Contribution à la malléabilité des collecticiels : une approche basée sur les services Web et les agents logiciels

Abstract : The aim of CSCW (Computer Supported Cooperative Work) is to find ways in which applications should improve collaborative work between individuals. Hence, there is great need to address constraints related to the lack of flexibility and rigidity of current collaborative systems, through the adoption of adequate solutions to implement a better collaboration, depending on user' needs and the task that is being done. Therefore, the field of CSCW must evolve with the evolution of systems and technologies that affects our daily lives, especially the internet evolution that makes us completely dependent on the services and applications that "virtually" exist, where most people spend a lot of their time collaborating and exploiting methods to find and use services that meet their preferences. The development of CSCW systems appears essential to address the exponential growth of internet technologies to create or reuse applications to assist the community work of men, known as collaborative applications, or groupware. In this work, the thesis covers collaborative aspects of a system, and the questions concerning its integration. More specifically, the main objective is to provide a platform for "tailorable" collaboration, where the services offered by the groupware can be adapted to the changing and diverse needs of users. Accordingly, strong requirements arise in terms of adaptability, by composing or integrating new services without stopping the collaboration process and interoperability between the system's components, especially if users are using incompatible or heterogeneous applications. A proposed solution is to use the concepts of web services, integrated with the concepts of multi-agent systems (MAS). Thus, the creation, addition, deletion or dynamic manipulation of the system's components will be done via the web services. In addition, research, invocation and integration of these services will be done using software agents with minimal user assistance, depending on users' preferences. In this thesis, we try to build a bridge between theoretical concepts which are developed in research laboratories, and technologies being developed exponentially in the industrial sector, hence, creating a synergy of theory and concepts, to design more efficient collaborative systems, that are better suited to the everyday computing world.
