SASO 2013: Selected, Revised, and Extended Best Papers
Jeremy Pitt, Tom Holvoet
Article No.: 7
DOI: 10.1145/2746344

IEEE SASO (Self-Adapting and Self-Organizing Systems) is the premier international conference for computer systems and networks that autonomously change some aspect of themselves: code, form, function, shape, structure, components, and so on. Over...

Static, Dynamic, and Adaptive Heterogeneity in Distributed Smart Camera Networks
Peter R. Lewis, Lukas Esterle, Arjun Chandra, Bernhard Rinner, Jim Torresen, Xin Yao
Article No.: 8
DOI: 10.1145/2764460

We study heterogeneity among nodes in self-organizing smart camera networks, which use strategies based on social and economic knowledge to target communication activity efficiently. We compare homogeneous configurations, when cameras use the same...

A Generic Holonic Control Architecture for Heterogeneous Multiscale and Multiobjective Smart Microgrids
Sylvain Frey, Ada Diaconescu, David Menga, Isabelle Demeure
Article No.: 9
DOI: 10.1145/2700326

Designing the control infrastructure of future “smart” power grids is a challenging task. Future grids will integrate a wide variety of heterogeneous producers and consumers that are unpredictable and operate at various scales....

Superdiffusive Dispersion and Mixing of Swarms
Jacob Beal
Article No.: 10
DOI: 10.1145/2700322

A common swarm task is to disperse evenly through an environment from an initial tightly packed formation. Due to communication and sensing limitations, it is often necessary to execute this task with little or no communication between swarm...

Cooperative Resource Allocation in Open Systems of Systems
Gerrit Anders, Alexander Schiendorfer, Florian Siefert, Jan-Philipp Steghöfer, Wolfgang Reif
Article No.: 11
DOI: 10.1145/2700323

Resource allocation is a common problem in many technical systems. In multi-agent systems, the decentralized or regionalized solution of this problem usually requires the agents to cooperate due to their limited resources and knowledge. At the...

A Distributed Algorithm for Large-Scale Graph Partitioning
Fatemeh Rahimian, Amir H. Payberah, Sarunas Girdzijauskas, Mark Jelasity, Seif Haridi
Article No.: 12
DOI: 10.1145/2714568

Balanced graph partitioning is an NP-complete problem with a wide range of applications. These applications include many large-scale distributed problems, including the optimal storage of large sets of graph-structured data over several hosts....

Crowdsourcing through Cognitive Opportunistic Networks
Matteo Mordacchini, Andrea Passarella, Marco Conti, Stuart M. Allen, Martin J. Chorley, Gualtiero B. Colombo, Vlad Tanasescu, Roger M. Whitaker
Article No.: 13
DOI: 10.1145/2733379

Until recently crowdsourcing has been primarily conceived as an online activity to harness resources for problem solving. However, the emergence of Opportunistic Networking (ON) has opened up crowdsourcing to the spatial domain. In this article,...
