Since the overdue Eighties, the CAiSE meetings have supplied a discussion board for the p- sentation and trade of study effects and useful studies in the ?eld of data structures Engineering. CAiSE 2001 was once the thirteenth convention during this sequence and used to be held from 4th to eighth June 2001 within the hotel of Int- laken situated close to the 3 recognized Swiss mountains – the Eiger, M¨ onch, and Jungfrau. The ?rst days consisted of pre-conference workshops and tutorials. The workshop issues integrated specifications engineering, assessment of modeling tools, information integration over the net, agent-oriented info platforms, and the layout and administration of information warehouses. carrying on with the culture of contemporary CAiSE meetings, there has been additionally a doctoral consortium. The p- convention tutorials have been at the subject matters of e-business versions and XML appli- tion improvement. the most convention application incorporated 3 invited audio system, tuto- als, and a panel dialogue as well as shows of the papers in those complaints. We additionally incorporated a unique ‘practice and adventure’ consultation to offer presentersanopportunitytoreportonanddiscussexperiencesandinvestigations at the use of tools and applied sciences in perform. Weextendourthankstothemembersoftheprogramcommitteeandallother referees with no whom such meetings wouldn't be attainable. this system committee, whose participants got here from 20 di?erent international locations, chosen 27 hello- caliber learn papers and three event experiences from a complete of ninety seven submissions. the themes of those papers span the wide-range of issues suitable to details structures engineering – from standards and layout via to implementation and operation of advanced and dynamic systems.

Die schnelle und effiziente Realisierung innovativer Dienstleistungen stellt zunehmend einen Erfolgsfaktor für die Wettbewerbsfähigkeit von Dienstleistungsunternehmen dar. Dienstleistungen werden in der Praxis jedoch oft "ad hoc", d.h. ohne systematische Vorgehensweise, entwickelt. Das Konzept des "Service Engineering" beschreibt Vorgehensweisen, Methoden und Werkzeugunterstützung für die systematische Planung, Entwicklung und Realisierung innovativer Dienstleistungen. Ziel des Buches ist es, Wissenschaftlern und Praktikern gleichermaßen einen Überblick über den aktuellen Kenntnisstand wie auch über zukünftige Tendenzen im provider Engineering zu geben. Die Beiträge wurden für die Neuauflage aktualisiert, zusätzlich wurden Beiträge namhafter Autoren aus Wissenschaft und Praxis in wichtigen, aber bislang unbesetzten Themenfeldern aufgenommen.

The concept that a few day robots could have feelings has captured the mind's eye of many and has been dramatized through robots and androids in such recognized video clips as 2001 area Odyssey's HAL or celebrity Trek's information. against this, the editors of this publication have assembled a panel of specialists in neuroscience and synthetic intelligence who've dared to take on the problem of even if robots could have feelings from a simply clinical perspective. The learn of the mind now usefully informs learn of the social, communicative, adaptive, regulatory, and experimental elements of emotion and provides aid for the concept that we take advantage of our personal mental responses so one can believe others' feelings. The individuals convey the numerous ways that the mind will be analyzed to make clear feelings. worry, present, and punishment offer structuring recommendations for a couple of investigations. Neurochemistry unearths the ways that diverse "neuromodulators" corresponding to serotonin, dopamine, and opioids can impact the emotional valence of the mind. And reviews of other areas akin to the amygdala and orbitofrontal cortex supply a view of the mind as a community of interacting subsystems. similar experiences in man made intelligence and robotics are mentioned and new multi-level architectures are proposed that guarantee that feelings to be carried out. it truly is now an permitted activity in robotics to construct robots that understand human expressions of emotion and will "express" simulated feelings to ease interactions with people. taking a look in the direction of destiny concepts, a few scientists posit roles for emotion with our fellow people. All of those matters are lined during this well timed and stimulating e-book that is written for researchers and graduated scholars in neuroscience, cognitive technology, psychology, robotics, and synthetic intelligence.
