  • The Formal Semantics of a Domain-Specific Modeling Language for Semantic
           Web Enabled Multi-Agent Systems
    • Authors: Sinem Getir et al
      Abstract: International Journal of Cooperative Information Systems, Ahead of Print. Development of agent systems is without question a complex task when autonomous, reactive and proactive characteristics of agents are considered. Furthermore, internal agent behavior model and interaction within the agent organizations become even more complex and hard to implement when new requirements and interactions for new agent environments such as the Semantic Web are taken into account. We believe that the use of both domain specific modeling and a Domain-specific Modeling Language (DSML) may provide the required abstraction and support a more fruitful methodology for the development of Multi-agent Systems (MASs) especially when they are working on the Semantic Web environment. Although syntax definition based on a metamodel is an essential part of a modeling language, an additional and required part would be the determination and implementation of DSML constraints that constitute the (formal) semantics which cannot be defined solely with a metamodel. Hence, in this paper, formal semantics of a MAS DSML called Semantic Web enabled Multi-agent Systems (SEA_ML) is introduced. SEA_ML is a modeling language for agent systems that specifically takes into account the interactions of semantic web agents with semantic web services. What is more, SEA_ML also supports the modeling of semantic agents from their internals to MAS perspective. Based on the defined abstract and concrete syntax definitions, we first give the formal representation of SEA_ML's semantics and then discuss its use on MAS validation. In order to define and implement semantics of SEA_ML, we employ Alloy language which is declarative and has a strong description capability originating from both relational and first-order logic in order to easily define complex structures and behaviors of these systems. Differentiating from similar contributions of other researchers on formal semantics definition for MAS development languages, SEA_ML's semantics, presented in this paper, defines both static and dynamic aspects of the interaction between software agents and semantic web services, in addition to the definition of the semantics already required for agent internals and MAS communication. Implementation with Alloy makes definition of SEA_ML's semantics to include relations and sets with a simple notation for MAS model definitions. We discuss how the automatic analysis and hence checking of SEA_ML models can be realized with the defined semantics. Design of an agent-based electronic barter system is exemplified in order to give some flavor of the use of SEA_ML's formal semantics. Lessons learned during the development of such a MAS DSML semantics are also reported in this paper.

  • Dynamic Transaction Aware Web Service Selection
    • Authors: Kanchana Rajaram et al
      Abstract: International Journal of Cooperative Information Systems, Ahead of Print. Web service composition, that recursively constructs a composite web service out of the existing services based on a business workflow has been acknowledged as a promising approach to meet the user demands, whenever a single service alone cannot fulfil the needs. In view of frequent failures in the internet environment where the composed service is executed, reliability of the composed service must be ensured. The reliability is determined by the behavioral or transactional properties of component services. The component services for each activity of the workflow must be selected based on their behavior so that their execution results in a consistent termination. Service selection must happen at run-time in order to consider the services available in a service registry at the time of execution. Towards this need, a dynamic transaction aware web service selection approach is proposed in this paper. Further, whenever user requirements change, a long running transaction must be interrupted and cancelled which is not addressed by any of the existing works. Hence, service cancellability property is proposed in this paper and incorporated in the dynamic selection approach. The overhead of the proposed run-time selection approach is assessed and the impact of increased services on its performance is also measured.

  • Privacy-Preserving Assessment of Social Network Data Trustworthiness
    • Authors: Chenyun Dai et al
      Abstract: International Journal of Cooperative Information Systems, Volume 23, Issue 02, June 2014. Extracting useful knowledge from social network datasets is a challenging problem. While large online social networks such as Facebook and LinkedIn are well known and gather millions of users, small social networks are today becoming increasingly common. Many corporations already use existing social networks to connect to their customers. Seeing the increasing usage of small social networks, such companies will likely start to create in-house online social networks where they will own the data shared by customers. The trustworthiness of these online social networks is essentially important for decision making of those companies. In this paper, our goal is to assess the trustworthiness of local social network data by referencing external social networks. To add to the difficulty of this problem, privacy concerns that exist for many social network datasets have restricted the ability to analyze these networks and consequently to maximize the knowledge that can be extracted from them. This paper addresses this issue by introducing the problem of data trustworthiness in social networks when repositories of anonymized social networks exist that can be used to assess such trustworthiness. Three trust score computation models (absolute, relative, and weighted) that can be instantiated for specific anonymization models are defined and algorithms to calculate these trust scores are developed. Using both real and synthetic social networks, the usefulness of the trust score computation is validated through a series of experiments.

  • Process Flexibility in Service Orchestration: A Systematic Literature
    • Authors: Aitor Murguzur et al
      Abstract: International Journal of Cooperative Information Systems, Ahead of Print. In dynamic environments, changes are often unpredictable and complex. Process models cannot be fully specified up-front and process flexibility becomes a key issue. Enterprise applications and systems supporting such processes are increasingly being architected in a service-oriented style. In this light, our goal is to analyze service orchestration approaches from a process flexibility perspective. Through a systematic literature review, we evaluate 17 service orchestration approaches and analyze their support for: (i) variability, support for large collections of process variants, (ii) adaptation, need for instance changes during runtime, (iii) evolution, need for schema changes during runtime, and (iv) looseness, need for loosely-specified models. The review findings provide a clearer understanding of process flexibility requirements and service orchestration mechanisms that support them, helping us to understand the limitations and shed light on future research areas.

  • Gamification for Online Communities: A Case Study for Delivering
           Government Services
    • Authors: (Sanat Kumar Bista)
      Abstract: International Journal of Cooperative Information Systems, Ahead of Print. Gamification, the idea of inserting game dynamics into portals or social networks, has recently evolved as an approach to encourage active participation in online communities. For an online community to start and proceed on to a sustainable operation, it is important that members are encouraged to contribute positively and frequently. We decided to introduce gamification in an online community that we designed and developed with the Australian Government's Department of Human Services to support welfare recipients transitioning from one payment to another. We first defined a formal model of gamification and a gamification design process. In instantiating our model to the online community, we realised that our context applied a number of constraints on the gamification elements that could be introduced. In this paper, we outline the design and implementation of a gamification model for online communities and its instantiation into our context, with its specific requirements. While we cannot comment on the success of gamification to drive user engagement in our context (for lack of the possibility of a controlled experiment), we found our implementation of badges-based gamification a helpful way to provide a useful abstraction on the life of the community, providing feedback enabling us to monitor and analyze the community. We thus show how feedback provided by such gamification data has a potential to be useful to community providers to better understand the community needs and addressing them appropriately to maintain a level of engagement in the community.

  • Recommending Talks at Research Conferences Using Users' Social Networks
    • Authors: Danielle Lee et al
      Abstract: International Journal of Cooperative Information Systems, Volume 0, Issue 0, Ahead of Print. This paper investigates recommendation algorithms to suggest talks of interest to attendees of research conferences. In this study, based on a social conference support system Conference Navigator 3 (CN3), we explored three kinds of knowledge sources to generate recommendations: users' preference about talks (CN3 bookmarks), users' social networks (research collaboration network and CN3 following network) and talk content information (titles and abstracts). Using these sources, we explored a diverse set of algorithms from non-personalized community vote-based recommendations and conventional collaborative filtering recommendations to hybrid recommendations such as social network-based (SN) recommendations boosted by content information of talks. We found that SN recommendations fused with content information outperformed the other approaches. Moreover, for cold-start users who have an insufficient number of bookmarks to express their preferences, the recommendations based on their social connections also generated significantly better suggestions than the other approaches. Between two kinds of social networks that we considered as foundations of recommendations, there was no significant difference in the quality of the recommendations.

  • 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.

  • A Perspective of Evolution After Five Years: A Large-Scale Study of Web
           Spam Evolution
    • Authors: De Wang et al
      Abstract: International Journal of Cooperative Information Systems, Volume 0, Issue 0, Ahead of Print. Identifying and detecting web spam is an ongoing battle between spam-researchers and spammers which has been going on since search engines allowed searching of web pages to the modern sharing of web links via social networks. A common challenge faced by spam-researchers is the fact that new techniques depend on requiring a corpus of legitimate and spam web pages. Although large corpora of legitimate web pages are available to researchers, the same cannot be said about web spam or spam web pages. In this paper, we introduce the Webb Spam Corpus 2011 — a corpus of approximately 330,000 spam web pages — which we make available to researchers in the fight against spam. By having a standard corpus available, researchers can collaborate better on developing and reporting results of spam filtering techniques. The corpus contains web pages crawled from links found in over 6.3 million spam emails. We analyze multiple aspects of this corpus including redirection, HTTP headers, web page content, and classification evaluation. We also provide insights into changes in web spam since the last Webb Spam Corpus was released in 2006. These insights include: (1) spammers manipulate social media in spreading spam; (2) HTTP headers and content also change over time; (3) spammers have evolved and adopted new techniques to avoid the detection based on HTTP header information.
