Current trends in modern organizations towards ̄ atter structures and the involvement of many stakeholder groups in solving spatial decision problems have created a need for information technology capable of supporting collaborative spatial decision-making. Such information technology has developed in recent years for the computerized support of group(More)
We present Twitris 2.0 , a Semantic Web application that facilitates understanding of social perceptions by Semantics-based processing of massive amounts of event-centric data. Twitris 2.0 addresses challenges in large scale processing of social data, preserving spatiotemporal-thematic properties. Twitris 2.0 also covers context based semantic integration(More)
A dynamic and open service market should be characterised by the frequent appearance of new and diverse services. But in the internet environment, where a significant proportion of the functionality of new services is supported by Customer Premises Equipment (CPE), deployment can be an issue. How can such a diverse range of new services be easily deployed(More)
A miniload is an automated storage and retrieval system which stores small parts in bins or totes. The system consists of racks with a central aisle along which a computer controlled stacker crane travels to store and retrieve the bins. These systems are typically used in order picking applications, or in manufacturing support for the storage of tools and(More)
The work presented in this paper describes an architecture for a secure Virtual Organization Management framework. This work is taking place in the BEinGRID EU project, which aims to advance the take up of Grid technologies in the business domain by conducting a number of business experiments and in parallel producing a number of components.
The MMAPPS project is researching the use of techniques from economics and social science to tackle some of the fundamental difficulties in creating wellfounded, sustainable, P2P applications. The project’s central approach is to extend market management techniques to improve cooperation between peers while enhancing the community-oriented structure of P2P(More)
In domain-specific search systems, knowledge of a domain of interest is embedded as a backbone that guides the search process. But the knowledge used in most such systems 1. exists only for few well known broad domains; 2. is of a basic nature: either purely hierarchical or involves only few relationship types; and 3. is not always kept up-to-date missing(More)
Systems Engineering is not a new discipline; the term has been in use since World War II. Yet, whilst there has been no shortage of definitions of the term over the years (not all of which are consistent), there is little consensus on the scope of Systems Engineering. This is particularly true in relation to other overlapping disciplines such as System(More)
The main objective of the model we describe in this paper is to allow easy, flexible addition of quality of service (QoS) control to Java Internet applications. In this work the QoS is expressed in terms of network and host resources, the network QoS being controlled with RSVP. Flexibility is provided by a prototype product from the ANSA research(More)
