An Integrated Framework for Adaptive Socio-Technical Systems

Giacomo Cabri, Massimo Cossentino, Enrico Denti, Paolo Giorgini, Ambra Molesini, Monica Mordonini, Michele Tomaiuolo, Luca Sabatucci
Socio-Technical Systems (STSs) are kinds of systems that inherently need to be conceived, designed and developed taking into account both the technological and the human/organisational aspects: a wide set of entities need to interact in a coordinated, secure, and adaptive way, perceiving and manipulating the environment in which they are immersed and its evolution. Accordingly, designing STSs means to combine suitable enabling technologies into an operational framework, integrating and coordinating a multiplicity of processes. In this paper we present a possible framework for STSs development, with special emphasis on adaptivity, security and privacy.
