In this dissertation we propose Agent Computing Environment ACE as a single technology to solve all the personalization problems listed above. The technology is based on software agents, distributed across the network. Despite the existing proposals, the agents and intended to be imperatively programmed by their owners, to achieve individual personalization goals. The agents may collect the information from distributed and heterogeneous sources, according to current preferences of their owners. At the same time, the agents may automatically adjust their behavior to the environment where they are executed at a moment, as well as to some user-independent restrictions, e.g., communication costs, technical characteristics of the communication channel used at the moment, limitations of end-user hardware, etc. To solve the above-mentioned trade-off between system security and efficiency, a dedicated programming language is proposed for the preparation of user-defined, remotely executed agent code. Several methods for agent management and distribution are proposed, including security checks, run-time code verification, distributed access-rights, and other features related with the security, safety, and efficiency. The thesis of this dissertation is formulated as follows: Agent Computing Environment ACE is a universal approach to personalize access to heterogeneous, distributed information sources.
