    abstract={Nano computation and communication research examines nanosized devices like sensor nodes or robots. Over the last decade, it has attracted attention from many different perspectives, including material sciences, biomedical engineering, and algorithm design. With growing maturity and diversity, a common terminology is increasingly important. In this paper, we analyze the state of the art of nanoscale computational devices, and infer common requirements. We combine these with definitions for macroscale machines and robots to define Nanodevices, an umbrella term that includes all nanosized artificial devices. We derive definitions for Nanomachines and Nanorobots, each with a set of mandatory and optional components. Constraints concerning artificiality and purpose distinguish Nanodevices from nanoparticles and natural life forms. Additionally, we define a Nanonetwork as a network comprised of Nanodevices, and show the specific challenges for Medical Nanorobots and Nanonetworks. We integrate our definition into the current research of Nanodevice components with a set of examples for electronic and biological implementations.},

      ABSTRACT={The Internet of Things aims to integrate arbitrary things with the
      Internet. Sadly, the majority of things lacks of the ability to communicate
      which makes a direct integration with a communication network, i.e., the
      Internet, impossible. We overcome this limitation by introducing refined
      versions of Semantic Entities, with special Web Services, representing
      arbitrary real-world things states using (possibly aggregated) sensor
      values. Sensors can be considered ubiquitous, e.g., due to the omnipresence
      of smartphones.
    
      Our architecture of a Semantic Web of Things bases on sensors providing
      their measurements in RDF. We account for the common fact of resource
      constraints on sensor platforms by introducing a scalable caching mechanism
      for RDF data within a network of proxies (SSPs). Consequently, the
      individual Semantic Entities find and aggregate relevant (sensor) data via
      SPARQL. Besides scalabilty, the proxies also solve the issue of the sensor
      platforms diversity in terms of communication interfaces.}

    sensor networks or vehicular ad-hoc networks. Recently, we have
    developed and designed a general purpose data dissemination protocol
    called AutoCast in this field that we evaluated in detail by
    simulations. When we started to use AutoCast in real applications, we
    found out that the description of AutoCast is incomplete, as we provided
    the algorithms of AutoCast in details but did neither provide nor
    describe a suitable Application Programming Interface (API) and AutoCast
    was closely coupled to the application. The focus of this article is
    twofold. First, we propose an appropriate API to encapsulate data
    dissemination protocols like AutoCast and we specify the service
    interface of AutoCast in detail. This API can serve as a reference model
    for other nature and biologically inspired data dissemination approaches
    and applications. Second, we evaluate two applications based on our API
    with AutoCast in the field of wireless sensor networks and vehicular
    ad-hoc networks to illustrate the usage of the API and demonstrate the
    flexibility of this approach.",

Current traffic monitoring and management approaches with stationary infrastructure lack flexibility with respect to system deployment and have difficulties with detecting unpredictable events (e.g., accidents). One goal of AutoNomos is the development of a distributed and selforganising traffic information and management system without a centralised infrastructure. Our system relies on a GPS-based navigation system and a wireless radio interface; vehicles can gather information about the current position on the road network and form a vehicular ad-hoc network (VANET) to share information about traffic phenomena. In this article, we introduce Hovering Data Clouds (HDCs) as a tool to collect, aggregate and disseminate application-specific data. HDCs evolve in a self-organising manner at locations of relevant data in the system. Although their data is hosted on the nodes, HDCs exist independent of the individual carriers. While HDCs float between physical carriers, their corresponding HDC messages are disseminated in the network by a new effective transport protocol named AutoCast, designed according to Organic Computing paradigms. Finally, we demonstrate that HDCs detect traffic phenomena reliably and propagate them robustly within the network.",
