-----
Scope
-----

The deployment of many applications in distributed systems is often
underpinned by cooperative schemes, across dynamic and heterogeneous
environments. The cooperative behaviour of dynamic entities is often
motivated by the need to achieve a specific objective, and is facilitated
by a mediation framework. Cooperative systems are characterised by their
degree of distribution, the underlying mode of interaction and the level
of autonomy of the entities. Client-server architectures, P2P systems,
GRID systems, multi-agent systems (MAS), Cloud platforms as well as foundational
systems such as the Web identify different models of cooperative behaviour.

Within the scope of cooperation, architectural frameworks in e-commerce,
e-government, e-learning and computer supported cooperative work (CSCW) have
been successfully introduced in order to generate synergy between humans and
systems. Interoperability, resource and process management, configuration,
adaptation and negotiation define a wide spectrum of cooperation, from reactive
behaviour to proactive intervention.

- Hypermedia systems in cooperation
- Context-awareness in cooperative systems
- Self-configuration and adaptivity in cooperative systems
- Autonomous and emergent behaviour in cooperative systems
- Service management in cooperative systems
