Agent-Supported Collaboration and Interoperability for Networked Enterprises

  title={Agent-Supported Collaboration and Interoperability for Networked Enterprises},
  author={Ingo Zinnikus and Xiaoqi Cao and Klaus Fischer},
The paper presents an agent-supported framework for improving solutions for enterprise interoperability and enterprise collaboration. We present the context of COIN in the European research area and explain the basic approach and system architecture COIN is aiming at. Special emphasis is put on how agents can support enterprise interoperability as well as enterprise collaboration services. The framework adopts a modeling approach for the description and execution of business processes. With… 
A rule-based knowledge system on semantic web for collaboration moderator services
A semantic web rule-based knowledge system applied to collaboration moderator service (CMS) is proposed to enable semantic integration of heterogeneous data for the moderation of shared knowledge among cooperative VOs.
Project Alignment - Collaborative Internet Based Project Management
Project alignment is the process of ensuring that project key stakeholders share a common understanding of project work processes, operational procedure, objectives and plans. The paper focuses on
Project Alignment: A Configurable Model and Tool for Managing Critical Shared Processes in Collaborative Projects
This work is presenting a methodology, model and a set of tools, called Project Alignment Booster, for promoting collaborative project management, introducing the concept of collaborative project alignment.


From Stakeholder Intentions to Software Agent Implementations
The definition of agent capability in Tropos is revisited and the development process is refined in order to point out how capability specification can result from the integration of various analysis strategies.
Agent-based integration of Web Services with Workflow Management Systems
JBees, a multiagent based workflow system, is discussed, which supports distributed process models and the adaptability of executing processes, and how it can be used to bind and access Web Services in the context of executing a workflow process model.
Mapping BPMN to Agents : An Analysis
An automated mapping from business process diagrams to agent concepts that simplify the transfer of knowledge between the roles involved in the software development process is described.
Modeling and Executing Service Interactions using an Agent-oriented Modeling Language
This paper validates the underlying approach to model interactions, and discusses how choreographies can be executed with an established agent-oriented programming language basing on the principles of model-driven development.
Multiagent systems with workflows
It is shown how these two visions for the future of Web services are points in a continuum and a possible path for bridging the gap between them is discussed.
Extending BPMN for Modeling Complex Choreographies
This paper proposes extensions to broaden the applicability of the Business Process Modeling Notation, and is validated using the Service Interaction Patterns.

This paper presents a gateway architecture for connecting software agents and Web services in a transparent manner with fully automatic operation that allows Web services to invoke agent services and vice versa by translating message encodings and service descriptions between the two technologies.
Service Interaction Patterns
A collection of patterns of service interactions which allow emerging web services functionality, especially that pertaining to choreography and orchestration, to be benchmarked against abstracted forms of representative scenarios are presented.
From agent interaction protocols to executable code: a model-driven approach
In this paper, we demonstrate how to design protocols with the platform independent modeling language for multiagent systems (Dsml4mas) and discuss a model-driven approach to use protocol
