So-Grid: A self-organizing Grid featuring bio-inspired algorithms
Agostino Forestiero, Carlo Mastroianni, Giandomenico Spezzano
Article No.: 5
DOI: 10.1145/1352789.1352790

This article presents So-Grid, a set of bio-inspired algorithms tailored to the decentralized construction of a Grid information system that features adaptive and self-organization characteristics. Such algorithms exploit the properties of...

A control theoretical approach to self-optimizing block transfer in Web service grids
Anastasios Gounaris, Christos Yfoulis, Rizos Sakellariou, Marios D. Dikaiakos
Article No.: 6
DOI: 10.1145/1352789.1352791

Nowadays, Web Services (WS) play an important role in the dissemination and distributed processing of large amounts of data that become available on the Web. In many cases, it is essential to retrieve and process such data in blocks, in order to...

Agent clustering based on semantic negotiation
Salvatore Garruzzo, Domenico Rosaci
Article No.: 7
DOI: 10.1145/1352789.1352792

Forming groups of agents is an important task in many agent-based applications, for example when determining a coalition of buyers in an e-commerce community or organizing different Web services in a Web services' composition. A key issue in this...
