To the FIPA Home Page FIPA Specifications

FIPA specifications represent a collection of standards which are intended to promote the interoperation of heterogeneous agents and the services that they can represent, see this paper for an overview of the FIPA approach.

In 2002, FIPA completed a process of standardising a sub-set of all its specifications. The sub-set of 25 specifications that made it to standardisation stage is found here.

The complete set of specifications including the ones that did not or have not yet made it to standardisation can be viewed in terms of different categories: agent communication, agent transport, agent management, abstract architecture and applications. Of these categories, agent communication is the core category at the heart of the FIPA multi-agent system model.

There are several alternative viewpoints of the specifications, see the repository link for more details.
