    Summary form only given. In an "Internet of services," all people, machines, and goods will have access to it by leveraging the network infrastructure of tomorrow. The Internet will thus offer services for all areas of life and business, such as virtual insurance, online banking and music, and so on. Those services will require a complex services infrastructure including service delivery platforms... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (75 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Summary form only given. The computer science discipline, especially in large scale distributed systems like grids and P2P systems and in high performance computing areas, tends to address issues related to increasingly complex systems, gathering thousands to millions of non trivial components. In this paper, we present two computer science grids: Grid'5000 and DAS3. We describe the motivations, d... View full abstract»

    Web 2.0 and in general novel Web applications are teaching us key problems we should look at, and roadmaps to solutions. Specifically, the Web has made people accustomed to having real time information on everything, and this will definitely apply to process monitoring as well. Real time information at a level of consumption that is meaningful for the various kinds of interested user will be a key... View full abstract»

    Publication Year: 2007, Page(s):9 - 11
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (45 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The fifth "Agent-based Computing for Enterprise Collaboration" workshop at WETICE 2007 focused on the areas of agent interaction protocols and coordination, agent modeling, and agent-based security and trust. The intention of this workshop was to bring together researches in the fields of workflow and software agents as they relate to the context of enterprise collaboration with services. This rep...

  • Middle-Agents Interactions as Finite State Processes: Overview and Example

    Publication Year: 2007, Page(s):12 - 17
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (101 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    We propose the use of finite state process algebra for modeling interactions between requesters, providers and middle-agents in global environments like the Internet. The results are threefold: (i) precise specification of interactions depending on type of middle-agent; (ii) understanding the requirements of parties involved in interactions; (iii) improvement of communication between designers and...

    The increasing domain of service-oriented computing (SOC) and the continued growth of Web services towards globalization create a significant need for the discovery of the most relevant Web services to a business process. As services are abundant, yet scattered, it is unreasonable and impractical to expect an employee to handle the thousands of management tasks desired and/or required on a continu...

    Agents and services are two concepts that more and more are integrating and exploiting the advantages of each other. Agent-oriented methodologies effectively support the development of agent-based system in the different phases. In this paper, we explore how and how much the most common agent-oriented methodologies are also oriented to the development of services. Rather than searching for the "be... View full abstract»

    In an increasingly competitive environment like Virtual Organization; software agents need to be very flexible towards any changes in order to achieve sustainable growth and improve competency. Another way to address this is to form collaboration amongst the agents themselves. Although being in an openly distributed environment where almost anyone can do business with everyone; it is never that st... View full abstract»

  • A Practical Approach to Secure and Trusted Negotiation in MASs

    Publication Year: 2007, Page(s):35 - 40
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (102 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper we present an innovative model of interaction between agents that leads to an increase in the level of trust in negotiation-intensive MASs. In particular, after a brief introduction, we provide in Section 2 an overview of our model and focus on some common problems related to trust and security in real-world negotiations. In Section 3, we address these problems and outline a set of a... View full abstract»

    The coordination of distributed processing is of great interest to a number of research communities. However these research communities, such as those involved in e-science GRIDs and multi-agent systems, view this problem from disparate viewpoints. This paper aims to contribute to the necessary reconciliation of these perspectives. By demonstrating the coordination of processes whether reactive (s... View full abstract»

  • Towards Dynamic Composition of Agent Dialogues

    Publication Year: 2007, Page(s):47 - 50
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (128 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In multi-agent systems, a dialogue represents a coherent sequence of agent messages which bear upon the same subject. In this paper we discuss a flexible and dynamic approach to formalize agent dialogues. Our approach does not require agents to follow a fixed start-to-end sequence of messages in a dialogue to achieve their goals. Instead dialogues are constructed dynamically and progressively base...

    With the miniaturization of computing elements, their in- creasing number, interconnection, and penetration of our daily lives, pervasive computing environments start to be- come more and more complex. This results in an apparent claim for improved coordination mechanisms, to optimize, to enhance effectiveness and eventually to provide the users with a sufficient level of quality. We took this as ... View full abstract»

  • A Bayesian Approach for Disconnection Management in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks

    Publication Year: 2007, Page(s):62 - 67
    Cited by:  Papers (4)

    Mobile Ad-hoc Networks are used in many scenarios (e.g., emergency management) for supporting collaborative work of operators. But this requires either (i) continuous connections, or at least (ii) the possibility to foresee that a device is going out to disconnect (e.g., in order to locally cache important data needed for the following activities, etc.). Therefore a basic problem is how to predict... View full abstract»

    The current Web is based on the REST (representational state transfer) architectural style to guarantee scalability and to decrease complexity. This requires that all interactions are stateless and the communication between client and server is carried out in a synchronous request/response way. However, today's applications are evolving towards more and more dynamics, particularly if we assume tha... View full abstract»

    A new application of the space-based approach is in knowledge coordination. This knowledge is being published on the "Semantic Web" and is concurrently accessed and used by large numbers of agents distributed across the world. Present coordination models assume that the tuples contain plain data, but when knowledge is the focus of the coordination, some aspects of coordination systems must be revi... View full abstract»

    The design and promotion of electronic patient summaries as an instrument to facilitate the pervasive delivery of healthcare is emerging as a key technology in eHealth solutions. From the technical point of view this requires powerful middleware systems supporting interoperability, multi-lingualism, security and patient privacy. In this paper we present a semantic coordination model and describe h... View full abstract»
