ACSI (Artifact-Centric Service Interoperation) is a three year EU STREP Project, funded within the European Union 7th Framework Programme Objective 1.2 "Internet of Services, Software and Virtualisation" (FP7-ICT-2009-5-Objective 1.2).
The over-arching objective of the proposed research is to dramatically reduce the effort and lead-time of designing, deploying, maintaining, and joining into environments that support service collaborations. The project will develop a rich framework based on two novel notions: interoperation hubs and dynamic artifacts. Interoperation hubs enable flexible, scalable support for service collaborations in an open network. Dynamic artifacts provide an approach to modeling and deploying business processes to simplify the management of data and interaction between different services and organizations. The ACSI research will substantially extend current verification and synthesis techniques to incorporate data along with process, and will develop the next generation of process mining research by generalizing it to handle data along with process.
