Collaboration environments impose high demands on humans and artificial systems. Especially during critical tasks team members, including humans, artificial systems and other (sub-) teams, require support to guarantee their continued effectiveness. Effectiveness of individuals and teams is an important ingredient for organizational effectiveness, managerial(More)
Enterprise systems are increasingly behaving as nodes in a digital, dynamic ecosystem. On the one hand, this new situation requires flexible, spontaneous and opportunistic collaboration activitiesto be identified and established among business parties. On the other hand, it also requires engineering approaches able to integrate new functionalities and(More)
This paper presents a framework of ICT solutions developed in the EU research project DIADEM that supports environmental management for chemical hazards in industrial areas, with an enhanced capacity to assess population exposure and health risks, alert relevant groups and organize efficient response. The emphasis is on advanced solutions which are(More)
We describe several principles for designing Actor-Agent Communities (AAC) as collectives of autonomous problem solving entities (software agents and human experts) that self-organize and collaborate at solving complex problems. One of the main distinctive aspects of the AAC is their ability to integrate in a meaningful way the expertise and reasoning of(More)
There is a large body of research on software services, but the issues of communication and dynamic reconfiguration have received little attention, as have adaptation to environment and dynamic combination of service building blocks into new applications. Here, we present the approach of the FP7 ALIVE project to the use of formal models of coordination and(More)
Service-oriented systems are fast becoming complex nodes in a vast digital, dynamic ecosystem, these systems of systems require the identification and establishment of flexible and spontaneous/opportunistic collaborative activities among various parties. Such sophisticated systems need new engineering approaches able to integrate new functionalities and(More)
Contemporary environmental management applications often require situation assessment based on the processing of large quantities of heterogeneous information and rich domain knowledge. This paper discusses an efficient solution to such processing challenges, which is based on the recently introduced Dynamic Process Integration Framework (DPIF), a service(More)
