Hello,

I am Ion Constantinescu and I am currently working on a Ph.D. thesis on 
service integration in open environments.

One fundamental assumption of our work is that the future internet will 
contain a huge number of services in the order of  10^9.

The good thing about that will be that we will have allot of choices for 
solving service integration issues.

The difficult thing will be the reasoning on how to make those choices, 
reasoning that will have to take into account the specifics of open 
environments.

Concretely I am actively involved in developments related to the 
following areas:
- discovery - creating efficient directories of large numbers of service 
descriptions
- composition - completely different to planning in that the possible 
operators cannot be known a priori and must be discovered incrementally
- reliable execution - determining recovery strategies by using 
replanning techniques for complex service orchestrations
- long running transactions - building semantic compensation in the 
integration solutions

Currently I am in the third year of my Ph.D. with Prof. Boi Faltings in 
the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory of the Swiss Federal Institute of 
Technology Lausanne (http://liawww.epfl.ch/People/cion.html).

Our lab had also a major contribution to the Agentcities project 
(www.agentcities.org).

thank you,
Ion
