An Agent-based Telecooperation Framework [chapter]

Albrecht Schmidt, Alexander Specker, Gerhard Partsch, Michael Weber, Siegfried Höck
1998 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper a telecollaboration environment based on agent technology is proposed, which could be used as an information infrastructure for cooperative buildings or virtual enterprises.  ...  Exemplarily the architecture and functionality of a communication agent as one part of an agent cluster is described.  ...  System Architecture The system architecture of the telecooperation framework can be divided into two logical aspects interconnected closely with each other.  ...

Trust, Self Regulation and Social Movement:Partner Selection at Digital Collaboration Network forSME's Sustainability

Olivia Fachrunnisa, Mutamimah, Gunawan
2013 International Journal of Trade, Economics and Finance  
Collaboration is believed as an effort to balance between competition and sharing which will take many benefits to create a strategic advantage between collaborating parties.  ...  Member selection is an important decision to be made when creating a virtual collaboration team. A project manager should consider social dimensional factors early in the member creation process.  ...  Based on those discussions, a mechanisms framework for member selection of virtual collaboration teams has been proposed and presented.  ...

A Negotiation Support System based on a Multi-agent System

Maxime Morge, Philippe Beaune
2004 Proceedings of the 2004 ACM symposium on Applied computing - SAC '04  
In this paper, we propose a Negotiation Support System based on a Multi-agent System.  ...  Each agent assists a user in multi-criteria decision making and negotiates according to this decision-modelling with other agents, each of them representing a user.  ...  The relevance of arguments is based on the preferences of the arguing agent. An implementation and an empirical assessment must come to valid the adequacy and the significance of our approach.  ...

Authenticity and Provability — A Formal Framework [chapter]

Sigrid Gürgens, Peter Ochsenschläger, Carsten Rudolph
2002 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Authentication and non-repudiation are essential security requirements for electronic commerce applications and other types of binding telecooperation.  ...  Based on the notions of formal language theory we introduce formalisations of the security services of authenticity and proof of authenticity that are independent of the abstraction level.  ...  This approach, formulated in terms of formal language theory, is based on a model for key establishment protocols [10] and is related to a formal framework for binding cooperations [5] .  ...

Implementing configuration management policies for distributed applications

Gerald Krause, Martin Zimmermann
1996 Distributed Systems Engineering  
The central purpose of this paper is to present a novel framework supporting the specification and the implementation of configuration management policies for distributed applications.  ...  To reduce management complexity, we introduce a technique which permits the definition of configuration management policies as an integral part of an application specification.  ...  In the existing prototype, the configuration information is based on a central file system. Future work will concentrate on an implementation using an object-oriented data base.  ...
