Nowadays, most of the basic web services use instant location information for providing suitable content to smartphone users. However, more intelligent smartphone applications such as context-based search and advertising, early warning systems and city-wide sensing applications may require additional information about smartphone users such as their mobility profiles. To meet more personalized demand of these applications we propose TRACK ME: A new web-based framework for smartphone applications with personalized lightweight mobility service as well as location tracking and mobility profile construction. We showed that our personalized mobility service supports different smartphone applications and it is lightweight enough to provide fast access to the mobility profiles of smartphone users. We illustrate the benefits of our mobility service on two smartphone applications: location prediction and air pollution exposure risk estimation.

Improved Genetic Algorithm based Approach for QoS Aware Web Service Composition
Yilmaz, A. Erdinc; Karagöz, Pınar (2014-07-02)
Use of web services is one of the most rapidly developing technologies. Since web services are defined by XML-based standards to overcome platform dependency, they are very eligible to integrate with each other in order to establish new services. This composition enables us to reuse existing services, which results in less cost and time consumption. One of the recent problems with web service composition is to maximize the overall Quality of Service (QoS) of the composed service. Most common elements of QoS...
Integrating social features into mobile local search
KAHVECİ, basri; Altıngövde, İsmail Sengör; ULUSOY, ÖZGÜR (2016-12-01)
As availability of Internet access on mobile devices develops year after year, users have been able to make use of search services while on the go. Location information on these devices has enabled mobile users to use local search services to access various types of location-related information easily. Mobile local search is inherently different from general web search. Namely, it focuses on local businesses and points of interest instead of general web pages, and finds relevant search results by evaluating...
Web service testing for domain specific web service discovery framework
Utku, Selma; Karagöz, Pınar; Department of Computer Engineering (2012)
The reliability of web services is important for both users and other service providers, with which they are in interaction. Thus, to guarantee reliability of the web services that are invoked and integrated at runtime, automatic testing of web services is needed. In web service testing, different test cases for web services are generated. The most important issue is to generate the most appropriate value for input parameters of web services at runtime. In this thesis, we developed a method for automatic we...
Query interface and query language for domain specific web service discovery system
Özdil, Hilal; Karagöz, Pınar; Department of Computer Engineering (2011)
As the number of the published web services increase, discovery of the web services with the desired functionality and quality is becoming a challenging process. Selecting the appropriate web services among the ones that o er the same functionality is also a challenging task. The web service repositories like UDDI (Universal Description Discovery and Integration) support only the syntactic searchs. Quality of service parameters for the published web services can not be queried over these repositories. We ha...
Automatic quality of service (QOS) evaluation for domain specific web service discovery framework
Aşkaroğlu, Emra; Karagöz, Pınar; Department of Computer Engineering (2011)
Web Service technology is one of the most rapidly developing contemporary technologies. Nowadays, Web Services are being used by a large number of projects and academic studies all over the world. As the use of Web service technology is increasing, it becomes harder to find the most suitable web service which meets the Quality of Service (QoS) as well as functional requirements of the user. In addition, quality of the web services (QoS) that take part in the software system becomes very important. In this t...
