Facets of adaptivity

Research output: Chapter in Book / Report / Conference proceedingConference contributionAcademicpeer-review


Adaptivity is one of the key requirements of today's information systems. It is used in various areas which may range from control and operating systems to networks, from robotics to intelligent systems, from multimedia to information retrieval and Web Services. Essentially, it is related to changes performed in the systems at run-time. These changes may regard various aspects: architectural, structural, behavioral or content. Considering the diversity of its application areas and of ways of achievement, this paper aims to discuss the facets of adaptivity by raising the following questions: Why is it needed? Which are its objectives? Which are its main open research issues? © 2008 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
