PAPER ONE

 

User
Models for Adaptive Information Retrieval on the Web: Towards an Interoperable
and Semantic Model

5505, France)

Searching information can be realized
thanks to specific tools called Information Retrieval Systems IRS (also called
“search engines”). To provide more accurate results to users, most of such
systems offer personalization features. To do this, each system models a user
in order to adapt search results that will be displayed. In a multi-application
context (e.g., when using several search engines for a unique query),
personalization techniques can be considered as limited because the user model
(also called profile) is incomplete since it does not exploit actions/queries
coming from other search engines. So, sharing user models between several
search engines is a challenge in order to provide more efficient
personalization techniques. A semantic architecture for user profile
interoperability is proposed to reach this goal. This architecture is also
important because it can be used in many other contexts to share various
resources models, for instance a document model, between applications. It is
also ensuring the possibility for every system to keep its own representation
of each resource while providing a solution to easily share it.

PAPER TWO



How to
Trust: A Model for Trust Decision Making

 

Massimo Felici (University of Edinburgh, UK)



This paper concerns decision-making
processes that rely on trust. In particular, it analyzes how different aspects
of trust (e.g., trust, trustworthiness, trustworthy evidence) influence trust
decisions, and acting on them eventually. It proposes a trust decision model
that structures the analysis of contextualized trust problems. Rather than
seeking a general definition of trust, this paper advocates the necessity to
have a structured way to analyze and characterize situational trust problems
systematically.

A
Variable Context Model for Adaptable Service-Based Applications

Service-based applications (SBAs) rely
on the invocation of services. The use of the service paradigm usually
guarantees a high level of flexibility. In fact, applications can be easily
reconfigured in order to continuously offer functionalities also in dynamic
execution environments. This happens by changing the service selection and
their composition. This flexibility can be exploited to design adaptable SBAs
able to react to events that could happen during the application lifecycle. The
execution flow of adaptable SBAs automatically changes on the basis of the
context in which they are executing. The context includes information ranging
from the situation in which users access the service-based applications to the
status of the components involved in the execution of such applications. In
this paper the authors propose a way to use context information to adapt SBAs.
In particular, their goal is to discuss the way in which the context should be
defined and managed in order to be exploited in the various activities related
to the adaptation of service-based applications.

PAPER FOUR

 

RELADO:
RELiable and ADaptive Opportunistic Routing Protocol for Wireless Mesh Networks 

 

Raffaele Bruno (Institute of Informatics and Telematics of
Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, Italy)

Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, Italy)

 

Opportunistic routing is considered as
one of the most promising techniques to effectively limit performance
degradation in wireless mesh networks caused by unpredictable channel
variations and high loss rates. This paradigm defers the selection of the next
hop after the packet reception to take advantage of any opportunity provided by
broadcast transmissions. Most of the existing opportunistic approaches base the
forwarder selection on end-to-end principles. However, in multi-hop wireless
environments the cost of a path is not uniformly distributed over space, nor
constant over time, hence even two equal-cost paths might present significantly
different link quality distributions one from the other. This encourages the
use of localized context to implement a more accurate selection of the possible
forwarders after each packet transmission. Hence, in this paper the authors
propose RELADO, an adaptive opportunistic routing protocol able to efficiently
combine end-to-end with local information to ensure transmission resilience
across the network. With this flexibility, RELADO is able to reduce packet loss
by ensuring the best trade-off between throughput maximization and packet
progress. An extensive set of ns2 simulations confirms the potentiality of
RELADO to improve network performance when compared to both legacy unicast and
opportunistic routing protocols.

Dual
Monitoring Communication for Self-Aware Network-on-Chip: Architecture and Case
Study

 

Liang Guang (University of Turku, Finland)

Ethiopia Nigussie (University of Turku, Finland)

Juha Plosila (University of Turku, Finland)

Hannu Tenhunen (Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden)

 

Self-aware and adaptive Network-on-Chip
(NoC) with dual monitoring networks is presented. Proper monitoring interface
is an essential prerequisite to adaptive system reconfiguration in parallel
on-chip computing. This work proposes a DMC (dual monitoring communication)
architecture to support self-awareness on the NoC platform. One type of
monitoring communication is integrated with data channel, in order to trace the
run-time profile of data communication in high-speed on-chip networking. The
other type is separate from the data communication, and is needed to report the
run-time profile to the supervising monitor. Direct latency monitoring on
mesochronous NoC is presented as a case study and is directly traced in the
integrated communication with a novel latency monitoring table in each router.
The latency information is reported by the separate monitoring communication to
the supervising monitor, which reconfigures the system to adjust the latency, for
instance by dynamic voltage and frequency scaling. With quantitative evaluation
using synthetic traces and real applications, the effectiveness and efficiency
of direct latency monitoring with DMC architecture is demonstrated. The area
overhead of DMC architecture is estimated to be small in 65nm CMOS technology.
