The French SocEDA project aims at providing a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) platform for dynamic and complex event-driven interactions between large highly distributed and heterogeneous service systems. This platform should be able to combine a publish/subscribe mechanism (to collect events coming from heterogeneous and distributed services) with complex event processing of these collected events in order to detect interesting situations a service should react on. The SocEDA platform should also offer suggestions about relevant changes (adaptation) to do in running processes and services. The context of city logistics is chosen to show some of the basic abilities of the SocEDA platform and the relevance of event management in everyday situations.
