Service composition allows distributed application, such as multimedia application, to be composed from atomic service units and to adapt dynamically to users' requirements and environment conditions in pervasive computing system. It augments the adaptation action space for the application of...
Ant-based routing protocols for mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) have been widely explored, but most of them are essentially single-path routing methods that tend to impose a heavy burden on the hosts along the shortest path from source to destination. In this paper, we combine swarm intelligence...
Few e-Learning systems in pervasive environments take learning activities as a part of the learning process and give much flexibility to instructors to define a structural course which is helpful for students to navigate distributed learning resources. In this paper, we propose a process control...
The importance of ubiquitous environments has increased in recent years as it has been recognized as a paradigm that can improve the quality of life of many sectors of the population especially care of elderly people by providing automated environments that adapt and respond to its inhabitants'...
This paper addresses context in intelligent context-aware systems to support personalised service provision and cooperative computing. Context processing, context modelling, ontology, and OWL are introduced and a context reasoning ontology presented. Context implementation reduces to a decision...
A next generation network (NGN) exploits advanced multiple broadband, quality of service (QoS)-enabled service technologies. The NGN is aimed at users and service-related functions, including web services. Recently, web service composition (WSC) has become a new approach for overcoming many...
Auctions are mechanisms that formalize the rules with which automated trading schemes can be conducted, and in this paper we model the interaction of bidder and seller agents in sequential computerized auctions. We study the outcome of strategies that a designated ‘special bidder’ (SB) may...
In this paper, we propose a resource-aware solution to achieving reliable and scalable stream diffusion in a probabilistic model, i.e. where communication links and processes are subject to message losses and crashes, respectively. Our solution is resource-aware in the sense that it limits the...
There are two types of dynamic elements in a pervasive system: the first is where a context varies with shifting environments, and the second is where variables are defined by the dynamic requirements of an application. This makes improving adaptability to dynamic change an important topic in...
