UbiComp applications operate within an extremely dynamic and heterogeneous environment and have to dynamically adapt to changes in their environment as a result of users' or other actors' activities. So context definition, representation, management and use become important factors that affect their operation. To ease the development of such applications it(More)
Ubiquitous computing (UbiComp) applications operate within an extremely dynamic and heterogeneous environment. Thus context definition, representation, management and use become important factors that affect their operation. UbiComp applications have to dynamically adapt to changes in their environment as a result of users' or other actors' activities. To(More)
Abs t r ac t . We give an overview of the parallelization work done in PAROS. The specific parallelization objective has been to improve the speed of airline crew scheduling, on a network of workstations. The work is based on the Carmen System, which is used by most European airlines for this task. We give a brief background to the problem. The two most(More)
In this paper, we present an approach to aggregating and using devices that support the everyday life of human users in ambient intelligence environments. These execution environments are complex and changing over time, since the devices of the environments are numerous and heterogeneous, and they may appear or disappear at any time. In order to(More)
The crew planning problem has been successfully solved on a loosely connected network of workstations (NOW) using advanced computational techniques and efficient communication patterns. The parallelization of the successful sequential system of Carmen Systems AB guarantees that the results are immediately useful and applicable to a large number of airlines(More)
In this paper we discuss research work that enables the development of mixed societies of communicating plants and artefacts. PLANTS is an EUfunded Research and Development project, which aims to investigate methods of creating “interfaces” between artefacts and plants in order to enable people to form mixed, interacting (potentially co-operating)(More)
