    In many mission critical applications, one of the central tasks is to obtain aggregate values, such as AVERAGE and SUM, based on which critical conditions can be detected. Immediate measures can subsequently be taken to remove associated risks timely. However, there is no successful work for detecting such critical events energy efficiently. In this paper we propose a novel approach. A fully distr... View full abstract»

    As wireless connectivity is integrated into many handheld devices, streaming multimedia content among mobile ad-hoc peers is becoming a popular application. In this paper, we propose a dynamic service replication algorithm for providing guaranteed continuous streaming services to all nodes in mobile ad-hoc networks (MANETs). First, a MANET is comprised of logical grid hierarchy, and a streaming se... View full abstract»

    Service composition accelerates rapid application development, service reuse, and complex service consummation, thus, quantitative characteristics such as service execution throughput should be evaluated to measure the system performance. Based on Continuous Petri Net, we build differential equation model for service composition. The service behavior can be analyzed from the curves of the solution... View full abstract»

    Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) is a conceptual architecture that was proposed for supporting service-oriented computing. To obtain a successful design and development of service-oriented software, an architectural view model to represent and document various aspects of service-oriented software based on the SOA conceptual template is required. Various architectural view models have been propo... View full abstract»

    Evolvability is essential to adapting to the dynamic and changing requirements in response to the feedback from context awareness systems. However, most of current context models have limited capability in exploring human intentions that often drive system evolution. To support service requirements analysis of real-world applications in distributed service environments, this paper focuses on human... View full abstract»

    Location based services (LBS) are expected to play crucial role in future of e-commerce. Although, LBS consider service provision on the basis of location, but don't take into consideration time aspect and user's interests. We propose incorporation of time-awareness and demand-oriented contexts along with location to develop idea of community pervasive services (CPS).To identify appropriate servic...

    In a structured peer-to-peer (P2P) overlay network, the stability of the entire network will be greatly affected by simultaneous join-in and drop-out of large amount of nodes. Aiming at reducing the overhead of handling this activity, we propose a group-based hierarchically structured overlay network, GSON. GSON is also a structured P2P overlay network using distributed hash table (DHT). In GSON, ... View full abstract»
