The ability to delay intentions and remember them in the proper context is an important ability for general artificial agents. In this paper, we define the functional requirements of an agent capable of fulfilling delayed intentions with its long-term memories. We show that the long-term memories of different cognitive architec- tures share similar functional properties and that these mechanisms can be used to support delayed intentions. Finally, we do a preliminary evaluation of the different memories for fulfilling delayed intentions and show that there are trade-offs between memory types that warrant further research.
