    The widespread deployment of tagging systems and sensors has resulted in huge streams of events that are automatically captured and must be processed by monitoring and reactive applications. Simple observation events are further aggregated and composed and used to derive complex events of higher level of abstraction, often by enriching the observed events with information from external sources. Th... View full abstract»

    Software architectures have emerged as a promising approach for managing, analyzing, building, integrating, reusing, and improving the quality of software systems. Specifically, early design decisions can be improved by the analysis of architectural models for different properties. This paper addresses the problem of estimating the reliability of data-flow architectures before the construction of ... View full abstract»

    In the World-Wide Web context, availability of software components increases the possibility of applying a reuse approach in software development. Thus, component retrieval is a key problem, both for software industry and for end-users. Several problems should be solved: components formalisms are very different from one source to another, knowledge for guiding components retrieval is often poor an... View full abstract»

    This paper focuses on the development of service-oriented information systems. One of the main challenges facing service-oriented computing is providing methodologies that support the specification and design of IS behavior, and allowing software engineers to move from the earlier stages of business analysis to its final step of implementation. Model Driven approaches provide with models, transfor... View full abstract»

    In this paper we present the baseline of our software product line. We explain the construction of the Baseline at the domain engineering stage, and demonstrate how it is used at the application engineering phase. We describe how to create the stored software assets (represented by models). In our approach, the baseline contains both the assets and the processes for building applications in a spec...

    This paper is a report on the research being conducted at the Universidad Rafael Landivar of Guatemala on the development of a design methodology for user interfaces and interactive systems in general. At this stage of the research we tried to test the methodology's fundamental supposition: that every information system is devoted to handle a certain set of objects from the real world and that bas...

    The world of the mobile devices involves restrictive features. Multiple efforts have been done to define the user interface. Here, it is combined a neutral description of the UI with a semantic recovery of information. The focus of this paper is the generation of the containment structure based on the context of the application. The process includes three main tasks: first a fixed division of the ...
