Bigraph-Ensured Interoperability for System(-of-Systems) Emergence

On the Move to Meaningful Internet Systems: OTM 2014 Workshops
Today's complexity of distributed application systems, such
as dynamic supply networks, require a systems-of-systems (SoS) perspec-
tive for effective adaptation and sustainable use. Those systems not only
need to be operated as separate systems (e.g., optimizing each transport
modality in supply networks), but also are required to capture complex
situations as interconnected entity (e.g., adapting a transport chain
involving different modalities according to weather conditions). Systems-
of-systems can handle such challenges through emerging behavior, while
letting each of the involved systems operate separately. The latter property
requires interoperability of systems that can be preserved even in
dynamically changing environments applying the theory of bigraphs.
Abstract relationships allow not only the representation of dynamic interaction
but also the respecification of these systems through behavior
adaptations. This abstraction supports cross-system decomposition as
well as composition of interaction patterns for the purpose of emergent
behavior. We demonstrate the potential of this approach by orchestrating
two distributed and independent systems. SoS behavior orchestration
enables to directly respond to changes in the application system context.
