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)
Amongst the various eLearning techniques, Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) is of growing interest within the academic world. However, during the first phase of the EleGI project, a noticable fact has been the difficulty to match the user needs with the potentiality of the GRID services. Thus, through a fictive scenario, this article proposes(More)
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 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)
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)
—Some recent publications have proposed method-ologies to assess the performance of multimedia services in introducing subjective estimate of the end-to-end quality of various applications. As a general statement, in order to obtain meaningful subjective results, the experiments must be repeatable and the elements of the whole chain of transmission between(More)
