Engaging the Masses in Pervasive Computing: A Missed Opportunity?
Found in: IEEE Internet Computing
By Christine Julien,Jamie Payton
Issue Date:September 2012
pp. 74-77
Pervasive computing research is often couched in socially relevant applications, yet we've largely failed to leverage its potential to excite and engage the public. By focusing research efforts on engaging everyday users as an essential part of research, d...
Coordination Middleware Supporting Rapid Deployment of Ad Hoc Mobile Systems
Found in: Distributed Computing Systems Workshops, International Conference on
By Radu Handorean, Jamie Payton, Christine Julien, Gruia-Catalin Roman
Issue Date:May 2003
pp. 362
This paper addresses the design and implementation of thin coordination veneers for use in the development of applications over ad hoc wireless networks. A coordination veneer is defined as an adaptation layer that customizes a general-purpose coordination...
A spatiotemporal model for ephemeral data in pervasive computing networks
Found in: Pervasive Computing and Communications Workshops, IEEE International Conference on
By Jonas Michel,Christine Julien,Jamie Payton,Gruia-Catalin Roman
Issue Date:March 2012
pp. 179-184
Pervasive computing evokes a vision of digitally-accessible environments with which applications and users interact in localized ways. In this vision, information is ephemeral: it is created, moved, stored, and deleted on-demand at rapid rates. Without a f...
myGander: A mobile interface and distributed search engine for pervasive computing
Found in: Pervasive Computing and Communications Workshops, IEEE International Conference on
By Jonas Michel,Christine Julien,Jamie Payton,Gruia-Catalin Roman
Issue Date:March 2012
pp. 495-497
Motivated by the growing amount of digitally-accessible information in our physical surroundings and the ephemeral nature of that information, there is a profound need to efficiently search information with spatiotemporal underpinnings without a priori ind...
Engaging college students in service learning to grow the K-12 computing pipeline and prepare the 21st century workforce (abstract only)
Found in: Proceedings of the 45th ACM technical symposium on Computer science education (SIGCSE '14)
By Cheryl Seals, Jamie Payton, Jason Black, Tiffany Barnes
Issue Date:March 2014
pp. 733-733
The demand for computing professionals in the U.S. workforce is expected to increase over the next several years, while the number of students intending to major in computing has declined. In this BOF session, we focus on the use of service learning to add...
GameChanger: a middleware for social exergames
Found in: Proceeding of the 1st international workshop on Games and software engineering (GAS '11)
By Andrea Nickel, Evie Powell, Jamie Payton, Katelyn Doran, Tiffany Barnes
Issue Date:May 2011
pp. 36-39
While the health benefits of exercise are wide-ranging and wellknown, the population of the United States is suffering from a lack of physical activity. We believe that combining elements of social interaction with exercise in video games will lead to incr...
Integrating participatory sensing in application development practices
Found in: Proceedings of the FSE/SDP workshop on Future of software engineering research (FoSER '10)
By Christine Julien, Jamie Payton
Issue Date:November 2010
pp. 277-282
With the widespread capabilities of commodity mobile devices, applications will increasingly incorporate participatory sensing functionality. Participatory sensing directly involves end-users in collecting (and ultimately sharing) information about the env...
Automatic consistency assessment for query results in dynamic environments
Found in: Proceedings of the the 6th joint meeting of the European software engineering conference and the ACM SIGSOFT symposium on The foundations of software engineering (ESEC-FSE '07)
By Christine Julien, Gruia-Catalin Roman, Jamie Payton
Issue Date:September 2007
pp. 245-254
Queries are convenient abstractions for the discovery of information and services, as they offer content-based information access. In distributed settings, query semantics are well-defined, e.g., they often satisfy ACID transactional properties. In a dynam...
How system architectures impede interoperability
Found in: Proceedings of the second international workshop on Software and performance (WOSP '00)
By Jamie Payton, Leigh A. Davis, Rose Gamble
Issue Date:September 2000
pp. 145-146
Wireless multihop networks overlaid with cellular structure havethe potential to support high data rate Internet traffic. In thispaper, we consider techniques by which the system capacity of suchnetworks can be increased. First, methods for increasing link...
