In this paper, we present a novel mathematical framework of a mobility model that can be applied to a large number of possible horizontal environments, ranging from local area networks (LANs) to wide area networks (WANs) for the prediction and tracking of mobile users. This new mobility model, termed 'Scalable Mobility Model' (SMM), provides a realistic set(More)
The integration of GRID and MAS (Multi-Agents Systems) is an active research topic. We have recently proposed the Agent-Grid Integration Language, to describe a service-based integration of GRID and MAS models. However, the complexity of the mutual integration aspects leads us to define a rigorous way to formalize the key concepts, their relations and the(More)
This position paper addresses the question of integrating GRID and MAS (Multi-Agent Systems) models by means of a service oriented approach. Service Oriented Computing (SOC) tries to address many challenges in the world of computing with services. The concept of service is clearly at the intersection of GRID and MAS and their integration allows to address(More)
The GRID and MAS (Multi-Agent Systems) communities believe in the potential of GRID and MAS to enhance each other as these models have developed significant complementarities. Thus, both communities agree on the ’what’ to do: promote an integration of GRID and MAS models. However, while the ’why’ to do it has been stated and assessed, the ’how’ to do it(More)
The paradigm shift from an information sharing infrastructure (i.e., the Web) to a resource sharing infrastructure (i.e., the Grid) has boosted the development of a new generation of online services. In particular, Grid services are stateful, dynamic and operate in a secure environment. Therefore they offer capabilities that are essential to remote(More)
This scenario takes the situation of a famous scientist wishing to set a Virtual Centre of Excellence (VCE) and put the emphasis on the bootstap (i.e. the really first steps). An interesting comparison is to analyse this scenario firstly in a context using traditional techniques (system oriented architecture and Web services), then secondly using a service(More)
This paper addresses the problem of integrating GRID and MAS (Multi-Agent Systems) models by means of a service-oriented approach. The concept of service is clearly at the intersection of GRID and MAS and their integration may enhance the implementation of dynamically generated services based on conversations. In our approach, services are exchanged (i.e.,(More)
In order to determine the impact of GRIDrelated technologies on Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL), we have adopted a pragmatic approach which consists in unders tanding the motivations of people who seek for collaborative learning inside Virtual Community (VC). Our analysis has been guided by Maslow’s model of human motivations. Hence, we(More)
