Abstract

PUMAS is a framework based on agents which provides nomadic users with relevant and adapted information. Using PUMAS, information delivered to nomadic users is adapted according to, on the one hand, their preferences and history in the system and, on the other hand, the limited capacities of their Mobile Devices (MDs). This framework is composed of four Multi-Agent Systems (MAS, Connection MAS, Communication MAS, Information MAS and Adaptation MAS) for handling adaptation. In this paper, we illustrate how the PUMAS agents augment user queries with information about her/his characteristics and those of her/his MD and, how the Router Agent (which belongs to the Information MAS) redirects the user queries towards the different Web based Information System (WIS) which contain all or part of the information for answering them and which execute on servers or MDs.
