  • Function Multiverses for Dynamic Variability

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):1 - 5
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (237 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Run-time variability is a necessary mean to adapt to a configuration or state of a system, which can only be determined during execution. However, implementing such dynamic variability oftentimes results in a conglomerate of a highly branched control flow, with negative impacts on performance. In this paper, we present an approach to dynamically adapt a running system to a specific configuration b... View full abstract»

  • A Runtime Variability Mechanism Based on Supertypes

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (473 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Current runtime variability mechanisms are still maturing, and the paradigm of dynamic software product lines demand adequate solutions based on effective dynamic variability mechanisms able to manage the variability at runtime. Today, few approaches have been proposed and tested in real dynamic software products lines. In practice, the solutions suggested can be understood as runtime managers abl... View full abstract»

  • A Matter of the Mix: Integration of Compile and Runtime Variability

    While dynamic software product lines focus on runtime variability, traditional software product lines typically aim at development-time variability. In this paper, we argue that integrating both kinds of binding times into a single variability model can be beneficial for modeling the adaptation space as well as for controlling runtime decision making. We achieve this by a mix of modeling and const... View full abstract»

  • Bitcoin and the Myth of Decentralization: Socio-technical Proposals for Restoring Network Integrity

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):18 - 23
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (340 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Since 2009, the Bitcoin open-source software project has established a commanding presence in the digital currency space as a self-organizing, distributed system. The project stems from a long history of efforts to harness decentralization and progressive cryptography for social good, as espoused by the ethos of the Cypherpunks mailing list on which Bitcoin was first released. However, certain des... View full abstract»

  • Emergent Communities in Socio-cognitive Networks

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):24 - 29
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (756 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    We investigate a recent network model which combines social and cognitive features. Each node in the social network holds a (possibly different) cognitive network that represent its beliefs. In this internal cognitive network a node denotes a concept and a link indicates whether the two linked concepts are taken to be of a similar or opposite nature. We show how these networks naturally organise i... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (670 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The saturation of the physical environment with sensors, the proliferation of personal mobile computing, and the prominence ofArtificial Intelligence in (so-called) 'smart' objects has created new opportunities for the development of socio-technical systems. We are particularly interested in the convergence of people and computational processes (agents) in the creation of digital communities for s... View full abstract»

  • Bottom-Up Norm Adjustment in Open, Heterogeneous Agent Societies

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):36 - 41
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1100 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Open, distributed multi-agent systems with heterogeneous agent societies face the challenge to maintain an appropriate performance level in the presence of bad-behaving agents. An approach to counter the exploiting behaviour of such agents is the use of trust mechanisms. Yet, it is still possible for agents with a more complex behaviour to manipulate and exploit the trust mechanism. In this paper,... View full abstract»

  • Improving Performance of Cloud Key-Value Storage Using Flushing Optimization

    Key-value store is an essential component with an increasing demand in many scale-out environments, including social networks, online retail, and cloud services. Hence, modern key-value storage engines provide many features, including transaction, versioning, replication, etc. In storage engines, transaction processing provides atomicity and durability by using write-ahead logging (WAL), which flu...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (763 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Message queues take a crucial role in a distributed and scalable system by interconnecting loosely-coupled and autonomic computational units. Among the state of art distributed message queue systems, Apache Kafka has been able to achieve high throughput, low latency, and good load-balancing. Recently, we have worked on developing a new data processing framework that can efficiently handle a very l... View full abstract»
