    abstract = { In the past decade, pervasive environments have emerged from promising research concepts to available products present in our everyday lives. By connecting multiple smart objects, device ensembles can be formed to assist users in performing tasks. Furthermore, smart objects can be used to control applications, that, in turn, can be used to control other smart objects. While dynamically connecting these components allows for solutions tailored to the needs and respective tasks of a user, it obfuscates the handling and ultimately may decrease usability. Self-descriptions have been proposed to overcome this issue for ensembles of smart objects. For a more extensive approach, descriptions of applications in pervasive environments need to be addressed as well. Based on previous research in the context of self-explainability of smart objects, we propose a description language as well as a framework to support self-explaining ambient applications (applications that are used within smart environments). The framework can be used to dynamically connect smart objects as well as ambient applications and to realize self-explainability for these interconnected device and application ensembles. },

    abstract={Akyildiz et al. envisioned the use of nanonetworks as a new paradigm for computation on a very small scale. Since then, many scientists researched dependent aspects like nanoscale communication. However, most research omitted specifying the computational complexity required for their respective scenarios. To close this gap, we analyzed numerous medical scenarios and extracted the formal problems to be solved. We then compared the resulting formal problems using computational complexity theory and displayed them sorted into the classes AC 0, NC 1 and L. Lastly, we describe the benefits of our results for simulation purposes and to better assess the feasibility of nanonetwork scenarios.}
