During past years we have developed the MOMIS (Mediator envirOnment for Multiple Information Sources) system for the integration of data from structured and semi-structured data sources.In this paper we propose some preliminary considerations about one feasible extension of the system, intended to improve some of the functionalities by exploiting intelligent and mobile agents. The new framework is named a MIKS (Mediator agent for Integration of Knowledge Sources).
