Outdoor distributed computing

I attened a seminar at EPFL about Outdoor distributed computing. Here are few notes.

Constraints on outdoor computing : outdoor adversity !
– nods are volatile and mobile (dynamic configuration)
– networking is ad-hoc : unpredictable delays
– location may dictate the role of computation : naming must include location
– conventional distributed computing does not work.
– configuration changes during execution !
