WS-Governance: A Policy Language for SOA Governance [chapter]

José Antonio Parejo, Pablo Fernandez, Antonio Ruiz-Cortés
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In order to ease its adoption by SOA practitioners it: i) shares WS-Policy guidelines and is compatible with it, ii) has XML serialization as well as a plain-text one and iii) has a CSP based semantics  ...  More specifically, we focus on problems related to specification and automated analysis of government policies. We propose a novel SOA governance specification model as a solution to these problems.  ...  It is noticeable, that neither the definition of the new concept of Governance Document, nor the use of the DSLs for Governance Policies, break WS-Policy compatibility.  ...

Defeasible security policy composition for web services

Adam J. Lee, Jodie P. Boyer, Lars E. Olson, Carl A. Gunter
2006 Proceedings of the fourth ACM workshop on Formal methods in security - FMSE '06  
In addition, the structure of our policies allows for composition to occur using a single operator; this allows for entirely automated composition.  ...  We aim to partially validate these claims here with a formulation of defeasible policy composition for web services, an emerging foundation for B2B commerce on the World Wide Web.  ...  Acknowledgements Lee was supported by the NSF under grants IIS-0331707, CNS-0325951, and CNS-0524695 and by a Motorola Center for Communications Graduate Fellowship.  ...

Using argumentation to model and deploy agent-based applications

Jamal Bentahar, Rafiul Alam, Zakaria Maamar, Nanjangud C. Narendra
2010 Knowledge-Based Systems  
Agents can then jointly find arguments that support a new solution for their conflicts, which is not known by any of them individually.  ...  In this protocol, agents reason about partial information using partial arguments, partial attack, and partial acceptability.  ...  The authors would also like to thank the reviewers for their very helpful comments and suggestions.  ...

Active reinforcement learning

Arkady Epshteyn, Adam Vogel, Gerald DeJong
2008 Proceedings of the 25th international conference on Machine learning - ICML '08  
However, exact transition probabilities are difficult for experts to specify. One option left to an agent is a long and potentially costly exploration of the environment.  ...  When the transition probabilities and rewards of a Markov Decision Process (MDP) are known, an agent can obtain the optimal policy without any interaction with the environment.  ...  Suppose that for a givenŝ,â and for every policy π, U π ( ,â [T 0 , X]; R 0 ) is a linear function of X|ŝ,â.  ...

Interactive mesostructures

Scott Nykl, Chad Mourning, David Chelberg
2013 Proceedings of the ACM SIGGRAPH Symposium on Interactive 3D Graphics and Games - I3D '13  
Image sets were created for the least recently used (LRU) update policy [9] and a weighted update policy. Each test was conducted at U = 1, 2, 4, and 64 updates per frame.  ...  If T c ws has changed since the previous notification, update the collision state machine using the new T c ws and the steps defined in the previous list; this searches for any possible collision(s) along  ...

Verifying the Conformance of Web Services to Global Interaction Protocols: A First Step [chapter]

M. Baldoni, C. Baroglio, A. Martelli, V. Patti, C. Schifanella
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This work proposes an approach to the verification of a priori conformance of a business process to a protocol, which is based on the theory of formal languages and guarantees the interoperability of peers  ...  An abstract choreography can be seen as a protocol specification; it does not refer to specific peers and, especially in an open application domain, it might be necessary to retrieve a set of web services  ...  The work in [7] already takes this approach by using WS-CDL and BPEL4WS as complementary design tools: the first design step of an interaction protocol (for the peers of an e-commerce system) consists  ...

Quality of data driven simulation workflows

Michael Reiter, Uwe Breitenbucher, Oliver Kopp, Dimka Karastoyanova
2012 2012 IEEE 8th International Conference on E-Science  
To realize this Quality of Data-driven workflows, we present middleware architecture and a WS-Policy-based language to describe QoD requirements and capabilities.  ...  In this paper, we propose a generic approach to use QoD as a uniform means to steer complex interdisciplinary simulations implemented as workflows.  ...  As an example, we use the interval [0,1] over the set of real numbers (and an order relation ≤) in our work which is a partially ordered set.  ...

Ugo Colombino, Edlira Narazani
2013 Basic Income Studies  
We use a microeconometric model and a social welfare methodology in order to evaluate various alternatives mechanisms.  ...  The set of universalistic policies that are preferable to the current system is however very large and appears to give the opportunity of selecting a best reform according to many different criteria or  ...  However, instead of looking for an analytical solution we adopt a computational-empirical approach. 3 Namely, we use a microeconometric model and a social welfare methodology in order to explore and evaluate  ...
