Journal of Internet Technology (SCI-E)
Special Issue on Agent Technology in Cyberspace

Theme and Scope

Many agents now exist in our life, searching agents help us find
resources which we are interesting in and/or feel useful to ourselves;
backup agents help us backup important data and documents daily,
weekly, or monthly; spam-filter agents help us block malicious pop-up
windows when we are surfing on the Internet; anti-virus agents secure
our computers and data from worms, virus, and other on-purposed
attacks; and learning companion agents and virtual tutor agents help
us in lifelong learning process. This special issue is going to
recruit those researches regarding using software agents, intelligent
agents, and multi-agent systems to assist users in cyberspace, e.g.
Internet, mobile networks, and virtual worlds include chat rooms,
discussion forums, web conferencing software, computer games and video
games. This special issue will be attractive to both Intelligent
Systems and Computational Engineering researchers, more than that,
this issue can be very
interesting to ordinary people to know how agent technology could
affect our lives in the future. The trend of using agents is becoming
more discernable and we can foresee that agents exist in
multidiscipline and various application areas..
