Dynamic Process Integration Framework: Toward Efficient Information Processing in Complex Distributed Systems [chapter]

Gregor Pavlin, Michiel Kamermans, Mihnea Scafeş
2009 Studies in Computational Intelligence  
The resulting systems support processing based on rich domain knowledge while, at the same time, the collaboration between heterogeneous services requires minimal ontological commitments.  ...  The Dynamic Process Integration Framework (DPIF) is a service oriented approach which supports efficient creation of distributed systems for collaborative reasoning.  ...  Collaboration in such systems can be achieved through service discovery based on local domain knowledge.  ...
