Here we present the overall objectives and approach of the SAPERE (" Self-aware Pervasive Service Ecosystems ") project, focussed on the development of a highly-innovative nature-inspired framework, suited for the decentralized deployment, execution, and management, of self-aware and adaptive pervasive services in future network scenarios. © Selection and(More)
—The development of communications systems in general, and the Internet in particular, has given billions of people the opportunity to connect and share content with audiences to which they would otherwise never have had access to. Nowadays, anyone can publish and share content, whether personal or not, on the Internet. In addition, the ubiquitousness of(More)
—In large scale networks, agents must use partial knowledge obtained from local interactions to reason about their environment. They require efficient mechanisms to allow them to retrieve and aggregate information beyond their communication range. Even though proposals have been presented for gathering information in large scale wireless sensor networks, it(More)
—The possibility to have millions of computational devices interconnected across urban environments opens up novel application areas. In such highly distributed scenarios, applications must gain awareness as a result of opportunistic encounters with co-located devices, a departure from traditional reasoning approaches. We envision situated awareness as an(More)
