    The paper focuses on the formal aspects of the DIPLODOCUS environment. DIPLODOCUS is a UML profile intended for the modeling and verification of real-time and embedded applications meant to be executed on complex Systems-on-Chip. Application tasks and architectural elements (e.g., CPUs, bus, memories) are described with a UML-based language, using an open-source toolkit named TTool. Those descript... View full abstract»

    Peer-to-Peer (P2P) applications such as BitTorrent occupy actually a dominant part of the Internet traffic. However, they don't take into consideration the importance of the large traffic volumes exchanged between Autonomous Systems (ASs). This constrains Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to restrict BitTorrent connections in a way of decreasing their peering costs. The difficulty in implementing ... View full abstract»

    In highly available systems, continuous load balancing in the presence of failure is essential to avoid performance degradation. The Availability Management Framework (AMF) is a middleware service that manages the availability of the applications' services by coordinating their provision among the application's redundant components. The application's components that collaborate to provide a servic... View full abstract»

    An approach is presented for flexible support of devices in smart homes, meeting the needs of both home automation and telecare. Device services are introduced as a generalisation of sensor fusion, allowing ready customisation of how sensor inputs and actuator outputs are mapped to each other. Low-level management of devices is supported, but integrated with the high-level use of goals and policie... View full abstract»

    Anticipatory cognitive mechanisms have been investigated so far in gaze control or in simple robot navigation. This is in order to build cognitive systems endowed with the ability to predict the outcome of their actions. However, research on the actual benefit of anticipatory behavior in Ambient Intelligence (AmI) for user assistance is still in its infancy. This paper proposes some use cases to i...

    The lack of infrastructure and dynamic nature of mobile ad hoc networks demand new networking strategies to be implemented in order to provide efficient end-to-end communication. Some researches have been proposed to organize the network into groups called clusters and use different routing protocols for inter and intra clusters to propagate an information. But with these solutions, the network fi... View full abstract»

    Distributed real-time architecture of an embedded system is often described as a set of communicating components. Such a system is data flow (for its description) and time-triggered (for its execution). This work fits in with these problematics and focuses on the control of the time compatibility of a set of interdependent data used by the system components. The architecture of a component-based s... View full abstract»

    Web services registries play an important role in service oriented applications. They constitute the market where services consumers go to search for a desired Web service. With the proliferation of Web services registries, finding an adequate registry has become a complex task for a service requester. In this paper we propose a semantic model to describe Web services registries (WSRD). WSRD descr... View full abstract»

    Nowadays, Web services are considered as new and attracting distributed approach of application/services integration over the Internet. As the number of Web Services is exponentially growing and expected to do so for the next decade, the need for categorizing and/or classifying Web Services is very crucial for their success and the success of the underlying SOA. Categorization aims at systematizin... View full abstract»

    How can proper services be delivered and composed to satisfy the user's intention turns out to be a major research issue in service oriented systems. This paper proposes a solution enhancing service composition based on a model of the user's intention and a set of service patterns. The core hypothesis of this research is that the composition mechanism may be guided by a model of user's intentions.... View full abstract»

    In wireless networks formed of battery-powered nodes, energy consumption is a major concern. On the communication side, energy can be saved by switching transceivers to idle or power-down mode when not needed. To this end, duty cycling protocols located at MAC level have been devised. These protocols have in common that they define modified CSMA/CA schemes, and that they assume the availability of... View full abstract»

    This paper discusses a general solution to provide quality of service (QoS) in heterogeneous wireless networks. The mechanisms we mainly discuss in this paper is resource management in a WiMAX-WiFi heterogenous wireless network within the context of an automated highway system (AHS). We show how different mechanisms within each network can be combined in order to insure the required QoS. View full abstract»

    Ubiquitous computing environments provide a wide range of new challenges and possibilities in Distributed Systems. Among these, collaborative activities involving several users present some complex issues. These activities are very dynamic and imply heterogeneous communications and devices, and therefore adaptive solutions are required. Moreover, context has to be taken into account in order to pr...
