In this paper we outline a novel approach for enhancing content-based routing performance in publish/subscribe systems composed by an application-level network of event brokers. We present an algorithm which aim is to logically place close (in terms of TCP hops) brokers that manage subscribers with similar interests. We show how this algorithm allows the(More)
This paper is about energy efficient and robust implementation of random walks in mobile wireless networks. While random walk based algorithm are often proposed to solve many problems in wireless networks, their implementation is usually done at the application layer so that many characteristics of the wireless transmissions are not exploited. In this paper(More)
The completely decoupled interaction model offered by the publish/subscribe communication paradigm perfectly suits the interoperability needs of todays large-scale, dynamic, peer-to-peer applications. The unmanaged environments, where these applications are expected to work, pose a series of problems (potentially wide number of partipants, low-reliability(More)
Recently many scalable and efficient solutions for event dissemination in publish/subscribe (pub/sub) systems have appeared in the literature. This dissemination is usually done over an overlay network of brokers and its cost can be measured as the number of messages sent over the overlay to allow the event to reach all intended subscribers. Efficient(More)
An in-depth review of service discovery protocols (SDPs) in multihop mobile ad hoc networks analyzes SDP building blocks and determines SDP suitability based on architecture, mobility, and network size. Mobile ad hoc networks (manets) include a variety of devices, such as cell phones, PDAs, laptops, and other relatively larger devices. These devices can(More)
Mobile devices are inherently scarce in resources, necessitating the need to cooperate among them for performing tasks that cannot be done alone. This cooperation is in the form of services that are offered by other devices in the network. To get benefit from the services offered by other devices, they have to be discovered. Service Discovery Protocols(More)
The notion of temporal uncertainty, expressed as the possibility for an event to occur in an interval of simulation time, rather than at a specific instant, has been recently proposed and exploited in order to enhance the performance of parallel/distributed simulation systems. In this paper we propose the concept of "spatial uncertainty" expressed as the(More)
Low-latency data delivery is an important requirement for achieving effective monitoring through wireless sensor networks. When sensor nodes employ duty cycling, sending a message along the shortest path, however, does not necessarily result in minimum delay. In this paper, we first study the lowest latency path problem, i.e., the characteristics of a path(More)
With the advent of wearable computing and the resulting growth in mobile application market, we investigate mobile opportunistic cloud computing where mobile devices leverage nearby computational resources in order to save execution time and consumed energy. Our goal is to enable generic computation offloading to heterogeneous devices forming a(More)
