Time: 10.00-11.00 EET
Host: Prof. Christos Schizas (

Reusing services available on the Web and software from external sources is a task with different dimensions that require care. In this talk we will focus on two dimensions of reuse: 1) privacy from the perspective of end-users, and 2) compliance to licenses when employing open source software as an obligation of software engineers. For the first dimension, we will see how users can specify their privacy preferences in a Service-Oriented Computing (SOC) environment and how these can be integrated in the provision of context-aware Web Services. In the second dimension we will elaborate on the automation of the procedure of combining Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) that carries different software licenses.
