In this paper we seek to improve our understanding of human mobility in terms of social structures, and to use these structures in the design of forwarding algorithms for Pocket Switched Networks (PSNs). Taking human mobility traces from the real world, we discover that human interaction is heterogeneous both in terms of hubs (popular individuals) and(More)
Community is an important attribute of Pocket Switched Networks (PSN), because mobile devices are carried by people who tend to belong to communities. We analysed community structure from mobility traces and used for forwarding algorithms [12], which shows significant impact of community. Here, we propose and evaluate three novel distributed community(More)
The emergence of Delay Tolerant Networks (DTNs) has culminated in a new generation of wireless networking. We focus on a type of human-to-human communication in DTNs, where human behaviour exhibits the characteristics of networks by forming a community. We show the characteristics of such networks from extensive study of real-world human connectivity(More)
The recent evolution of ubiquitous computing has brought with it a dramatic increase of event monitoring capabilities by wireless devices and sensors. Such systems require new, more sophisticated, event correlation over time and space. This new paradigm implies composition of events in heterogeneous network environments, where network and resource(More)
Mining large graphs has now become an important aspect of multiple diverse applications and a number of computer systems have been proposed to provide runtime support. Recent interest in this area has led to the construction of single machine graph computation systems that use solid state drives (SSDs) to store the graph. This approach reduces the cost and(More)
Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) provide a new paradigm for sensing and disseminating information from various environments, with the potential to serve many and diverse applications. Current WSNs typically communicate directly with a centralized controller or satellite. On the other hand, a smart WSN consists of a number of sensors spread across a(More)
So what is all this DTN research about anyway? Sceptics ask: "Why are there no DTN applications?", or "Why is DTN performance so miserable?" This article attempts to address some of these complaints. We present suggestions of expectations for applications, and metrics for performance, which suggest a more tolerant view of research in the area.
Event broker grids, that deploy the publish/subscribe communication paradigm, extend the capabilities of seamless messaging in heterogeneous network environments. In order to support such mixed network environments, we integrate publish/subscribe semantics with multicast routing in mobile ad hoc networks. Dynamic construction of an event dissemination(More)
