Résumé

In this article, we propose a model for networked artefacts inspired from molecular chemistry. It demonstrates the intrinsic complexity of the domain illustrated with unsolved problems such as mastering the semantics of networked artefacts. Based on this model, we identify similarities with the service-oriented computing paradigm and suggest possible avenues for collaboration between Software Engineering and researchers in EUD including: semantic alignment between end-user programming languages and service descriptions, and human service interaction as a transversal issue in software design.
