ITrust is an Information Society Technologies (IST) working group, which started on 1st of August, 2002. The working group is being funded as a concerted action/ thematic network by the Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) unit of the IST program. The aim of iTrust is to provide a forum for cross-disciplinary investigation of the application of trust as a means of establishing security and con?dence in the global computing infrastructure, recognizing trust as a crucial enabler for meaningful and mutually bene?cial interactions. The proposed forum is intended to bring together researchers with a keen interest in complementary aspects of trust, from technology-oriented disciplines and the ?elds of law, social sciences, and philosophy. Hence providing the c- sortium participants (and the research communities associated with them) with the common background necessary for advancing toward an in-depth underst- ding of the fundamental issues and challenges in the area of trust management in open systems. Broadly the initiative aims to: – facilitate the cross-disciplinary investigation of fundamental issues underp- ning computational trust models by bringing together expertise from te- nology oriented sciences, law, philosophy, and social sciences – facilitate the emergence of widely acceptable trust management processes for dynamic open systems and applications – facilitate the development of new paradigms in the area of dynamic open systems which e?ectively utilize computational trust models – help the incorporation of trust management elements in existing standards
Managing interactions in smart environments : 1st International Workshop on Managing Interactions in Smart Environments (MANSE'99), Dublin, December 1999 by Paddy Nixon( Book )

9 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research into Smart Buildings and Spaces has increased rapidly over the last few years. This volume aims to address the convergence of research in Distributed Systems, Robotics and Human Centred computing within the domain of smart buildings and present a unique opportunity to investigate work that crosses the boundaries of these disciplines. It provides an overview of progress in a fast-moving area, by bringing together researchers, implementors and practitioners and the papers draw together the developments and concerns of those working on the different aspects of smart environments, as well as providing views on the future prospects for work in this area

An Investigation into Component Reconfigurability Management for Dependable Ad-Hoc Networking( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report results from a contract tasking University of Strathclyde to investigate requirements for robust reliable application communications in ad-hoc distributed mobile computer networks. Specifically, the contractor will investigate code mobility in ad-hoc collaborations and apply his insights into dynamic fault tolerant binding to the management of reliability. To implement and evaluate these issues, a heterogeneous, mobile, reconfigurable computer network will be assembled. This network will provide the required computational and physical mobility and will consist of hand-held computers and more powerful development laptop computers supported by a wireless Ethernet system (based on Lucent's WaveLan technology). Details of the deliverable are described below

The disappearing computer : interaction design, system infrastructures and applications for smart environments by N. A Streitz( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines how the computer, as we currently know it, will be replaced by a new generation of technologies, moving computing off the desktop and ultimately integrating it with real world objects and everyday environments. Computing thus becomes an inseparable part of our everyday activities while simultaneously disappearing into the background. It becomes a ubiquitous utility taking on a role similar to electricity: an enabling but invisible and pervasive medium revealing its functionality on request in an unobtrusive way and supporting people's everyday activities. This book provides a unique combination of concepts, methods and prototypes of ubiquitous and pervasive computing reflecting the current interest in smart environments and ambient intelligence. As members of the Steering Group of the EU-funded Disappearing Computer research initiative, the editors of this book successfully assembled a collection of 13 elaborate chapters and three forewords that address the issues and challenges in this area. All authors are prominent researchers who set out investigating, developing and deploying future, people-centered smart environments
