Introduction to the Collaborative Distributed Systems & Networks Lab
As ubiquitous computing paradigm is realized and the Internet of Things (IoT) environments are deployed, the importance of providing composed services by collaborating multiple smart objects is increasing. The Collaborative Distributed Systems & Networks (CDS&N) lab focuses on solving problems using context-awareness when various services and smart objects collaborate to run a service. CDS&N lab develops a spontaneous service provision framework in order to provide an appropriate service to users and tests the platform in IoT testbeds in N1 and E3-1.

Smart Interaction with Things that Think
Smart appliances are equipped with cutting-edge technologies but not well utilized due to the difficulty of adopting new functionalities. We study on interactive smart appliances in order to provide personalized interactions as a service and improve user experience. We also study on the semantic communication which finds the way to communicate between unknown entities and run new services. (presented at HCII 2013 and ISUVR 2012)

Spontaneous Service Provision Framework
The challenging issue on integrating cyber-physical services is to solve an adaption loss problem when multiple services are connected. We study on the adapter chaining framework to minimize the adaptation loss between smart objects. (presented at IEEE PerCom 2008 and SCC 2011)

Service-aware Networking Architecture
Various services are deployed on mobile devices, and the demand of each service on the network is diversified and differentiated. By exploiting context-awareness, we develop a service-aware networking architecture in order to convert service requirements into network parameters and apply them to the current network in a cross-layer manner (routing, MAC, and PHY layers).
