithms, purposes of evolutionary algorithms, and diverse metaheuristics.

Location Theory: A Unified Approach

Even supposing smooth situation concept is now greater than ninety years previous, the focal point of researchers during this zone has been as a rule challenge orientated. besides the fact that, a typical concept, which retains the fundamental features of classical place versions, continues to be lacking. This monograph addresses this factor. a versatile situation challenge referred to as the Ordered Median challenge (OMP) is brought.

There exists several software engineering approaches [24] which try to fill the gap of MAS analysis and development life-cycle. These approaches differ in many ways like for example: the notation employed, the basic concepts used and the presence or absence of a methodology. The notation may be formal or not, in this paper we are interested in formal notations which allow formal specification of MAS and which guide implementation phase. Indeed, formal specification approaches may authorize validation and verification of the specification.

Starting from our common understanding of the Tropos tool problem, as described in the previous section, the following list of more detailed issues to be addressed may be provided: – Fundamental features of Tropos: • software engineer support for all the phases of the software development process (at least the first four); • support for the transformational approach as in [3]; • goal/plan analysis [16,8] and non-functional analysis [6]. – System management: • model and views storage; • multi-users management.
