COST Action IC1205: Computational Social Choice


Computational social choice is a rapidly evolving research trend concerned with the design and analysis of methods for collective decision making. It combines methods from computer science with insights from economic theory. COST Action IC1205 on Computational Social Choice is a European research network, running from 2012 to 2016, that has been set up to [...]

COST Action IC1303: Algorithms, Architectures and Platforms for Enhanced Living Environments (AAPELE)


Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) is an area of research based on Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), medical research, and sociological research. AAL is based on the notion that technology and science can provide improvements in the quality of life for people in their homes, and that it can reduce the financial burden on the budgets [...]

A Platform for Context-Aware Social Networking of Mobile Users (SmartSocial)

, ,


Advances in Information and Communication Technology (ICT), changes in user lifestyle as well as new business trends have defined new challenges for telecommunication operators. One of these challenges is how to implement “smart social functions” directly into network nodes. “A Platform for Context-Aware Social Networking of Mobile Users (SmartSocial)” project aims to address this challenge [...]

COST Action IC1404: Multi-Paradigm Modelling for Cyber-Physical Systems



Truly complex, designed systems, known as Cyber Physical Systems (CPS), are emerging that integrate physical, software, and network aspects. To date, no unifying theory nor systematic design methods, techniques and tools exist for such systems. Individual (mechanical, electrical, network or software) engineering disciplines only offer partial solutions. Multi-paradigm Modelling (MPM) proposes to model every part [...]
