The needs of the application domain require that agent-systems be capable of supporting agents that are autonomous, concurrent, communicative and mobile. These systems should therefore be based on models of computation where concurrency has been dealt with explicitly. In order to realize the benefits of the agent-methodologies., it is also necessary to maintain a strong conceptual relevance to the domain of application. AgentSpeak supports nmltiple: autonomous, comnmnicaring agents that also possess properties of persistence.
