|Seminarie Informatica: 6 seminars on adaptable systems (2de Licentiaat informatica)|| http://www.pats.ua.ac.be/index.php?id=courses
|Truly effective use of mobile computing technologies asks for software engineering techniques to design, develop and maintain adaptive services,that is, services that are prepared to continue the distribution of a fixed, agreed-upon quality of service despite of the changes in the location of the client software, changes in the characteristics of the environment, or internal changes. Techniques to assess and to guarantee such property are important prerequisites for an effective spread of cost-effective mobile computing services. This cycle of seminars aims to provide the audience with an introduction to this new research topic as well as a view to some current research activities focusing on adaptive systems."|

The First IEEE WoWMoM Workshop on Adaptive and DependAble Mission- and business-critical mobile Systems (ADAMUS 2007, *Helsinki**, Finland**, 18 June 2007).
A truly extended use of mobile computing technologies asks for effective software engineering techniques to design, develop and maintain mission- and business-critical applications over mobile environments. In recent years we witnessed an increasing demand for mission- and business-critical applications over mobile environments.
To overcome the intrinsic limitations of mobile devices and environments, a variety of research studies have produced a plethora of methods and proof-of-concept prototypes for supporting non-critical applications.
However, it is still unclear whether current technologies, methods, and solutions can satisfy the challenging adaptability and dependability requirements of the emerging mobile mission- and business- critical systems and applications, such as mobile commerce, wireless control of robots, healthcare computing, and video-surveillance.
To be effective, these applications must endorse provisions that allow them to continue the optimal distribution of their service despite the occurrence of potentially significant and sudden changes or faults in their infrastructure and the surrounding environment. he main goal of this workshop is that of fostering exchange of ideas and lively discussions to reduce the gap between research achievements and industrial applications in the field of adaptive and dependable mission- and business- critical mobile systems and applications. High quality papers able to identify open issues, to discuss the limits and/or advantages of existing solutions, or to propose original and innovative techniques for adaptive and dependable mission- and business-critical applications over mobile environments are solicited for submission.
