Recording and monitoring patients with cancer in distributed databases, generally called registries, present a priority in cases in which these diseases have become a major public health problem. The cancer registries contain a comprehensive collection of information about patients that enter under the incidence of the certain disease, extended to population level and they are essential in order to improve the quality of care and survival for patients. The aim of our research is to develop a multiagent system with the goal of automating the process of registration using one of the agent-oriented software engineering methodologies. The INGENIAS methodology is selected based on more evaluation criteria: concepts and properties, modeling language, model-related, and organizational. The analysis-toimplementation procedure of the multiagent system, following the INGENIAS approach, consists in the presentation of five basic concepts: organization, agent, tasks/goals, interaction, and environment. Following the methodology a prototype is implemented. The prototype is tested in a medical centre responsible with the cancer regional registry management and the experimental results show the potential of the multiagent approach.

Paper presents an on-going research regarding the concept of cooperative SCADA systems, in order to fulfill the requirements of hydropower management correlated with integrated water resource management. The SCADA cooperative systems, ensure more than the individual assigned functions of each entity, but also providing some envelope functions, created by the mechanism implemented, defined by the authors as "federative SCADA". It is presented technical requirements of cooperative instruments for SCADA federation system, designed to work on a common resource of water: hydropower plant control system, water distribution networks, hydrological and meteorological data. The collaborative software mechanisms assures the management support the interconnection of individual systems in order to provide an added value, the interoperability of the resulted enhanced-system. © IFAC.

The paper presents the control architecture of the PENTROB reconfigurable parallel robot with five degrees of freedom, pointing out several ways of reducing the electric energy consumption. Based on the implicit functions which characterize the relation between the coordinates of the active joints and the end-effector pose, the control functions are determined. The control program of the robot is described, presenting the internal architecture of the software and hardware components together with the man-machine interface which provides four possibilities of controlling the robot. The energy consumption reduction is approached through several different ways: the use of an intelligent driver, the configuration of the driver using the advanced microstepping control technique. © IFAC.

This article intends to introduce the concept of federative SCADA systems in order to fulfill the requirements of evolving critical systems. The SCADA Federation is a cooperative system which ensures more than the individual assigned functions of each entity, but also provide some envelope functions created by the mechanism implemented into each federative SCADA systems member. It defines the structure, the conceptual model of the federation, the set of rules imposed to the federation members, the global tasks of the federation, the envelope functions and the offered services, preserving in the meantime all the individual systems functionally which are improved by integration synergy. The federation assures the management support of interconnected individual critical systems, using different technologies and methods to enable the participation of existing stand-alone SCADA systems to the federation, in order to provide an added value, the interoperability of the resulted enhanced-system. The concept may be prospectively exploited in order to carry out the integration among several evolving critical SCADA systems. To all types of critical systems: safety critical, mission critical, business critical and security critical, the federative SCADA systems offer a support to decrease their level of criticality. The topic of coordination and interoperability involves system of systems (SoS) approaches.

The production of green energy from wind power is a topic of great importance nowadays and of wide interest throughout the world. The system described in this paper allows an in-depth evaluation of the energetic efficiency of the green power solution proposed to power a measuring station located in a remote location, for which we have available estimated values for the wind speed. Our goal is to study the difference between the values proposed with the aid of theoretical algorithms for energy production estimation and the field data. By studying this differences new solutions can be proposed to optimize the algorithms.
