Application-Layer Fault-Tolerance Protocols increases awareness of the need for application-layer fault-tolerance (ALFT) through introduction of problems and qualitative analysis of solutions. A necessary read for researchers, practitioners, and students in dependability engineering, this book collects emerging research to offer a systematic, critical organization of the current knowledge in ALFT.
He is also a researcher with IBBT, the Flemish Interdisciplinary Institute for Broad-Band Technology. Vincenzo De Florio published about seventy reviewed research papers, fourteen which were for international research journals. He is member of various conference program committees. He is local team leader for IST-NMP Project ARFLEX (Adaptive Robots for Flexible Manufacturing Systems). He is an editorial reviewer for several international conferences and journals. He also served as expert reviewer for the Austrian FFF. In the last few years, he has been teaching courses on computer architectures, advanced C language programming, and a course of seminars in computer science. He is co-chair of workshop ADAMUS (the Second IEEE WoWMoM Workshop on Adaptive and DependAble Mission- and bUsiness-critical mobile Systems, http://www.adamus.ua.ac.be). Vincenzo’s interests include resilient computing, dependability, adaptive systems, embedded systems, distributed and parallel computing, linguistic support to non-functional services, complex dynamic systems modelling and simulation, autonomic computing, and more recently service orientation.

Technological Innovations in Adaptive and Dependable Systems: Advancing Models and Concepts provides high quality, effective approaches to design, develop, maintain, evaluate, and benchmark adaptive and dependable systems that are built to sustain quality of service and experience despite the occurrence of potentially significant and sudden changes or failures in their infrastructure and surrounding environments. Providing academicians, practitioners, and researchers with insight, this book contains useful software and hardware aspects, conceptual models, applied and theoretical approaches, paradigms, and other technological innovations.
Readers learn how to use a domain model to make a complex development effort more focused and dynamic. A core of best practices and standard patterns provides a common language for the development team. A shift in emphasis–refactoring not just the code but the model underlying the code–in combination with the frequent iterations of Agile development leads to deeper insight into domains and enhanced communication between domain expert and programmer. Domain-Driven Design then builds on this foundation, and addresses modeling and design for complex systems and larger organizations.Specific topics covered include:
With this book in hand, object-oriented developers, system analysts, and designers will have the guidance they need to organize and focus their work, create rich and useful domain models, and leverage those models into quality, long-lasting software implementations.
Innovations and Approaches for Resilient and Adaptive Systems is a comprehensive collection of knowledge on increasing the notions and models in adaptive and dependable systems. This book aims to enhance the awareness of the role of adaptability and resilience in system environments for researchers, practitioners, educators, and professionals alike.
The algorithms in this book represent a body of knowledge developed over the last 50 years that has become indispensable, not just for professional programmers and computer science students but for any student with interests in science, mathematics, and engineering, not to mention students who use computation in the liberal arts.
