Bio-Inspired P2P Systems: The Case of Multidimensional Overlay
Raffaele Giordanelli, Carlo Mastroianni, Michela Meo
Article No.: 35
This article presents an ant-based approach that enhances the flexibility, robustness and load balancing characteristics of structured P2P systems. Most notably, the approach allows peer indexes and resource keys to be defined on different and...
Comparison of Decision-Making Strategies for Self-Optimization in Autonomic Computing Systems
Martina Maggio, Henry Hoffmann, Alessandro V. Papadopoulos, Jacopo Panerati, Marco D. Santambrogio, Anant Agarwal, Alberto Leva
Article No.: 36
Autonomic computing systems are capable of adapting their behavior and resources thousands of times a second to automatically decide the best way to accomplish a given goal despite changing environmental conditions and demands. Different decision...
Many large-scale utility computing infrastructures comprise heterogeneous hardware and software resources. This raises the need for scalable resource selection services that identify resources that match application requirements. Such a service...
A Lightweight Method for Automated Design of Convergence in Network Protocols
Aly Farahat, Ali Ebnenasir
Article No.: 38
Design and verification of Self-Stabilizing (SS) network protocols are difficult tasks in part because of the convergence property that requires an SS protocol to recover to a set of legitimate states from any state in its state...
Axiomatization of Socio-Economic Principles for Self-Organizing Institutions: Concepts, Experiments and Challenges
Jeremy Pitt, Julia Schaumeier, Alexander Artikis
Article No.: 39
We address the problem of engineering self-organizing electronic institutions for resource allocation in open, embedded, and resource-constrained systems. In such systems, there is decentralized control, competition for resources and an...
