    Service-oriented computing (SOC) and Web services (WS) provide a flexible computing platform for electronic business and commerce. Introducing policy-based computing to service-oriented business systems adds another dimension of flexibility and security. While service composition and re-composition in service-oriented business systems allow major system reconstruction, policy-based computing can b... View full abstract»

    Cost and efficiency are important incentives for academic oriented collaboratories, where researchers and analysts can work and experiment with advanced remote equipment. Such collaboratories are not suitable for industrial use, because they include experimental instruments instead of of-the-shelf instruments, and because industry requires other security and reliability implementation.

  • Market agents with a sense for mechanisms

    Publication Year: 2005, Page(s):34 - 41
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (437 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    When software agents act on markets they typically face a predetermined market mechanism. Their strategies are a priori tailored by the agent designer to suit the market mechanism at stake. So, the market mechanisms are only considered and examined at design time. In this paper, we present an approach to how agents themselves can grasp market mechanisms at runtime, directly derive a valid interact... View full abstract»

  • Enable efficient stage construction for replication based fault-tolerant execution of mobile agent

    Publication Year: 2005, Page(s):42 - 47
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (206 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Reliability as well as fault-tolerance is a fundamental issue for the development of robust mobile agent system. A number of research works is done in these areas. Some researchers adopt the use of spatial replication based approach since it can reduce blocking possibility of mobile agent execution. Unfortunately, this fault-tolerance scheme is not cost effective because it incurs great costs of t... View full abstract»

    Workflow management systems (WfMSs) are software systems used to automate, coordinate and streamline business processes of organizations. Most existing research on WfMSs has been focused on workflows based on well-structured and well-behaved business processes. Although its importance has been recognized, only recently, modeling and handling of workflow exceptions has been tackled by the workflow ... View full abstract»

    Recently a new model agent-based e-commerce system was proposed, in which rule-based mechanism representation was combined with lightweight modular mobile agent design. Furthermore, need for agent mobility as the optimal solution to satisfy user needs was discussed. The aim of this paper is to introduce UML formalizations of most important agents that appear in the model system as well as presenta... View full abstract»

    Existing design methods used for developing Web-centric systems are mostly adapted from methods for designing traditional software systems. Web-centric systems however differ from traditional software systems, in terms of both organizational and technical characteristics. Effective design methods for Web-centric systems need to address these characteristics specific to Web-centric systems. This pa... View full abstract»

    As XML formats have been widely adopted for representing business documents both within and across enterprises, XML to XML translation becomes a common and critical component for business process integration. Due to limitations of popular approaches such as XSLT for XML translations, we designed a model driven development framework for XML to XML translation with the additional benefits of code re...

    Service-oriented computing (SOC) is thought to be an effective way to tackle complex Web-based business collaborations between enterprises in e-business environment, but in practice it didn't reach the expectation. Current researches mainly focus on technological aspects, such as service publication, discovery, binding, and composition, etc, while lack in effective ways to support service identifi...

    The agility of modeling business process simulation (BPS) is required by virtual enterprises. Firstly with some new concepts, such as the atomic business process simulation model (BPSM) and the business process simulation federation (BPSF) etc., a frame of business process simulation model for virtual enterprises (VE-BPSM) is presented. Business processes of a member enterprise are classified into... View full abstract»

    We explore ways to alleviate the current information explosion with an emphasis on organizing the abundance of legitimate (non-SPAM) emails that typical users receive daily. Our approach is to use information about the tasks implied by email message content along with context information about the environment of the message recipient. We focus on machine generated emails associated with workflow p... View full abstract»

    Uncertainty always exists as an unavoidable factor when developing context-aware applications for pervasive computing environments. In this paper, we propose a unified context model to support representation and reasoning about uncertain context. Our unified context model extends the existing, de-facto ontology-based context models with probabilistic models to support probabilistic reasoning. Espe... View full abstract»

    Designing a dialogue strategy for speech-enabled mobile commerce is a significant challenge due to the context. This paper introduces a hybrid dialogue strategy to overcome the inflexibility of application-directed interactions while avoiding the significant recognition difficulty of a full mixed-initiative style. The system uses N-gram grammars to govern the recognition at the request segment of ... View full abstract»
