An Analysis of Language-Level Support for Self-Adaptive Software
Guido Salvaneschi, Carlo Ghezzi, Matteo Pradella
Article No.: 7
DOI: 10.1145/2491465.2491466

Self-adaptive software has become increasingly important to address the new challenges of complex computing systems. To achieve adaptation, software must be designed and implemented by following suitable criteria, methods, and strategies. Past...

Conditional Safety Certification of Open Adaptive Systems
Daniel Schneider, Mario Trapp
Article No.: 8
DOI: 10.1145/2491465.2491467

In recent years it has become more and more evident that openness and adaptivity are key characteristics of next-generation distributed systems. The reason for this is not least due to the advent of computing trends like ubiquitous computing,...

Autonomic Provisioning with Self-Adaptive Neural Fuzzy Control for Percentile-Based Delay Guarantee
Palden Lama, Xiaobo Zhou
Article No.: 9
DOI: 10.1145/2491465.2491468

Autonomic server provisioning for performance assurance is a critical issue in Internet services. It is challenging to guarantee that requests flowing through a multi-tier system will experience an acceptable distribution of delays. The difficulty...

Adaptive Composition of Distributed Pervasive Applications in Heterogeneous Environments
Stephan Schuhmann, Klaus Herrmann, Kurt Rothermel, Yazan Boshmaf
Article No.: 10
DOI: 10.1145/2491465.2491469

Complex pervasive applications need to be distributed for two main reasons: due to the typical resource restrictions of mobile devices, and to use local services to interact with the immediate environment. To set up such an application, the...

Fast, Accurate Event Classification on Resource-Lean Embedded Sensors
Hao Jiang, Jason O. Hallstrom
Article No.: 11
DOI: 10.1145/2491465.2491470

Due to the limited computational and energy resources available on existing wireless sensor platforms, achieving high-precision classification of high-level events in-network is a challenge. In this article, we present in-network...
