This paper proposes an agent-based platform to model and support parallel and concurrent negotiations among organizations acting in the same industrial market.  ...  The underlying complexity is to model the dynamic environment where multi-attribute and multi-participant negotiations are racing over a set of heterogeneous resources.  ...  Also, ontologies play an important role in the development of Multi-Agent Sys-tems (MAS) for the semantic web due to the heterogeneity of agents. Thus, Laclavík et al.  ...

A hybrid approach to semantic web services matchmaking

Giuseppe Fenza, Vincenzo Loia, Sabrina Senatore
2008 International Journal of Approximate Reasoning  
In the most of approaches, this activity is often entrusted to software agents, able to drive reasoning/planning activities, to discover the required service which can be single or composed of more atomic  ...  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.  ...  On the other hand, the work in [18] presents an agent-based system for web services discovery.  ...

A Survey on the Use of Preferences for Virtual Machine Placement in Cloud Data Centers [article]

Abdulaziz Alashaikh, Eisa Alanazi, Ala Al-Fuqaha
2020 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we provide a detailed review on the role of preferences in the recent literature on VM placement.  ...  Virtual machine (VM) placement aims to assign each virtual machine to a server in the cloud environment. VM Placement is of paramount importance to the design of cloud data centers.  ...  For example, the work in [120] considered a two phase approach and applied non-functional preferences in the second phase to reduce the number of candidate PMs.  ...
