Web Services Session at the IVOA Interoperability Meeting, 12-16 May 2003

I presented a short talk about the eSTAR project, and the implications of the technologies emerging from this work on Web and Grid Services, at the Interoperability Meeting at Cambridge in May.

eSTAR: Intelligent Agents and Web Services

The eSTAR Project is a programme to build a prototype robotic telescope network. Intelligent Agent technology has proved to be a vital part of this project, providing unified access to archive data, to telescopes and to bibliographic data by carrying out resource discovery, data mining and observing tasks. We discuss details of agent technology, and outline why we believe that the main user of the proposed Grid will be software agents rather than human astronomers. We also discuss the the implications for web and grid services, with agents being both consumers and providers of such services.
