The emergence of new lightweight web technologies and the development of mobile devices leads to a situation, where the users can consume the same web services regardless of the place, time and device. Mobile devices are equipped with networking capabilities and sensors that provide versatile context and user-community information. This information enhances(More)
Pervasive Social Computing is a novel collective paradigm, derived from pervasive computing, social media, social networking, social signal processing, etc. This paper reviews Pervasive Social Computing as an integrated computing environment, which promises to augment five facets of human intelligence in physical environment awareness, behavior awareness,(More)
Super-peer overlay provides an efficient way to run applications by exploring the heterogeneity of nodes in a Peer-to-Peer overlay network. Identifying nodes with high capacity as super-peers plays an important role in improving the performance of P2P applications, such as live streaming. In this paper, we present a super-peer selection algorithm (SPS) to(More)
Incorporating service composition and pervasive computing into managing users' complex everyday activities calls for the Pervasive Service Composition paradigm for everyday life. In this paper, we propose the concept of Context-Aware Pervasive Service Composition (CAPSC), which aims at enabling a pervasive system to provide user service compositions that(More)
The Internet of Things presents the user with a novel means of communicating with the Web world through ubiquitous object-enabled networks. Cloud Computing enables a convenient, on demand and scalable network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources. This paper mainly focuses on a common approach to integrate the Internet of Things (IoT)(More)
The contemporary information age is equipped with rich and affordable telecommunication services. In the future, people have even more flexibility when true wireless Internet and real-time multimedia are provided seamlessly over heterogeneous wireless networks. Optimally combining the capacity and services of the current and emerging networks requires a(More)
—We evaluate the battery life of mobile devices that act as full-fledged peer nodes in a Kademlia DHT based P2P overlay network. The motivation is to find out how long a mobile peer is able to function in a UMTS or WLAN access network, and how the different parameter settings affect this battery life; this is interesting as mobile access to P2P networks is(More)
In this paper, we present a system for the distributed management of user communities. The system utilizes multiple DHT overlay networks where nodes communicate in a peer-to-peer manner. Our system works on top of a P2PSIP protocol implementation that carries out the DHT signaling. The key idea behind our system is to use one overlay network per community;(More)
One challenging problem in Machine-to-Machine (M2M) applications is to efficiently discover the resources provided by a huge number of heterogeneous devices. This paper proposes distributed resource discovery architecture (DRD) for M2M applications. The DRD supports heterogeneous devices in resource description registration and discovery of resource value.(More)
