A new vista is open for research in the area of data management in pervasive environments where mobile devices gather and exchange information from other devices based on their current context. Each device is both a data source and a data consumer pursuing its individual and collective tasks. Our research group is investigating various ideas aimed at realizing pervasive computing systems based on the cooperation of autonomous, dynamic and adaptive components located in vicinity of one another. These systems will enable devices to discover information, compose it, and analyze it for consistency, all in a secure and trusted manner.
