ABSTRACT
<p>Pervasive information communities organization is a framework for creating mission-oriented dynamic communities of autonomous software entities that perform tasks for users and devices. PICO provides automated continual services to improve quality of life and uses resources efficiently by enhancing existing Internet services. PICO's main components are software entities, called delegents (intelligent delegates), and hardware entities, called camileuns (connected, adaptive, mobile, intelligent, learned, efficient, ubiquitous nodes). Its novel features include creating mission-oriented dynamic communities of software agents, just-in-time communication and proactive collaboration among these communities, and adapting hardware and software changes as well as application requirements. As a pervasive computing paradigm, PICO has applications in domains such as telemedicine, military, crisis management, and many day-to-day activities.</p>
