Dear Friends, 

On OpenMath workshop in Talahassee I proposed KQML (the Knowledge Query and
Management Language; a standart Agent communication language) as a basis
for the protocol layer of OpenMath.

In Eindhoven the question of designing a protocol layer for OM reappeared
and KQML was mentioned independently in this context, since KQML is an
independent standard for Agent communication that has been in use for a
couple of years. 

To make it more compatible with OpenMath, I went ahead and specified an XML
representation of KQML for OpenMath. (see
http://www.ags.uni-sb.de/~omega/www/projects/openmath/kqml for a DTD and

We are planning to use KQML as the protocol for communication between
mathematical services in the OMEGA system (see
http://www.ags.uni-sb.de/~omega) which uses our MathWeb architecture (see
http://www.ags.uni-sb.de/~omega/www/openmath.html) for agent-based
communication among mathematical software systems.

Please have a look at
http://www.ags.uni-sb.de/~omega/www/projects/openmath/kqml and give me
