February 2015 Pervasive and Mobile Computing: Volume 17 Issue PB, February 2015
Publisher: Elsevier Science Publishers B. V.
Bibliometrics:
Citation Count: 3

Pervasive computing systems can be modelled effectively as populations of interacting autonomous components. The key challenge to realizing such models is in getting separately-specified and -developed sub-systems to discover and interoperate with each other in an open and extensible way, supported by appropriate middleware services. In this paper, we argue ...

To deal with the flexible architectures and evolving functionalities of complex modern systems, the agent metaphor and agent-based computing are often the most appropriate software design approach. As a result, a broad range of special-purpose design processes has been developed in the last several years to tackle the challenges of ...

The key role of simulation in the engineering of complex multiagent systems (MAS) is today generally acknowledged in the MAS community. However, the adoption of simulation in state-of-the-art Agent-Oriented Software Engineering (AOSE) methodologies is still incomplete at its best. In this paper we present a simulation-based approach to MAS engineering ...

Given the growth of agent-based models and technologies in the last decade, nowadays the applicability of agent-oriented techniques to the engineering of complex systems such as pervasive computing ones critically depends on the availability and effectiveness of agent-oriented methodologies . Accordingly, in this paper we take SAPERE pervasive service ecosystems ...

Conference management is concerned with managing the dependencies of activities required to produce the proceedings of a scientific conference. This case study, very frequently used in the literature, presents interesting software engineering issues because it involves a number of articulated coordination activities and stresses interaction between peers. This paper presents ...

Bibliometrics:
Citation Count: 5

Design of stable software architectures has increasingly been a deep challenge to software developers due to the high volatility of their concerns and respective design decisions. Architecture stability is the ability of the high-level design units to sustain their modularity properties and not succumb to modifications. Architectural aspects are new ...

To fill the existing gap between agent-oriented methodologies and multi-agent system infrastructures , in the MEnSA project we studied how to build a new methodology that takes into consideration the infrastructures' features. Our aim was not to create a new-brand methodology, so we reused "fragments" of existing methodologies by composing ...

Citation Count: 1

Role-Based Access Control models are currently considered as the most effective approach for engineering access control systems. In this paper we experiment their application in the context of Multi-Agent Systems (MAS), by discussing the design of an access control system with an agent-oriented methodology such as SODA. In particular, we ...

Citation Count: 2

Agent-oriented methodologies like ADELFE, ASPECS, INGENIAS, MaSE, PASSI, Prometheus, SODA, or Tropos propose development formulae with their own specificities. Analyzing them is the responsibility of the Process Engineering discipline, which is currently one hot research line in software engineering. The analysis makes it possible to construct a catalogue of current ...

In the field of Multi-Agent Systems (MASs), methodologies and infrastructures have developed in the last years along two opposite paths: while Agent-Oriented methodologies have essentially undergone a top-down evolution, MAS infrastructures have mostly followed a bottom-up path, producing a conceptual gap between methodologies and the available agent infrastructures. This paper ...

Citation Count: 7

The key role of environment as a first-class abstraction in the engineering of MAS (multi-agent systems) is today generally acknowledged in the MAS community. However, the support for the notion of environment in today AOSE (agent-oriented software engineering) methodologies is still either absent, weak, or incomplete at best. In this ...

In the last years, research on agent-oriented (AO) methodologies and multi-agent system (MAS) infrastructures has developed along two opposite paths: while AO methodologies have essentially undergone a top-down evolution pushed by contributions from heterogeneous fields like human sciences, MAS infrastructures have mostly followed a bottom-up path growing from existing and ...

In the Software Engineering (SE) research field, several efforts are underway aimed at developing appropriate meta-models for SE methodologies. Meta-models are meant to check and verify both the software development process and the completeness and expressiveness of methodologies. In this context, in order to provide a uniform way to represent, ...

Publisher: IEEE Computer Society
Bibliometrics:
Citation Count: 10

Architectural aspects are expected to modularize widely-scoped concerns that naturally crosscut the boundaries ofsystem components at the software architecture level. However, there is no empirical knowledge about the positive and negative influences of aspectual decompositions on architecture stability. This paper analyzes the influence exerted by the aspect-oriented composition mechanisms in ...

This paper presents a systematic case study that analyzes the influence exerted by different styles over the nature of architectural crosscutting concerns in an evolving multi-agent system. The analysis encompassed the systematic comparison of alternative architecture decompositions for the same application that changed over time to address different stakeholders' concerns.

An artefact for MASs is an entity not driven by an inner goal (as agents are), but used by agents to achieve their own goals. In this paper, we assume agents and artefacts as first-class entities in MAS engineering, and claim that agent-oriented methodologies should exploit these two abstractions as ...

In the AOSE (Agent-Oriented Software Engineering) area, several research efforts are underway to develop appropriate meta-models for agent-oriented methodologies. Meta-models are meant to check and verify the completeness and expressiveness of methodologies. In this paper, we put to test the well-established standard Unified Modelling Language (UML), and the emergent Object ...

Complex systems call for a hierarchical description. Analogously, the engineering of non-trivial MASs (multiagent systems) requires principles and mechanisms for a multi-layered description, which could be used by MAS designers to provide different levels of abstraction over MASs. In this paper, we first advocate the need for zooming mechanisms , ...
