Abstract
This study is aimed at proposing a new type of ubiquitous decision support system (u-DSS) portal which is embedded with two important mechanisms like an intelligent ontology management module (i-OMM) and multi-agent coordination mechanism (MACM). The proposed portal provides timely decision support to the involved decision entities (represented as agents) by taking advantage of the two mechanisms embedded on the portal. The most important virtue of the proposed portal is that it can resolve two problems such as semantic discordance and data confliction which are occurring very often in an ubiquitous computing environment. Frequent requests of revising the already established decision information due to the rapid changes in decision entities' requirements require the extremely flexible and intelligent u-DSS vehicle like theproposed mechanism. In this sense, the i-OMM is designed to provide support to solving the semantic discordance in the way that the i-OMM virtually integrates ontology view (IOV) to integrate heterogeneous ontology among the agents engaged inubiquitous commerce situations. Then the i-OMM sends the IOV to the MACM to resolve the conflicts among the involved agents. The proposed u-DSS portal was applied to the u-fulfillment problem in which all the involved decisionagents need their own requirements to be satisfied seamlessly and timely. The experimental results show that the proposed u-DSS portal is very robust and promising in the field of u-DSS and context modeling.

Abstract
본 연구에서는 유비쿼터스 환경에서 요구사항 변화에 따른 동적 다중 에이전트들의 의사결정 지원을 위한 유비쿼터스 의사결정지원시스템 포털(ubiquitous decision support system, u-DSS Portal)을 제안한다. u-DSS 포털은 의사 결정과정에서 발생할 수 있는 데이터의 의미적 충돌 해결을 위한 지능형 온톨로지 관리 모듈(intelligent-Ontology Management Module, i-OMM), 데이터 충돌 해결을 위한 다중에이전트 관리 모듈(Multi-agent Coordination Module, MACM)과 지식정제모듈(Knowledge Refinery Module, KRM)들을 포함한다. 즉 제안된 모듈들은 다중에이전트들과 협력을 통해 문제를 해결해야 할 경우에는 개별 에이전트들이 보유한 각 온톨로지의 통합 및 데이터간의 충돌 해결을 지원한다. i-OMM은 개별 에이전트들이 보유하고 있는 이질적인 온톨로지의 통합을 위해, 문제해결을 위한 하나의 통합된 새로운 동적 온톨로지 뷰(integrated ontology view, IOV)의 생성을 지원한다. MACM은 고객 에이전트들의 요구사항 변화에 따라 관련 개별 에이전트들 간의 데이터 충돌을 해결하여 에이전트들의 의사결정과정을 지원한다. KRM은 문제 해결과정에서 생성된 가상의 온톨로지 뷰를 재사용할 수 있도록 정제하는 역할을 수행한다. 따라서 본 연구에서 제안된 알고리즘은 고객의 요구사항을 최우선으로 하는 유풀필먼트(u-Fulfillment) 시스템에 적용되었으며 그 활용 대상은 고객, 판매자, 제조업체, 및 배송업체의 배송차량들의 에이전트들로 구성되었다.
