1. Book Objectives
In recent years the development of distributed systems especially the Internet has been
influenced heavily by three paradigms: Peer-to-Peer (P2P), Autonomous Agents and Service Orientation. P2P is a class of applications that takes advantage of resources e.g. storage, cycles, content, human presence, available at the edges of the Internet. Moreover, the P2P and Autonomous Agents technologies enable peers to modify the way to achieve their objectives. They address the needs for autonomous agents to support self-organization of highly autonomous peers, load balancing, routing, service discovery,  etc. The benefit of service-oriented architectures (SOA) is their support of loose coupling of software
components, i.e. providing a high degree of interoperability and reuse. Web Services (WSs) are an example of a (SOA) that include three main entities: Consumers, Providers, and Registers of services.
These entities work in concert to provide a loosely coupled computing paradigm. Web Services (WSs)  are self-contained, loosely coupled application modules with well described functionality that can be  published, located and invoked across the web. The growing number of WS lunched in the web raises new  challenges, such as discovery of WS .
The objective of this books is seeks to develop and an understanding of Autonomous P2P Web Service  models and developments. Moreover, it extends the growing literature on the emerging technologies for  Autonomous Agents, P2P Computing and Web Services. The contributor of this book may contribute to one  or more of the following topics or related of Autonomous Agents, P2P Computing and Web Services.  Contributions of research merging these topics are particularly encouraged.
2. Topics

This book includes several chapters related with the following areas: Peer-to-Peer,Autonomous Agents
and Web Services. Topics to be addresses include (but are not limited to):
Autonomous agents and query languages for P2P systems
