Description & Coverage
Description:

After the mainframe and personal computer eras, the third major era in computer science, ubiquitous computing, describes the state of technology in which networked computers would surround every user.

The Handbook of Research on Ubiquitous Computing Technology for Real Time Enterprises combines the fundamental methods, algorithms, and concepts of pervasive computing with current innovations and solutions to emerging challenges. With more than 25 authoritative contributions by over 50 of the world's leading experts this groundbreaking resource systemically covers such salient topics as network and application scalability, wireless network connectivity, adaptability and "context-aware" computing, information technology security and liability, and human computer interaction.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Adapting to the user
  • Ambient Learning
  • Context models and awareness
  • Grid computing for business applications
  • Intelligent user interfaces
  • Location context
  • Mobile speech recognition
  • Multimodal software engineering
  • Opportunistic Networks
  • Peer2peer networks
  • Security for ubiquitous computing
  • Socionics and bionics
  • Trust and accountability
  • Ubiquitous computing in manufacturing
  • Ubiquitous services and business processes
  • Wireless and mobile communication
Reviews & Statements

This publication has been indexed in the DBLP Computer Science Bibliography.

– 

The great strength of this book is its truly broad coverage of the subject. Current research topics such as context-aware computing, wireless connectivity, and the Internet of things are complemented by chapters covering a whole spectrum of challenges ranging from scalability to multimodal human computing interaction.

– Tony Hey, Corporate VP, Microsoft Corporation, USA

I am impressed by the fresh look that Ubiquitous Computing for Real-Time Enterprises offers on the crucial role of IT-Security Aspects for the future omnipresent networked computers. Part IV of the book, called liability", discusses this role in the larger context of accounting and charging issues, of human-centered models for trust and accountability, and of the conflicts between privacy and traceability."

– Professor Pradeep K. Khosla, Dean of Engineering and Co-Founder of CyLab, Carnegie Mellon University, USA

I was highly impressed by the systematic approach to and broad coverage of Ubiquitous Computing topics; with its focus on the Realtime Enterprise", the book choose exactly the right application domain, the one that is about to spark the dawning new era of computing; it proves that UbiComp is about to change the business world, and will ultimately have a dramatic impact on our entire life."

– Nabil Adam, Professor and Director, CIMIC (Center for Information Management, Integration and Connectivity), Rutgers University, USA

The book reflects and represents the technology transfer bridge between academia and practice: not only does it describe all scientific aspects of Ubiquitous Computing very thoroughly, it also shows the status of their applicability and the actual use of this revolutionary technology in top-of-the-line high-tech applications.

– Professor Dr. Lutz Heuser, Chief Development Architect, VP SAP Research, SAP AG Walldorf

From business processes down to smart items and wireless communications, from scalability aspects to human factors, this book covers ubiquitous computing for the real-time enterprise systematically and exhaustively.

– Maria E Orlowska, Professor of Information Systems and Head of the Data and Knowledge Engineering Research Division

This encyclopedic treatment details what will come after the mainframe and personal computer eras, namely the state of technology in which networks computers surround every user.

Editor/Author Biographies
Max Mühlhäuser is head of the Telecooperation Division at Technische Universität Darmstadt, Computer Science Dept. He has about 25 years of experience in research and teaching in areas related to Ubiquitous Computing (UC) at the Universities of Kaiserslautern, Karlsruhe, Linz, Darmstadt, Montréal, Sophia Antipolis, and San Diego (UCSD). In 1993, he founded the TeCO institute (www.teco.edu) in Karlsruhe, Germany that became one of the pace-makers for UC research in Europe. SAP Research is one of his major industrial partners. Max regularly publishes in UC conferences and journals and is an author of chapters about Ubiquitous Computing in computer science textbooks, readers, etc., with a total of more than 200 publications. He is a reviewer for UC conferences, member of editorial boards in journals, and guest editor in journals like Pervasive Computing, ACM Multimedia, Pervasive and Mobile Computing, etc.
Iryna Gurevych is head of the Ubiquitous Knowledge Processing Group at the Technische Universität Darmstadt. She has a PhD in Natural Language Processing (NLP) and worked in the Mobile Assistance Systems and Natural Language Processing Groups in basic and applied research at European Media Lab in Heidelberg, Germany. Her expertise is in unstructured information management, knowledge-based methods, and human-computer interaction. Iryna is Principal Investigator in several research projects funded by the German Research Foundation in the areas of semantic computing, ontology applications and language based human-computer interaction. She publishes and is a reviewer for international conferences about NLP, dialogue systems and computational semantics.
