Traditional communication networks have relied on accurate and dependable location information in order to deliver a range of critical and value-added services for decades. The location of a device attached to a network is a fundamental artifact of any access network, regardless of underlying technology. The success of the Internet, fuelled further by the(More)
Progress in microprocessor and communication system technology is leading to the emergence of new large scale distributed architectures whose power increases proportionally to the number of processor elements. Such architectures support execution of traditional distributed applications based on the client-server paradigm as well as parallel applications.(More)
We describe the work we are conducting on new middleware<lb>services for dependable and secure mobile systems. This<lb>work is based on approaches à la peer-to-peer in order to<lb>circumvent the problems introduced by the lack of infras-<lb>tructure in self-organizing networks of mobile nodes, such<lb>as MANETs. The mechanisms we propose are based(More)
This first session focused on one of the most challenging research tracks in distributed operating systems : naming and finding information. Recent advances in storage and network technology have made large scale distributed databases a reality. The major problem is now to invent new paradigms for structuring these wide area distributed systems in order to(More)
