Some thoughts on adopting the Multi-Agent Protocol (MAP) Language to coordinating Web Services

Adam Barker

My talk will briefly overview the relevant areas of the recent e-science workflows conference, and address two or three of the standards that are proposed to coordinate web services. I will then discuss my experience and thoughts of adopting the Multi-Agent Protocol (MAP) Language to coordination/workflow scenarios and some of the potential problems with this method. I would then like to bounce a few thoughts around, which are possible conclusions for my MRes.
