    Estimating collective state is an important component of many distributed systems, but has inherent challenges in balancing the availability of estimates against their accuracy. In this paper, we analyze the error bounds and dynamics of a commonly used family of self-stabilizing state estimation algorithms based on spanning trees. We find that in the worst case transients can duplicate values lead... View full abstract»

  • Model-Driven Engineering of Decentralized Control in Cyber-Physical Systems

    Self-adaptation is nowadays recognized as an effective approach to manage the complexity and dynamics inherent to cyber-physical systems, which are composed of deeply intertwined physical and software components interacting with each other. A self-adaptive system typically consists of a managed subsystem and a managing subsystem that implements the adaptation logic by means of the well established... View full abstract»

  • Parameterisation and Optimisation Patterns for MAPE-K Feedback Loops

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):13 - 18
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (262 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Self-adaptive systems employ feedback loops to cope with possibly unpredictable environment changes. These feedback loops not only have to capture a suitable adaptation logic, but also have to adhere to non-functional constraints like timing and qualities like precision. Several design options influence these aspects. However, they are often not explicitly accessible in feedback loops and may inte... View full abstract»

  • Towards a Domain Specific Language for Engineering Collective Adaptive Systems

    Heterogeneous agents that cooperate to accomplish collective tasks constitute Collective Adaptive Systems (CAS). Engineering a CAS not only involves the definition of the individual agents, but also their roles in achieving a collective task and adaptation strategies to counteract to environmental changes. Current solutions for specifying CAS typically tackle the problem at a low level of abstract... View full abstract»

    Engineering resilient distributed systems remains extremely challenging, particularly in mapping from collective specifications to individual device behavior. Aggregate programming aims to address this problem using a computational field abstraction to provide inherent guarantees of resilience, scalability, and safe composition. These capabilities are provided, however, by an expressive but terse ... View full abstract»

  • The Principled Violation of Policy: Norm Flexibilization in Open Self-Organising Systems

    Open systems are often submitted to rules and norms in an attempt to guarantee its well functioning and prevent selfish (e.g. free-riding) or unsustainable (e.g. tragedy of the commons) behaviour. Associated to the norms, there is usually also a sanctioning structure responsible to prevent and punish non-compliance enforcing conformity. Without disregarding the importance of these structures, we i... View full abstract»

    Future smart computing environments will heavily rely on the collaboration of services, which are dynamically interconnected to Smart Service Systems in order to develop their full potential. Such computing environments are coined by a high degree of distribution and decentralization rendering a centralized control of service composition and system adaptation infeasible. Self-organizing Software S... View full abstract»

  • For Flux Sake: The Confluence of Socially- and Biologically-Inspired Computing for Engineering Change in Open Systems

    This position paper is concerned with the challenge of engineering multi-scale and long-lasting systems, whose operation is regulated by sets of mutually-agreed, conventional rules. The core of the problem is that there are multiple, inter-dependent dimensions of flux, with numerous contextual factors to take into account. These dimensions of flux include, on the one hand, the set of rules itself;... View full abstract»
