object technology for ambient intelligence and pervasive systems
The goals of this workshop are to identify and discuss the impact of Ambient Intelligence on object-oriented technologies and vice versa. Join us to outline fruitful paths for future research on the connection between Ambient Intelligence and object-oriented programming languages and systems.
The presentations are all scheduled in the morning such that the afternoon can be used to work on emerging topics.
Session 1: Context-Aware Programming Abstractions (9:00h - 10:30h)
Session 2: Distributed Programming Abstractions (11:00h - 12:30h)
Presentations shall be concise and brief (about 7-10 minutes) and focus on a clear position statement as described in the paper. After each presentation there will be a 10 minute discussion.
Afternoon Sessions (14:00h - 17:30h)
Breakout groups and/or discussions on emerging topics.
Hardware is becoming so small such that it can be embedded into everyday physical objects, such as books, clothes, walls, etc… Due to this level of integration the software becomes aware of its physical surroundings due to interactions with other nearby devices.
setting, which is
also known as "Ambient Intelligence", "Pervasive Computing"
puts new challenges on the software that
runs on this hardware. However,
requires a new level of dynamicity and
context-sensitivity to adapt to its ever-changing physical surrounding.
ranges from context-sensitive adaptation of UI and functionality to
behaviour of spontaneously cooperating applications.
At the same time the demands on security, stability and usability will increase strongly, while resources of the underlying hardware platform are sometimes very restricted.
This workshop explores the relationship between object technology and the evolving field of Ambient Intelligence. Important goals are to identify the requirements of Ambient Intelligence imposed on object-oriented software, to detect limitations of current approaches and to explore the space of possible future developments. In particular, we aim to outline the most significant open issues and the most promising research directions.
