  abstract =     "With the development of Internet computing and
                 software agent technologies, agent-based electronic
                 commerce (e-commerce) is emerging. Software agents have
                 demonstrated tremendous potential in conducting various
                 tasks in e-commerce. However, when agents are initially
                 created, they have little knowledge and experience with
                 relatively lower capability. They should also strive to
                 adapt themselves to the changing environment. It is
                 advantageous if they have the ability to learn and
                 evolve. This paper addresses evolution of software
                 agents in e-commerce. Agent fitness and life cycle are
                 proposed as evolution mechanisms, and modularised agent
                 structure is introduced to facilitate the evolution
                 process. Genetic Programming (GP) operators are
                 employed to restructure agents in the proposed
                 multi-agent evolution cycle",
