Research from SIMPLI-CITY has been published in the International Journal of Cloud Computing: Within the paper "Cost-Driven Optimization of Cloud Resource Allocation for Elastic Processes"[1]
by S. Schulte, D. Schuller, P. Hoenisch, U. Lampe, S. Dustdar, and R. Steinmetz, the authors propose an alternative to the provision of fixed resources for today’s extensive business process landscapes. This proposed alternative is based on automatic leasing and releasing of Cloud‐based computational resources. For this, the authors present an integrated approach which addresses the cost‐driven optimization of Cloud‐based computational resources for business processes in order to realize so‐called Elastic Processes.

Furthermore, research conducted within SIMPLI-CITY has also led to the acceptance of the paper “Star-City: Semantic Traffic Analytics and Reasoning for CITY"[2] to be presented at the International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces (IUI 2014) that will take place in Haifa, Israel, February 24-27 2014.
This paper presents STAR-CITY, a system based on the research done within the SIMPLI-CITY project. STAR-CITY, which integrates (human and machine-based) sensor data using variety of formats, velocities and volumes, has been designed to provide insight on historical and real-time traffic conditions, all supporting efficient urban planning. The system demonstrates how the severity of road traffic congestion can be smoothly analyzed, diagnosed, explored and predicted using semantic web technologies. The authors present how semantic diagnosis and predictive reasoning, both using and interpreting semantics of data to deliver useful, accurate and consistent inferences, have been exploited and adapted systematized in an intelligent user interface. This prototype of semantics-aware traffic analytics and reasoning, experimented in Dublin City Ireland, works and scales efficiently with historical together with real live and heterogeneous stream data.
