Abstract

Editorial to the Special Issue The emerging world is pervasive and strives towards integrating people, technology, environment, and knowledge. This emerging vision is moving towards approaches that set the user at the center of attention, while technology becomes invisible, hidden in the natural surrounding, but still functional, autonomous, self-adaptive, present when needed and interactive [Vasilakos et al. 2009]. Achieving this vision requires innovative network architectures and services. Communication/networking approaches should become task- and knowledge-driven, enabling a service-oriented, requirement, and trust-driven development of communication networks. The growing complexity of control requires increasingly distributed and self-organizing structures, relying on simple and dependable elements that are able to collaborate to construct sophisticated behaviors and that can adapt to an evolving situation in which new resources can become available, administrative domains can change, and economic models can vary accordingly. The networking and seamless integration of concepts, technologies, and devices in a dynamically changing environment poses many challenges to the research community. We are de nitely faced with such crucial issues as interoperability, programmability, management, openness, reliability, performance, context awareness, intelligence, autonomy, security, privacy, safety, semantics, etc. This special issue explores the challenges in technologies that will help realize the vision where devices
