Abstract

Autonomous software agents are often claimed to become a new generation of tools facilitating efficient management of information. While a number of possible agent application areas can be found in the literature, support for academic mobility is not one of them. At the same time student mobility is one of the important objectives within the European Union and, as we argue in this paper, software agents could be used to streamline administrative processes involved in setting up student participation and help students that are interested in it as well as administrative units that have to support it. In this paper we introduce an agent system designed to facilitate student mobility, present UML diagrams of agents of that system and discuss an initial implementation of a system-skeleton.
