PAT 3: An Extensible Architecture for Building Multi-domain Model Checkers

Yang Liu, Jun Sun, Jin Song Dong
2011 2011 IEEE 22nd International Symposium on Software Reliability Engineering  
In this work, we develop an extensible and integrated architecture in PAT3 (PAT version 3.*) to support the development of model checkers for wide range application domains.  ...  IRL contains several common semantic models to support wide application domains, and builds both explicit model checking and symbolic model checking under one roof.  ...  Model Specification System models can be specified in numerous different ways. In theory any means of formally specifying a model could be used for the purpose of model checking.  ...

SERVICE-ORIENTED COMPUTING: A RESEARCH ROADMAP

MICHAEL P. PAPAZOGLOU, PAOLO TRAVERSO, SCHAHRAM DUSTDAR, FRANK LEYMANN
2008 International Journal of Cooperative Information Systems  
This necessitates that a broader vision and perspective be established-one that permeates and transforms the fundamental requirements of complex applications that require the use of the SOC paradigm.  ...  SOC is being shaped by, and increasingly will help shape, modern society as a whole, especially in the areas of dynamic and ondemand business and education, health and government services.  ...  Although there can be numerous types of control loops in a system, they can be naturally divided into five categories: selfconfiguring, self-adapting, self-healing, self-optimizing and self-protecting,  ...

2007 Informatica  
On the other hand, automatic annotation is commonly used to annotate the multimedia data based on low level features, which obviously lacks the semantic nature of the multimedia data.  ...  In this paper, we have performed automatic annotation of the images by extracting their semantics (high level features) with the help of semantic libraries. Semantic libraries use semantic graphs.  ...  Refinement Process Refinement Process part of the semantic library will be used in the retrieval process to extract the best possible semantics among the various possible semantics by consulting the user  ...
