Advanced Information Systems Engineering

Author: Schahram Dustdar Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 03/06/2020

This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 32nd International Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering, CAiSE 2020, held in Grenoble, France, in June 2020.* The 33 full papers presented in this volume were carefully reviewed and selected from 185 submissions. The book also contains one invited talk in full paper length. The papers were organized in topical sections named: distributed applications; AI and big data in IS; process mining and analysis; requirements and modeling; and information systems engineering. Abstracts on the CAiSE 2020 tutorials can be found in the back matter of the volume. *The conference was held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Smart Cities

Smart Cities

Author: Schahram Dustdar, Stefan Nastic, Ognjen Scekic Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 04/08/2018

This book presents a coherent, novel vision of Smart Cities, built around a value-driven architecture. It describes the limitations of the contemporary notion of the Smart City and argues that the next developmental step must actively include not only the physical infrastructure, but information technology and human infrastructure as well, requiring the intensive integration of technical solutions from the Internet of Things (IoT) and social computing. The book is divided into five major parts, the first of which provides both a general introduction and a coherent vision that ties together all the components that are required to realize the vision for Smart Cities. Part II then discusses the provisioning and governance of Smart City systems and infrastructures. In turn, Part III addresses the core technologies and technological enablers for managing the social component of the Smart City platform. Both parts combine state-of-the-art research with cutting-edge industrial efforts in the respective fields. Lastly, Part IV details a road map to achieving Cyber-Human Smart Cities. Rounding out the coverage, it discusses the concrete technological advances needed to move beyond contemporary Smart Cities and toward the Smart Cities of the future. Overall, the book provides an essential overview of the latest developments in the areas of IoT and social computing research, and outlines a research roadmap for a closer integration of the two areas in the context of the Smart City. As such, it offers a valuable resource for researchers and graduate students alike.

Socially Enhanced Services Computing

Socially Enhanced Services Computing

Author: Schahram Dustdar Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 12/10/2014

Socially enhanced Services Computing deals with a novel and exciting new field at the intersection between Social Computing, Service-oriented Computing, Crowd Computing, and Cloud Computing. The present work presents a collection of selected papers by the editors of this volume, which they feel will help the reader in understanding this field. The approach discussed allows for a seamless integration of people into trusted dynamic compositions of Human-provided Services and Software-based services, thus empowering new interaction models and processes in massive collaboration scenarios in a Future Internet.

Service Engineering

Service Engineering

Author: Schahram Dustdar, Fei Li Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 11/10/2014

Service engineering is increasingly posing challenges to traditional software engineering methodologies including specification, modeling, architecture, and verification, just to name a few. On the other hand, the latest advancements in software engineering are continuously leveraged in Service Engineering research, especially in the design and implementation of service-oriented systems. Several mutual impacts between service engineering and software engineering could be observed in the last decade, and many research efforts have been devoted to the field. However, in spite of the considerable efforts and significant contributions, few have attempted to summarize the research results systematically.
