-Thanks to the work of the other people on this page, programming applications for mobile devices is now as easy as, say, writing a blog. However, research so far has focused on one-to-one communication and how the properties of MANETs disrupt it.

-In the Real World(tm) we do group communication without giving it a second thought, changing conversation topics as people leave and rejoin the group. Likewise, we effortlessly do service composition: comparing prices for stuff we want to buy or finding interesting activities for a trip. Doing these things with current technology requires a lot of "bookkeeping code" because it can only track the connectivity of one link at a time. 
- 
-My research intends to provide abstractions that bind a number of services residing on different mobile devices into coherent entities. Programmers can then use these abstractions to communicate with groups of services as easily as with single services.

By providing adequate software abstractions for correlating multiple input devices we try to encourage multimodal gestural interaction and ease their implementations.

-The relation of my research and AmOP is the //spontaneous collaborative manipulation of digital information//. One scenario is that multiple people can interact using their laptop or mobile device with a shared virtual smart-board over a wireless network. Another scenario is the peer-to-peer data exchange where one users 'throws' (gesture 1) data and another users 'catches' (gesture 2) it. This type of interaction is both distributed in the //actions// they perform (correlate the 'throw' and 'catch' from different devices) and in the //data// that is exchanged.

In my Phd dissertation, I investigated programming abstractions that allow to specify which events to capture by distributed application components in a mobile ad hoc network. Furthermore, I am trying to come up with mechanisms that allow reacting to these events without relying on event handlers or other callback mechanisms. Finally, low level events should be processed (e.g. by combining them) such that they are on the semantic level of the application.
