ALIVE: A Model-Driven Framework to Develop Dynamic, Flexible, Distributed Service-Oriented Systems
Found in: Symbolic and Numeric Algorithms for Scientific Computing, International Symposium on
By Javier Vázquez-Salceda, Wamberto Vasconcelos, Julian Padget, Frank Dignum, Siobhan Clarke, Manel Palau, Paul Sergeant, Kees Nieuwenhuis
Issue Date:September 2010
pp. 485-492
Service-oriented systems are fast becoming complex nodes in a vast digital, dynamic ecosystem, these systems of systems require the identification and establishment of flexible and spontaneous/opportunistic collaborative activities among various parties. S...
Adaptable, Organization-Aware, Service-Oriented Computing
Found in: IEEE Intelligent Systems
By Huib Aldewereld, Julian Padget, Wamberto Vasconcelos, Javier V´zquez-Salceda, Paul Sergeant, Athanasios Staikopoulos
Issue Date:July 2010
pp. 26-35
Service-oriented computing is the new wave emerging from maturing Web services and the adoption of elements from Semantic Web technology. More sophistication, in response to business requirements, does of course not make it easier to use or to control. In ...
A Fine-Grained Approach to Resolving Unsatisfiable Ontologies
Found in: Web Intelligence, IEEE / WIC / ACM International Conference on
By Sik Chun Lam, Jeff Z. Pan, Derek Sleeman, Wamberto Vasconcelos
Issue Date:December 2006
pp. 428-434
In the Semantic Web, inconsistencies in OWL on- tologies may easily occur. Existing approaches ei- ther identify the minimally unsatisfiable sub-ontologies or calculate the maximally satisfiable sub-ontologies. However practical problems remain; it is not ...
An Approach to Rapid Prototyping of Large Multi-Agent Systems
Found in: Automated Software Engineering, International Conference on
By Wamberto Vasconcelos, Carles Sierra, Marc Esteva
Issue Date:September 2002
pp. 13
Engineering individual components of a multi-agent system and their interactions is a complex and error-prone task in urgent need of methods and tools. Prototyping is a valuable technique to help software engineers explore the design space while gaining in...
Temporal accommodation of legal argumentation
Found in: Proceedings of the 13th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Law (ICAIL '11)
By Antonino Rotolo, Giovanni Sartor, Giuseppe Contissa, Regis Riveret, Wamberto Vasconcelos
Issue Date:June 2011
pp. 71-80
This paper proposes to integrate an argumentation framework with techniques from Temporal Constraint Satisfaction. Temporal constraints are thus embedded into legal argumentation to account for temporal aspects of legal reasoning. Through the accommodation...
A logic-based approach for automatic synthesis and maintenance of web sites
Found in: Proceedings of the 14th international conference on Software engineering and knowledge engineering (SEKE '02)
By Joao Cavalcanti, Wamberto Vasconcelos
Issue Date:July 2002
pp. 619-626
In this paper we introduce and justify the use of high-level specifications for synthesising and managing Web sites. Ours is a declarative approach employing computational logic for representing information and knowledge and also for generating the actual ...
