The objective of this workshop was to bring together key researchers from all areas pertinent to mobile agents, for a day of discussions.  We invited selected experts from the field to present specific issues.  After each 30-minute presentation, we moderated a 30-minute discussion on that issue.

The themes for this year's meeting were scalability and fault-tolerance in mobile-agent systems.

Speakers included:

Co-located with ASA/MA'99 : The Joint Symposium ASA/MA'99
         First International Symposium on Agent Systems and Applications (ASA'99)
