Every autonomous software component could be considered an agent. Researchers have actively studied agents for many years due to the advantages they offer to many research domains in computer science. Intelligent agents offer more, since they are able to be adapted to the users’ needs and their environment. Nowadays, agents are the carrier of computational intelligence in
every aspect of research. They are enhanced by intelligent techniques taken from various
research domains such as Fuzzy Set Theory, Swarm Intelligence, Ontological and Approximate Reasoning, and Machine Learning. The combination of the autonomous and adaptive nature of agents with the intelligence that can be provided by the aforementioned techniques could lead to
collaborative multi-agent systems that offer more efficient pervasive applications for users. Developers will have the appropriate tools for the creation of intelligent and adaptive pervasive applications utilizing state-of-the- art techniques. The main focus of this book will be on certain theories and the practical applications that use intelligent agents acting based on computational intelligence techniques found in other domains of Computer Science. This book
will record recent developments in this field. Of special importance will be the adoption of Swarm Intelligence and Fuzzy Logic in multi-agent systems providing the means for knowledge representation, reasoning, inference and consensus decision making.

Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
* Agents in:
- Electronic Markets and Auctions
- Intelligent Systems
- Semantic Web
- Multimedia Systems
- Automated Planning Systems
- Data Mining and Information Retrieval Systems
- Pervasive Computing
