These are the proceedings of the Tenth International Workshop on Cooperative Information Agents (CIA 2006), held at the National eScience Centre, Ed- burgh, UK, September 11 13, 2006. This year, the annual meeting of the IEEE Computer Society Standards Organisation Committee FIPA on Intelligent and Physical Agents was co-located with CIA 2006. In today snetworkedworldof linked, heterogeneous, pervasivecomputer s- tems, devices, andinformationlandscapes, intelligentcoordinationandprovision of relevant added-value information at any time, anywhere, by means of co- erative information agents becomes increasingly important for a variety of - plications. An information agent is a computational software entity that has access to one or multiple heterogeneous and geographically dispersed data and information sources. It pro-actively searches for and maintains information on behalf of its human users or other agents preferably just in time. In other words, it manages and overcomes the di?culties associated with information overload in open, pervasive information and service landscapes.
