We introduce the notion of context-based addressing, i.e. the ability to refer to and send messages to a collection of agents based on their current context, without knowing the precise identities of the agents. We describe a simple implementation of context-based addressing for mobile agents using Elvin, a publish-subscribe event notification system, as a proof-of-concept, and to investigate the feasibility of the event-based paradigm for implementing context-based addressing for mobile agents.
