  • Strategic Reorganization in Multi-Agent Systems: Inspired by Intelligent
           Human Organizations
    • Authors: Maryamossadat N. Mahani et al
      Abstract: International Journal of Cooperative Information Systems, Ahead of Print. The field of organizational design in multi-agent systems is still in need of powerful tools and methods for enabling effective design, control, and transformation of organizations of different kinds. In this work, we address the problem of reorganization in a distributed problem solving model as a typical multi-agent system application. We look into adaptation of concepts and theories from social organization theory. In particular, we get insights from Schwaninger's model of Intelligent Human Organizations. To this goal, we implement and utilize a multi-level organizational control model which uses a strategic management and an operative management layer to exert organizational control and also to make interactions between these two levels of control possible. Experimental evaluations are performed using a modified model of pursuit game. The results indicate that the proposed model allows the system to stay ahead of the organizational change, resulting in performance improvements, despite the additional costs associated to reorganization.

  • Social Context as a Service: Managing Adaptation in Collaborative
           Pervasive Applications
    • Authors: Muhammad Ashad Kabir et al
      Abstract: International Journal of Cooperative Information Systems, Ahead of Print. We present a social context as a service (SCaaS) platform for managing adaptations in collaborative pervasive applications that support interactions among a dynamic group of actors such as users, stakeholders, infrastructure services, businesses and so on. Such interactions are based on predefined agreements and constraints that characterize the relationships between the actors and are modeled with the notion of social context. In complex and changing environments, such interaction relationships, and thus social contexts, are also subject to change. In existing approaches, the relationships among actors are not modeled explicitly, and instead are often hard-coded into the application. Furthermore, these approaches do not provide adequate adaptation support for such relationships as the changes occur in user requirements and environments. In our approach, inter-actor relationships in an application are modeled explicitly using social contexts, and their execution environment is generated and adaptations are managed by the SCaaS platform. The key features of our approach include externalization of the interaction relationships from the applications, representation and modeling of such relationships from the domain and actor perspectives, their implementation using a service oriented paradigm, and support for their runtime adaptation. We quantify the platform's adaptation overhead and demonstrate its feasibility and applicability by developing a telematics application that supports cooperative convoy.

  • Architecture Support for Flexible Business Chain Integration Using
           Protocol Adaptors
    • Authors: Ricardo Seguel et al
      Abstract: International Journal of Cooperative Information Systems, Ahead of Print. Business chains increasingly rely on the dynamic integration of business processes of different partners. The interaction constraints that result from the business processes are captured in business protocols. Since the business protocols of each partner support its own way of working, the business protocols can easily mismatch, which hinders organizations from forming a business chain. Such mismatches can be resolved by protocol adaptors. In this paper, we show how protocol adaptors can be used to enable the flexible formation of business chains. For different types of business chains, we present formation cases that describe which partners are responsible for the construction and operation of protocol adaptors. Next, we present for each formation case an accompanying concrete software architecture that realizes the case. The presented software architectures support the flexible formation of business chains and use protocol adaptation as a key component. We show the feasibility of the approach by discussing a prototype implementation, which we apply to a case study from the healthcare domain.

  • Formal Specification of the Assurance Point Web Service Composition Model
    • Authors: Le Gao et al
      Abstract: International Journal of Cooperative Information Systems, Ahead of Print. This paper presents a formal specification of the Assurance Point (AP) web service composition model. The AP model provides a flexible way of checking constraints and responding to execution errors in service composition. An AP is a combined logical and physical checkpoint, providing an execution milestone that stores critical data and interacts with integration rules (IRs) to alter program flow and to invoke different forms of recovery depending on the execution status. In this paper, the execution and recovery semantics of assurance points have been fully defined in the context of if-else, parallel, and loop control structures. The activities and complex control structures of the AP model have been formalized and tested in the Yet Another Workflow Language (YAWL) engine. By doing so, the correctness of the execution and recovery semantics in the AP model has been verified, demonstrating that YAWL nets of the AP model satisfy the soundness property. Different from existing web service composition models, the AP model presented by this research provides multiple levels of protection against service execution failure with a combination of forward and backward recovery techniques.

  • Preferential Resource Allocation in Stream Processing Systems
    • Authors: Karen Works et al
      Abstract: International Journal of Cooperative Information Systems, Ahead of Print. Overloaded data stream management systems (DSMS) cannot process all tuples within their response time. For some DSMS it is crucial to allocate the precious resources to process the most significant tuples. Prior work has applied shedding and spilling to permanently drop or temporarily place to disk insignificant tuples. However neither approach considers that tuple significance can be multi-tiered nor that significance determination can be costly. These approaches consider all tuples not dropped to be equally significant. Unlike these prior works, we take a fresh stance by pulling the most significant tuples forward throughout the query pipeline. Proactive Promotion (PP), a new DSMS methodology for preferential CPU resource allocation, selectively pulls the most significant tuples ahead of less significant tuples. Our optimizer produces an optimal PP plan that minimizes the processing latency of tuples in the most significant tiers in this multi-tiered precedence scheme by strategically placing significance determination operators throughout the query pipeline at compile-time and by agilely activating them at run-time. Our results substantiate that PP lowers the latency and increases the throughput for significant results when compared to the state-of-the-art shedding and traditional DSMS approaches (between 2 and 18 fold for a rich diversity of datasets) with negligible overhead.

  • Decision-Making Support for the Correctness of Input Data at Runtime in
           Business Processes
    • Authors: María Teresa Gómez-López et al
      Abstract: International Journal of Cooperative Information Systems, Volume 0, Issue 0, Ahead of Print. In a business process, the information that flows between the activities can be introduced by those users who interact with the process. This introduced information could be incorrect due to a lack of knowledge or a mistake. For this reason and to make the business process execution consistent, we propose a Decision Support System (DSS) to inform the user about the possible and correct values that the input data can take. The DSS takes into account the business process model and the policy of the company. The policy concerning the input data and dataflow that the company manages can be represented by constraints (called Business Data Constraints (BDCs)). In order to ascertain all the possible values of the input data that permit the execution of the process following the defined goals, the DSS analyzes the business process model and the BDC, using the constraint programming paradigm.
