Description INTRODUCTION Our research focuses on techniques, which enable us to communicate with software agents. While much of the early focus on decision aids has been on supporting the individual [1], we examine the middle ground of individually controlled software agents used in team tasks. In recent years, the approach used to solve complex problems has shifted from developing large, integrated legacy software systems, to that of developing small, autonomous, intelligent software components that can interact with humans, with other software components, and different data sources. These agents may provide specialized or periodic information from certain information sources, or may perform some task or service based on the information they are given. The choice of task agent and the approach used by the interface agent to interact with the human can affect the behavior and utility of the agent team. This choice will not only affect the overall performance of the team,
