This volume contains papers read at the 7th International Workshop entitled "Intelligent Agents: Decision-Support and Planning", Udine, Italy, Sep 30th - Oct 2nd, 2004. All papers were reviewed after they were presented, and revised for final publication. As its preceding ones, this workshop took place under the auspices of the International School for the Synthesis of Expert Knowledge (ISSEK) and was held in the picturesque Palazzo del Torso of the Centre International des Sciences Mecaniques (CISM), Udine, see picture below. CISM location " Palazzo del Torso " The workshop was jointly organised by Prof. G. Delia Riccia (University of Udine), Dr. D. Dubois ( CNRS and University of Toulouse III), Prof. R. Kruse (University of Magdeburg), and Prof. H .- J. Lenz (Free University Berlin). As the workshop was an invitational one, there was no need for a call for contributed papers. Contrarily, the four organisers recruited research workers from Europe who have had an impact in the last decade on "Intelligent Agents: Decision-Support and Planning".
