Ultra-Large-Scale Systems are considered to be the new system generation. For these systems current development approaches are not well suited, since they do not scale well for large systems. One view onto such systems is to see them as IT Ecosystems comparable to complex ecosystems from nature and biology. We will present an example for such a system, the(More)
The development of infrastructures enabling dynamic and automated composition of technical systems is a big challenge. This paper addresses a new idea of allowing systems to reconfigure themselves. We propose DoAmI a Domain-specific Ambient Intelligence middleware platform for service reconfiguration and dynamic integration. The concept is based on(More)
