    The paper “SMADL - The Social Machines Architecture Description Language” authored by Leandro Nascimento, Vinicius Garcia and Silvio Meira has been accepted for publication in the Doctoral Symposium of the 5th International Conference on Software Language Engineering (SLE) 2012 in Dresden, Germany.

    The conference will be held in September 25-28, 2012 and will be co-located with other well conferences in the area: 11th Generative Programming and Component Engineering Conference (GPCE’12) and the 4th International Workshop on Feature-Oriented Software Development (FOSD’12).

    This activity is part of the project “Social Machines and Research Team - SMaRT” and is one of the results of the PhD research being done by Leandro Nascimento.

    In order to give a brief overview of the paper, here is the abstract: We are experiencing a high growth in the number of web applications being developed. This is happening mainly because the web is going into a new phase, called programmable web, where several web-based systems make their APIs publicly available. In order to deal with the complexity of this emerging web, we define a notion of social machine and envisage a language that can describe networks of such. To start with, social machines are defined as tuples of input, output, processes, constraints, states, requests and responses; apart from defining the machines themselves, the language defines a set of connectors and conditionals that can be used to describe the interactions between any number of machines in a multitude of ways, as a means to represent real machines interacting in the real web. This work presents a preliminary version of the Social Machine Architecture Description Language (SMADL).
