Mobile ad-hoc networks, MANETs, are self-organized and very dynamic systems where processes have no global knowledge of the system. In this paper, we propose a model that characterizes the dynamics of MANETs in the sense that it considers that paths between nodes are dynamically built and the system can have infinitely many processes but the network may(More)
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a very dynamic and heterogeneous environment that generates plethora of sensor data, accessible to develop new smart pervasive applications. However, the substantial amount of effort required to collect and disseminate context data with sufficient quality prevents the context consumers to take advantage of the IoT to its full(More)
Distributed Event-Based System (DEBS) provides a versatile solution for asynchronously exchanging data in a distributed system, loosely-coupled in space and time. The software architecture of a DEBS is composed of an over-lay network of brokers that are responsible for routing data from producers to consumers. An important issue is the cost (in terms of(More)
AIM Cholangitis is a well-known complication that contributes to morbidity, mortality, as well as health-care utilisation in children with biliary atresia who have undergone the Kasai portoenterostomy. The aim of the study was to determine the common causative organisms for cholangitis and characterise its burden, health-care resource and service(More)
With Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANETs), communication between mobile users is possible without any infrastructure. MANETs are already a necessary part of wireless systems. Due to arbitrary node arrivals, departures, crashes and movements, network partitioning may arise resulting in a degradation of the service, but not necessarily in its interruption. In this(More)
