    Collaborative infrastructures are emerging as one of the key elements to enable collaborative applications for human-centric collaboration. These infrastructures have to provide the system components needed by the collaborative applications and, at the same time, comply with service orientation architectures principles. This paper discuss the main results of the consultation process carried out si... View full abstract»

    In the modern day business world, we see more and more complex collaboration scenarios in which multiple autonomous organizations work together. From a business perspective, we distinguish between horizontal and vertical relationships. We argue that the concept of business process is central in both forms of collaboration. From a technical perspective, we find that multiple technology classes must... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (369 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Software agents are often seen as flexible goal-driven software technology suitable for dynamic environments such as business ecosystems. The inherently open and unpredictable nature of such environments, however, renders unsuitable many widely used agent design mechanisms, such as agent interaction protocols. This paper describes an approach which addresses the need for flexible inter-agent inter... View full abstract»

    In this paper present a multi-agent framework for integrating the emergent technology of the interactive digital television with new types of services to support the cooperative activities of different types of virtual communities. As an example of such kind of service we present a community game, in which we have a real-time interaction between two DTV users, and an online auction, in which altho... View full abstract»

    Territorial emergency scenarios imply several interesting issues with regard to the development of distributed applications and systems. From complexity to dynamism and unpredictability, these issues must be faced with appropriate paradigms and tools, which must grant flexibility and adaptability. In this paper, we apply concepts and abstractions from the service-oriented computing paradigm and fr... View full abstract»

    This paper presents the E, F, I approach for the development of a contextual definition of a Web service. E, F, and I stand for environment, feature, and interaction, respectively. By default, a Web service resides in an environment E where it acts and reacts. In this environment E, the Web service exposes its features F to peers or other components for awareness and visibility purposes. Finally, ... View full abstract»

    Within service-oriented business environments, the non-routine processing of requests requires a greater degree of social interaction and learning to elicit an effective response. Specific practices arise and evolve through these cooperative interactions, however traditional enterprise systems are often `closed' and do not support the evolution of practices within a network of practitioners.

    In this paper we present a trust-oriented method that can be used when building P2P recommender systems. We discuss its benefits in comparison to centralized solutions, its requirements, its pitfalls and how these can be overcome. We base the formation of trust on evidential reasoning and designed with ease of adoption by existing infrastructures in mind. The paper includes a first analysis of per... View full abstract»

    P2P systems are a great solution to the problem of distributing resources. The main issue of P2P networks is that searching and retrieving resources shared by peers is usually expensive and does not take into account similarities among peers. In this paper we present preliminary simulations of PROSA, a novel algorithm for P2P network structuring, inspired by social behaviours. Peers in PROSA self-... View full abstract»

    Peer-to-peer architecture is currently an attractive solution for facilitating the use of collaboration software without any server. Multicasting is usually proposed for group communication, such as IP multicasting, which is the most efficient way to disseminate collaboration data as it eliminates traffic redundancy and improves bandwidth utilization. But due to scalability and deployment issues, ... View full abstract»

    Peer-to-peer networks exist with the volunteering cooperation of various entities on the Internet. Their self-structure nature has the important characteristic that they make no use of central entities to run as coordinators and the benefits of this cooperation can be enjoyed equally by all the members of the community with the assumption that they all make right use of the protocol. In this study... View full abstract»

    Distributed and collaborative applications are rapidly converging towards the adoption of a computing paradigm based on service-oriented architectures, according to which an application results from the composition of a set of services in execution on networked server hosts. In this context, a major challenge for collaborative businesses and application service providers is to provide services wit... View full abstract»
