A Survey on Approaches for Interoperability and Portability of Cloud Computing Services

Kostas Stravoskoufos, Alexandros Preventis, Stelios Sotiriadis, Euripides G. M. Petrakis
2014 Proceedings of the 4th International Conference on Cloud Computing and Services Science  
Over the recent years, the rapid development of Cloud Computing has driven to a large market of cloud services that offer infrastructure, platforms and software to everyday users.  ...  Yet, due to the lack of common accepted standards, cloud service providers use different technologies and offer their clients services that are operated by a variety of proprietary APIs.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Unions Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007(FP7/ -2013 under grant agreement no 604691 (project FI-STAR).  ...

Agents for e-business applications

A. Negri, A. Poggi, M. Tomaiuolo, P. Turci
2006 Proceedings of the fifth international joint conference on Autonomous agents and multiagent systems - AAMAS '06  
The framework has been experimented and evaluated in the realization of a simple, but realistic, prototype of an e-travelling system. The results, though still preliminary, are quite encouraging.  ...  In this paper, we propose an agent-based framework representing an attempt of giving an answer to such problems.  ...  At present, we are working in two main directions: i) to provide a full OWL DL support through a home-made framework supplying ontology management and reasoning functionalities, with the main purpose of  ...

A hybrid approach to semantic web services matchmaking

Giuseppe Fenza, Vincenzo Loia, Sabrina Senatore
2008 International Journal of Approximate Reasoning  
This paper presents a hybrid framework which achieves a fuzzy matchmaking of semantic web services.  ...  The matchmaking activity exploits a mathematical model, the fuzzy multiset to suitably represent the multi-granular information, enclosed into an OWLS-based description of a semantic web service.  ...  The framework has been training for discovering and matchmaking of OWLS-based web services, through fuzzy techniques.  ...

An ontology for context-aware pervasive computing environments

2003 Knowledge engineering review (Print)  
We describe our use of the Web Ontology Language OWL and other tools for building the foundation ontology for the Context Broker Architecture (CoBrA), a new context-aware pervasive computing framework.  ...  It provides a vocabulary of terms for classes and properties suitable for building practical systems that model context in pervasive computing environments.  ...  In order for a context broker to reason about contexts, an inference engine for reasoning over OWL ontologies is required.  ...

Trust-based Revision for Expressive Web Syndication

J. Golbeck, C. Halaschek-Wiener
2008 Journal of Logic and Computation  
Technologies, like the standard Semantic Web languages RDF and OWL, make it possible to create expressive representations of the content of publications and subscriptions in a syndication framework.  ...  A challenge to this approach is that the consistency of the underlying knowledge base must be maintained for these techniques to work.  ...  We would like to thank Aditya Kalyanpur, Yarden Katz, Vladimir Kolovski, and Bijan Parsia for their contributions to this work.  ...

2004 Second IEEE Annual Conference on Pervasive Computing and Communications, 2004. Proceedings of the  
This architecture called Context Broker Architecture (CoBrA) differs from other architectures in using the Web Ontology Language OWL for modeling ontologies of context and for supporting context reasoning  ...  Central to our architecture is a broker agent that maintains a shared model of context for all computing entities in the space and enforces the privacy policies defined by the users when sharing their  ...  Our preliminary research in the Context Broker Architecture shows the Web Ontology Language OWL is adequate for defining ontologies for supporting context reasoning and knowledge sharing.  ...

Process Mediation of OWL-S Web Services [chapter]

Katia Sycara, Roman Vaculín
2008 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The ability to deal with incompatibilities of service requesters and providers is a critical factor for achieving smooth interoperability in dynamic environments.  ...  In this paper we focus on mediation and brokering mechanisms of OWL-S Web Services which we see as the main means to overcome various types of problems and incompatibilities.  ...  The protocol described above shows that the Broker needs to perform a number of complex reasoning tasks for both the discovery and mediation part of its interaction.  ...
