This paper describes a novel software architecture, Competitive Workflow, which implements workflow as a distributed and competitive multi-agent system. The implementation of a competitive workflow architecture designed to model important computer-aided molecular design workflows, the Discovery Bus, is described. QSPR modelling results for three example(More)
Selected Internet Protocol (IP) Traffic Offload (SIPTO) is a feature defined in the 3GPP standards. In this paper we propose a Converged Gateway (CGW) which enables the SIPTO functionality to be performed locally, before data reaches the edge of the Evolved Packet Core (EPC) network. This feature relieves the EPC from high-bandwidth flows that could(More)
As industrialization of laboratory processes for drug discovery continues to gather momentum, the bottleneck has moved toward exploitation of this tide of information to enable better quality decisions. The development of information-management systems to automate data and materials management can have a positive impact on productivity, as can increasingly(More)
The Tracker project is studying rework in systems engineering projects. Our hypothesis is that providing decision makers with information about previous relevant decisions will assist in reducing the amount of rework in a project. We propose an architecture for the flexible integration of the tools implementing the variety of theories and models used in the(More)
Where data needs to be transferred between databases, data from the host (source) may need to be transformed so that it may be loaded into the target (recipient). This paper describes an approach to data transformation based on the idea of making the data model of host appear to be the same as the data model of the target, enabling the simplest transfer of(More)
