Space-aware Coordination in ReSpecT

Stefano Mariani, Andrea Omicini
Spatial issues are essential in new classes of complex software systems, such as pervasive, multi-agent, and self-organising ones. Understanding the basic mechanisms of spatial coordination is a fundamental issue for coordination models and languages in order to deal with such systems, governing situated interaction in the spatio-temporal fabric. Along this line, in this paper we make space-aware coordination media out of ReSpecT tuple centres, by introducing the few basic mechanisms and constructs that enable the ReSpecT language to face most of the main challenges of spatial coordination in complex software systems.
Keywords: tuple-based coordination, spatial coordination, space-aware coordination media, situated systems
