IMPACT (Interactive Maryland Platform for Agents Collaborating Together) provides a platform and environment for agent and software interoperability being developed as a joint, multinational effort with participants from the University of Maryland, the Technische Universität Wien, Bar-Ilan University, the University of Koblenz, and the Univesita di Torino. In this invited talk, I will describe the overall architecture of the IMPACT system, and outline how this architecture (i) allows agents to be developed either from scratch, or by extending legacy code-bases (ii) allows agents to interact with one another, (iii) allows agents to have a variety of capabilities (reactive, autonomouns intelligent, mobile, replicating) and behaviors, and (iv) how IMPACT provides a variety of infrastructural services that may be used by agents to interact with one another.
