We sketch a variant of the KGP agent model tailored to support service composition in service-oriented architectures. This allows to handle: user requirements, abstract and concrete workflows, possibly with annotations, inter-agent communication for supporting negotiation and persuasion, consultation of registries. We identify argumentation as core for Service-Oriented Architectures, and ground our work in the context of three concrete scenarios: e-procurement, earth observation, and business migration.
