was started in 2001 as a research project of
Nanyang Technological University of Singapore
in collaboration with
Technical University of Braunschweig
The broad goal was to explore and extend networked programming beyond the
traditional client/server paradigm.
My name is
and at the time I was visiting scientist at NTU,
Prof. Heiko Schröder
(NTU Singapore) and
Prof. Manfred Schimmler
I am deeply indepted to both of them for a great time and a
pleasant and innovative way to develop my master thesis.
After the research project was finished, I took over the results and
began polishing the Agentopia framework
under open source license in my spare time.
Although improvements come in quite irregular bursts, the project has
survived the last 8 years, and will continue to do so.
I am happy to receive any feedback, as this is further motivation
for me to go on with the framework.
If you have any questions or comments regarding
please do not hesitate to contact me, preferably by
and I will do my best to accomodate you.
Additional thanks and ACKS go to
Matze Fischer and
for discussing, reading and correcting my concepts and papers,
to Christian Lindig
for supreme mastery of Latex,
and to Martin Schilde
for website advice and motivation.
Thanks to you all.
