Consolidating recent research in the area, the Handbook on Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing: Status and Perspective illustrates the design, implementation, and deployment of mobile and ubiquitous systems, particularly in mobile and ubiquitous environments, modeling, database components, and wireless infrastructures. Supplying an overarching perspective, the book is ideal for researchers, graduate students, and industry practitioners in computer science and engineering interested in recent developments in mobile and ubiquitous computing. It discusses new trends in intelligent systems, reviews sensory input and multimedia information, and examines embedded real-time systems. With coverage that ...
Autonomic Computing and Networking presents introductory and advanced topics on autonomic computing and networking with emphasis on architectures, protocols, services, privacy & security, simulation and implementation testbeds. Autonomic computing and networking are new computing and networking paradigms that allow the creation of self-managing and self-controlling computing and networking environment using techniques such as distributed algorithms and context-awareness to dynamically control networking functions without human interventions. Autonomic networking is characterized by recovery from failures and malfunctions, agility to changing networking environment, self-optimization and self-awareness. The self-control and management features can help to overcome the growing complexity and heterogeneity of exiting communication networks and systems. The realization of fully autonomic heterogeneous networking introduces several research challenges in all aspects of computing and networking and related fields.
This book intends to inculcate the innovative ideas for the scheduling aspect in distributed computing systems. Although the models in this book have been designed for distributed systems, the same information is applicable for any type of system. The book will dramatically improve the design and management of the processes for industry professionals. It deals exclusively with the scheduling aspect, which finds little space in other distributed operating system books. Structured for a professional audience composed of researchers and practitioners in industry, this book is also suitable as a reference for graduate-level students.
Parallel and distributed computing is one of the foremost technologies for shaping future research and development activities in academia and industry. Hyperthreading in Intel processors, hypertransport links in next generation AMD processors, multicore silicon in today’s high-end microprocessors, and emerging cluster and grid computing have moved parallel/distributed computing into the mainstream of computing. New Horizons of Parallel and Distributed Computing is a collection of self-contained chapters written by pioneering researchers to provide solutions for newly emerging problems in this field. This volume will not only provide novel ideas, work in progress and state-of-the-art techniques in the field, but will also stimulate future research activities in the area of parallel and distributed computing with applications. New Horizons of Parallel and Distributed Computing is intended for industry researchers and developers, as well as for academic researchers and advanced-level students in computer science and electrical engineering. A valuable reference work, it is also suitable as a textbook.
This volume contains the proceedings of UIC 2008, the 5th International C- ference on Ubiquitous Intelligence and Computing: Building Smart Worlds in Real and Cyber Spaces. The conference was held in Oslo, Norway, during June 23–25, 2008. The event was the ?fth meeting of this conference series. USW 2005 (First International Workshop on Ubiquitous Smart World), held in March 2005 in Taiwan, was the ?rst event in the series. This event was followed by UISW 2005 (SecondInternationalSymposiumonUbiquitousIntelligenceandSmartWorlds) held in December 2005 in Japan, by UIC 2006 (Third International Conference on Ubiquitous Intelligence and Computing: Building Smart Worlds in Real and Cyber Spaces) held in September 2006 in Wuhan and Three Gorges, China, and by UIC 2007 held in July 2007 in Hong Kong. Ubiquitous computers, networks and information are paving the road to a smart world in which computational intelligence is distributed throughout the physical environment to provide trustworthy and relevant services to people.
The refereed proceedings of the International Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Processing and Applications, ISPA 2003, held in Aizu, Japan in July 2003. The 30 revised full papers and 9 revised short papers presented together with abstracts of 4 keynotes were carefully reviewed and selected from numerous submissions. The papers are organized in topical sections on applications on Web-based and intranet systems, compiler and optimization techniques, network routing, performance evaluation of parallel systems, wireless communication and mobile computing, parallel topology, data mining and evolutionary computing, image processing and modeling, network security, and database and multimedia systems.
As communication and networking (CN) become specialized and fragmented, it is easy to lose sight that many topics in CN have common threads and because of this, advances in one sub-discipline may transmit to another. The presentation of results between different sub-disciplines of CN encourages this interchange for the advan- ment of CN as a whole. Of particular interest is the hybrid approach of combining ideas from one discipline with those of another to achieve a result that is more signi- cant than the sum of the individual parts. Through this hybrid philosophy, a new or common principle can be discovered which has the propensity to propagate throu- out this multifaceted discipline. This...
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the Third International Conference on Grid and Pervasive Computing, GPC 2008, held in Kunming, China, in May 2008. The 45 revised full papers presented together with 2 keynote lectures were carefully reviewed and selected from 184 submissions. The papers cover all current issues of grid and pervasive computing and focus on topics such as cluster computing, grid computing, high performance computing, network storage, peer-to-peer computing, pervasive computing, the Semantic Web and the Semantic Grid, and service-oriented computing.
This book constitutes the symposia and workshops of the 10th International Conference on Algorithms and Architectures for Parallel Processing, ICA3PP. Each of the sympois and workshops focuses on a particular theme and complements the spectrum of the main conference.
