—Goal modeling is a prominent design paradigm in various domains of information systems engineering. In the field of service oriented computing (SOC) and in the field of semantic web services, emergent research works are basing their engineering approach on the goal concept. Because of the complexity of processes underlying SOC, the usage of the goal(More)
—The increasing growth in popularity of Web services has made it difficult for business users to fully benefit from these services if they remain specified at the software level. The introduction of intentional services is an alternative for bridging the gap between low level, technical software-service descriptions and high level, strategic expressions of(More)
With the increasing growth in popularity of Web services, discovering relevant Web services becomes a significant challenge. The introduction of intentional services has been proposed to bridge the gap between low level, technical softwareservice descriptions and high level, strategic expressions of business needs for services.

La modélisation des processus et le guidage de leur réalisation sont des problèmes clés de la recherche sur la formalisation des méthodes. Cet article présente un formalisme-appelé modèle de cartes-permettant de modéliser les démarches méthodologiques. Les cartes de processus décrivent les intentions de l'utilisateur. Chaque intention peut être réalisée(More)
Wireless Body Area Networks (WBANs) have emerged as a promising technology that has shown enormous potential in improving the quality of healthcare, and has thus found a broad range of medical applications from ubiquitous health monitoring to emergency medical response systems. The huge amount of highly sensitive data collected and generated by WBAN nodes(More)
Defect management is a central task in software maintenance. When a defect is reported, appropriate resources must be allocated to analyze and resolve the defect. An important issue in resource allocation is the estimation of Defect Resolution Time (DRT). Prior research has considered different approaches for DRT prediction exploiting information retrieval(More)
