With the advances in eLearning technologies and their ever increasing requirements, agent and grid computing technologies have been explored in many ways. The aim of this session is to bring together researchers from these technologies to showcase their research and developments. In doing so, it aims to provide a platform and forum for discussion between technologists and educationalists.

The special issue aim to give a forum to researchers to report on new advances and original research on eLearning technologies with specific focus on software agents and grid computing. Both of these technologies, agents and grids, are becoming widely applied in the eLearing systems. The scope of the special issue will cover both theoretical and applied issues of these technologies in developing the new generations of eLearning technologies.

The special issue topics of interest are, but not limited to:

Agent Technologies:

Agent Architectures for eLearning
Agent Communication
Agent Policies
Ontology

Grid Computing

Architectures for eLearning and cooperative workspaces
Ad Hoc Networks
Protocols for eLearning
Security and data protection
Network optimization

Participation on other aspects of eLearning, e.g. natural language processing for intelligent interfaces and user profiling are equally welcomed and encouraged.
