Abstract

This paper presents CooPS, which is a method for Coordinating Personalized Services. These services are primarily offered to mobile users. The concept of services is the object of intense investigations from both academia and industry. However, very little has been accomplished so far regarding first, personalizing services for the benefit of mobile users, and second, providing the appropriate methodological support for those (i.e., designers) who will be specifying the operations of personalization. Various obstacles still exist such as lack of techniques for modeling and specifying the integration of personalization into services, and existing approaches for service composition typically facilitate orchestration only, while neglecting contexts of users and services. CooPS consists of several steps ranging from service definition and personalization to service deployment. Each step has some representation techniques, which aim at facilitating the specification and validation of the operations of coordinating personalized services. © Springer-Verlag 2006.
