The technology of intelligent agents and multi-agent systems shows great potential for dealing with a range of difficult software engineering problems. But if this potential is to be realised, then serious attention must be given to engineering approaches to building agent systems. This purpose of this paper is to direct attention at these issues. It considers how we might specify, implement, and verify agent systems.
