A study on effective proactive service in pervasive computing environment
free download

Pervasive systems are becoming increasingly popular, with the appearance and penetration of mobile devices such as smart phones. Proactive service is one of the most important fields of research in pervasive computing . We propose a method for an effective proactive service Summer school participation included more than intellectual discussions: lecturers and attendees alike played music and took part in team games of volleyball, table tennis, and pool. Some cycled in and around the immediate countryside on Dagstuhls bikes and used

Spray Computers: Frontiers of Self-organization for Pervasive Computing .
free download

We envision a future in which clouds of microcomputers can be sprayed in an environment to provide, by spontaneously networking with each other, an endlessly range of futuristic applications. However, beside the vision, spraying also act as a powerful metaphor for

Enhancing a Pervasive Computing Environment with Lexical Knowledge
free download

A pervasive computing environment consists typically of a large heterogeneous collection of networked devices. This paper describes the use of lexical knowledge to improve a pervasive computing environment. In an ongoing research project, we are exploring ways to

Evaluating Gaia using a pervasive computing benchmark
free download

Pervasive computing allows the coupling of the physical world to the information world, and provides a wealth of ubiquitous services and applications that allow users, machines, data, applications, and physical spaces to interact seamlessly with one another. In , we

Managing Ad-Hoc Trust Relationships in Pervasive Computing Environment
free download

Trust is considered as a fundamental aspect for inter-domain relationships in dynamic open environments. In this paper, we have reviewed existing trust models and their drawbacks when they are applied to pervasive computing . We present PTM, a new automatisedDevelopments in computing and architectural environments have evolved together to a surprising degree since the 1990s: Virtual Reality VRrepresents one of these developments, however, this has remained of greater academic than practical interest for a

A distance learning curriculum on pervasive computing
free download

Engineering of pervasive computing (PerComp) systems is a new scientific field and from an educational perspective needs to draw from a large number of knowledge domains. The appearance of related courses in computer science curricula has a decade history, but the

An Active Architecture for Managing Events in Pervasive Computing Environments.
free download

Many dramatizations have depicted a fully automated home living environment, where actions and events are understood or even anticipated. While the realization of such environments requires innovations on many fronts, our current research focuses on the

Applying digital smart Technologies for a sustainable Architecture: Pervasive computing allows the design of sustainable architecture
free download

One of the major advantages of pervasive computing is its positive sustainable impact. This paper introduces an approach for architectural design related to pervasive computing , which is namedfuture ready. It is a discussion on the sustainable impact of pervasive digital

A flexible semantic service composition framework for pervasive computing environments
free download

The number of transistors on integrated circuits doubles approximately every two years says Moores Law. So far, this estimation seems to be accurate over the years. Microcontrollers are used in TV sets, remote controls, video recorders, car electronics

The scooby eventbased pervasive computing infrastructure
free download

In this abstract we describe the lower levels of the Natural Language Composition project. We are developing a pervasive computing infrastructure, which we have called Scooby through which we will be investigating a number of issues in the development of pervasive

Utilizing context in adaptive information services for pervasive computing environments
free download

Ubiquitous and pervasive computing environments have the potential to provide rich sources of information about a user and their surroundings. Such context information form a basis upon which Adaptive Information Services be adapted. However, the

Challenges for mobile wireless devices for next generation in pervasive computing
free download

What is really different about mobile wireless device The devices are smaller and bits travel by wireless rather than Ethernet. How can this possibly make any difference Isnta mobile system merely a special case of a distributed system Are there any new and deep issues to

A distributed proxy system for functionality adaptation in pervasive computing environments
free download

In the recent decade, we have witnessed the proliferation of mobile devices and a revolution in peoples way of computing . Today, computing is no longer limited to a particular location using some stationary computing devices, such as Personal Computers (PCs) at home or in

AOP-driven variability in product lines of pervasive computing applications
free download

Problem: The demand for pervasive computing applications has increased. The great number of different devices and features per device make it difficult to quickly respond to such demand and to comply with everincreasing quality and reuse requirements Solution

Adaptation to Connectivity Loss in Pervasive Computing Environments
free download

Pervasive computing environments aim at providing users with advanced services, dynamically composed out of networked services. In these open environments, availability of specific networked service instances cannot be guaranteed over time as users move and

ISAM: A software architecture for pervasive computing
free download

Abstract The Mobile Computing is a vision of future that promises to modify the way people work and interact today. It has emerged as a new field, distinct from conventional distributed computing by its focus on mobility and its consequence. The physical and logical mobility

Casper: Containment-aware security for pervasive computing environments
free download

Over a decade after Mark Weiser defined and inaugurated the study of Ubiquitous Computing , its elusive shapes are starting to appear through the proliferation of mobile, embedded computing and wireless communications technologies. The paradigm shift away

A privacy preference model for pervasive computing
free download

Widespread acceptance of e-government and m-government (and for that matter pervasive - Government) services will only take place when citizens are satisfied that personal data is stored, transmitted and processed with respect to their privacy. We compare and contrast
