This panel addresses the perspective that agents and workflow can be seen as an evolution of components and scripting. There are several ways in which agents can be used to perform or support a workflow, and several ways in which workflow can be used to orchestrate or control the interactions between agents. The panelists explore several of these connections and various applications of agents and workflow. They discuss some of these relationships between agents and workflow, and propose opportunities for research and practice.
