Keywords: Mobile communication infrastructure Development of mobile collaborative applications Services reuse MANET Loosely coupled work a b s t r a c t Mobile workers doing loosely coupled activities typically perform on demand collaboration in the physical workplace. Communication services available in such work scenarios are uncertain, therefore mobile(More)
Scalability is a key design challenge that routing protocols for ad hoc networks must properly address to maintain the network performance when the number of nodes increases. We focus on this issue by reducing the amount of control information messages that a link state proactive routing algorithm introduces to the network. Our proposal is based on the(More)
Community networks have emerged under the mottos of " break the strings that are limiting you " , " don't buy the network, be the network " or " a free net for everyone is possible ". Such networks create a measurable social impact as they provide to the community the right and opportunity of communication. As any other network that mixes wired and wireless(More)
— We propose an approach for predicting group formations, to address the problem of automating the incorporation of group awareness into CSCL applications. Contextual information can enable the construction of applications that effectively assist the group members to automatically communicate in synchronous and collocated collaborative learning activities.(More)
—Mobile collaborative applications are usually deployed in work scenarios where the existence of fixed communication infrastructure is hard to predict. For that reason, these applications use Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANETs) to support communication between mobile users. The complexity involved in such communication infrastructures make that developers avoid(More)
