Independence, intelligence and interactiveness are making software agents strongly approach the development of advanced service applications for both, pocket and fixed computing devices. In this paper, the authors present an interactions protocol that is used by intelligent agents operating in a dynamic environment. In particular, they focus their research on the situation where a multi-agent system is serving lightweight devices through advanced communication methods (e.g., Bluetooth). Like similar contributions, their interactions protocol provides agents with a monetary system and a mechanism for feedback calculation.
