Abstract: This paper summarises a presentation made to a meeting on Intelligent Agent Technology organised by the EPSRC Community Club in Advanced Computing Techniques. The paper briefly reviews the needs, objectives and difficulties of standardisation for intelligent agents, then discusses one particular current activity: the Foundation for Intelligent Physical Agents (FIPA). In particular, the FIPA 97 standard is discussed, and the main features of the three key technology areas are introduced. Ongoing working in the FIPA programme is also outlined.
