    Nowadays, biologists use biological data sources and tools to find relevant information for their research. However, with the explosion of the amount of online accessible data and tools, finding the relevant sources and retrieving the relevant information is not an easy task. Further, often information from different sources needs to be integrated. The vision of a semantic Web alleviates these dif... View full abstract»

    This paper addresses the need for strong security guarantees in increasingly dynamic and flexible information technology (IT) environments. It applies time-tested security principles, architectural patterns, and continuous improvement constructs to weave security controls and assurances more systemically into an IT environment. Using a building block approach and a focus on iterative refinement, o... View full abstract»

  • A two-level approach for ontology management in multi-agent systems

    Publication Year: 2005, Page(s):21 - 26
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (264 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The work presented in this paper is an attempt to bridge two co-existing realities: semantic Web and multi-agent systems. Agents should be enhanced with tools and mechanisms in order to autonomously achieve this strategic and ambitious objective. In this paper, we focus on what we consider the central issue when moving towards the vision of semantic multi-agent systems: the ontology support. Due t... View full abstract»

    The semantic Web enables business-to-business in new ways. In this context, organizations need to make use of the new opportunities that the semantic Web technology provides. However, this should be done without major requirements on the organization. To this aim, we propose an agent-based model for integrating the usage of the semantic Web (represented as Web services) into an organization's work... View full abstract»

    This paper deals with coordination in the context of loose inter-organizational workflow (IOW). The aim of IOW is to support the cooperation between business processes running in different organizations. Loose IOW refers to occasional cooperation between organizations, free of structural constraints, where the organizations involved and their number are not predefined. This paper shows that the ag...

    Users' environments are going to be disseminated of intelligent devices and sensors that coordinate each other to help users in their activities. This leads to what is called "ambient intelligence", i.e., environments that exhibits a certain degree of intelligence. Software agents are the natural candidates for this kind of task, thanks to their autonomy and the capability to act on behalf of thei... View full abstract»

    Collaboration @ work was first defined in the Collaboration @ work report 2004 as "collaboration among individuals engaged in a common task to achieve a shared objective using collaboration technologies". At that time the focus was on collaboration services providing functionalities at middleware level which could be reusable at the application level. Reflecting this focus, the Research European U...

    BSCW and Groove (G. Neworks, 2005) have become the two de-facto standards for collaboration over the Internet. They offer a wealth of functionalities, support a variety of possible collaboration styles, and are applied frequently in research and business projects. While being useful and powerful for standard scenarios, they suffer from some problematic aspects if support for distributed ad-hoc and... View full abstract»

    The globalization of businesses and the cooperation between organizations have brought on an ever increased need for providing support for distributed collaborations. In this paper, we argue that existing peer-to-peer frameworks, although suitable for collaborative environments, fail to provide the support for multiple consistency semantics required by modern complex collaborations. We present GRA... View full abstract»

    Conventional team processes in software engineering are typically designed to support face-to-face interactions among stakeholders. This paradigm has changed and distributed software development (DSE) becomes a dominant approach in many settings. Despite the fact that distributed software engineering is inevitable in today's software engineering practice there are still many unsolved issues. This ... View full abstract»

  • Issues on decentralized consistency checking of multi-lateral collaborations

    Decentralized consistency checking of multi-lateral collaborations is based on propagating local information to trading partners until a fixed point has been reached. However, which information has to be propagated and how to represent this information is a challenge, because the local consistency decisions should derive consistency only if the collaboration is consistent. In this paper, two scena... View full abstract»

    In this paper we introduce our early work on a model dedicated for the monitoring of ubiquitous environments. The model can be used to attach an arbitrary number of sensors onto a wireless/wired network of modules, the modules are distributed over a network and can interact with each other. Each module represents a specialist and communicates with an arbitrary number of other specialists. The mode... View full abstract»

    One of the main challenges in the area of service oriented computing, in general, and of Web services technology, in particular, is the definition of languages and models for the description of choreographies. A choreography defines the collaborations between interacting services: more precisely, it specifies a contract containing a "global" definition of the common ordering conditions and constra...
