Project Objectives - The growing complexity of distributed systems calls for models and technologies that promote system predictability and verification. Formal methods and declarative technologies have recently witnessed a growing interest as a vehicle to address such issues. The SOCS project aims at a providing computational logic model for the description, analysis and verification of global and open societies of heterogeneous computees, intended as abstractions of the entities that populate open and global computing environments.
