Nowadays, Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) represents the de facto standard language for creating a description of processes and then developing executable frameworks for the overall planning and management of these processes. We describe a methodology for the development of execution adequacy criteria able to identify the main entities of the business process that are covered during execution, and to issue a warning if some entities are not covered.

Web real-time communication has enabled hassle-free, no installation, in-browser applications such as Google hangout and Multi-party video conferencing has now finally been made easy. But how can we provide acceptable quality of experience in such an interactive service? Our research aims to gain insight into what matters, and how to assess, design, and manage the services accordingly.

Collaborative data driven research and development is one of the big issues in BigData-Analysis. Still, several obstacles regarding the preservation of ownership over the shared data need to be overcome to enable the techniques to unfold their full potential. This especially concerns the detection of partners that leak valuable data to the outside world.

The HOBBIT project aims at abolishing the barriers in the adoption and deployment of Big Linked Data. To this end, HOBBIT will provide open benchmarking reports that allow to assess the fitness of existing solutions for their purposes. These benchmarks will be based on data that reflects reality and measures industry relevant Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) with comparable results using standardized hardware.

The research area of the Italian National Research Council (CNR) in Pisa is a 130,000 m2 village where 3000 people live and move daily. It can thus be considered as a laboratory where smart solutions to problems that can be encountered in any town or city can be tested.

The complex provider landscape in cloud computing makes incident handling difficult, as cloud service providers (CSPs) with end-user customers do not necessarily get sufficient information about incidents that occur at upstream CSPs.
