Abstract

We envision the integration of the concepts of virtual communities, electronic markets, and ubiquitous wireless services into agent-enhanced mobile virtual communities which we call AMV-communities, a set of which form the AMV-community-space. We present concepts for an AMV-community modelled with RM-ODP Enterprise Viewpoint concepts, and outline an architecture of AMV-communities using software agents attached to roles. We also illustrate how we cope with disconnected computing by using agents and meta-policy rules.
