A Constraint-based Approach to Web Services Provisioning - Monfroy, Eric; Perrin, Olivier; Ringeissen, Christophe; Vigneron, Laurent
In this paper we consider the provisioning problem of Web services. Our framework is based on the existence of an abstract composition, i.e., the way some services of different types can be combined together in order to achieve a given task. Our approach consists in instantiating this abstract representation of a composite Web service by selecting the most appropriate concrete Web services. This instantiation is based on constraint programming techniques which allows us to match the Web services according to a given request. Our proposal performs this instantiation in a distributed manner, i.e., the solvers for each service type are...
Integrated Formal Methods - Méry, Dominique; Merz, Stephan
This volume contains the proceedings of iFM 2010, the 8th International Conference on Integrated Formal Methods. The conference took place during October 12-14, 2010, at the INRIA research center and the LORIA laboratory in Nancy, France. Previous editions were held in York, Dagstuhl, Turku, Canter- bury, Eindhoven, Oxford, and Düsseldorf. The iFM conference series seeks to promote research into the combination of different formal methods, and of formal and semi-formal methods, for system development. Such combinations are useful in order to apprehend different aspects of systems, including functional correctness, security, performance, and fault-tolerance. The conference provides a forum for discussing...

Physics and Proof Theory - Woltzenlogel Paleo, Bruno
Axiomatization of Physics (and Science in general) has many drawbacks that are correctly criticized by opposing philosophical views of Science. This paper shows that, by giving formal proofs a more promi- nent role in the formalization, many of the drawbacks can be solved and many of the opposing views are naturally conciliated. Moreover, this ap- proach allows, by means of Proof Theory, to open new conceptual bridges between the disciplines of Physics and Computer Science.
