Contribution to the FIArch Design Principles

SOFI contributed to the undefinedFIArch Design Principles document, particularly two of the "seeds" included in the document are based on contributions of SOFI: "5.1.1 Resources Awareness" and " 5.1.2 Dependability Logic.

SOFI presented on the topic of Resource Awareness

At the last FIArch workshop SOFI presented on the topic of Resource Awareness. These slides and other contributions on the "Dependability Logic" seed have been included in the presentation of Ionna Papafili.

Design Principles for the Future Internet

This goes back to our original presentation on Design Principles for the Future Internet. Mainly two changes has been applied to our contribution in the final FIArch report:

  1. The seed "service awareness" has been generalized to "resource awareness". The choice of " “resource” instead of “service” is to emphasize that the same concept may be applied also to resource not offered as a service. The content has been summarized, removing details that was more the description of architectural choices than part of the principle.
  2. The seed named "Self-aware Dependability" has been renamed "Dependability Logic". In this case, a part a change in the name, the contribution is basically unchanged."
