Morphogenetic engineering weds bio self-organization to human-designed systems
René Doursat
Deeper understanding of complex biological and engineered systems should lead to the emergence of new hybrid designs that provide the best of both worlds.

Biological principles and sensor networks: self-organized operation and control
Falko Dressler
Nature provides a number of model solutions to the problem of managing and controlling networked, embedded systems, from synchronizing distributed nodes to detecting misbehaviour.

Designers and users dynamically adapt software to fit context
Matthew Chalmers
A new infrastructure allows collaboration in shaping and extending iPhone software to suit individual needs.

Understanding interactions in the smart home
Vic Callaghan, Victor Zamudio, and Jeannette S. Y. Chin
Mathematically based tools are proving helpful in coming to grips with the dynamics⎯both human and machine⎯of advanced networked systems.

Event recognition for intelligent resource management
Alexander Artikis and George Paliouras
The PRONTO research programme aims to develop a system for real-time, accurate recognition of complex events given multiple sources of information.

Self-improving personal smart spaces
Nicholas Taylor
The pervasive-computing vision of services that are transparently available everywhere all the time requires context-aware and personalizable systems for every user.

Energy harvesting for pervasive computing
P. D. Mitcheson and E. M. Yeatman
