Agent-based cloud computing is concerned with the design and development of software agents for bolstering cloud service

constructing software tools and testbeds for cloud resource management. The novel contributions of this work include: 1) developing

effectively adopted for bolstering cloud service negotiation and cloud commerce, and 3) showing that agent-based cooperative problemsolving

that consults a cloud ontology for determining the similarities between providers’ service specifications and consumers’ service

reasoning, compatibility reasoning, and numerical reasoning. To support cloud commerce, this work devised a complex cloud

agents and broker agents, and multiple cloud resource markets between broker agents and provider agents. Empirical results show that

To automate cloud service composition, agents in this work adopt a focused selection contract net protocol (FSCNP) for dynamically

show that using FSCNP and SCTs, agents can successfully compose cloud services by autonomously selecting services.
