During the last decade we have witnessed many developments in networking. Among others, wireless network technologies have become an important and constantly growing part of the Internet infrastructure, and increasingly smaller and more powerful computing devices with flexible connectivity have enabled many new services and applications. The EUNICE 2007 theme, ‘Dependable and Adaptable Networks and Services,’ has been inspired by these developments, and aims at addressing the follow-up challenges. One of the main challenges in the next decade will be to make the Internet and the services that are provided on top of it more dependable and adaptable. Research on this theme is needed for fixed, wireless and ad-hoc networking, ubiquitous communication and computing, sensor networks, and context-awareness. While individual mobile applications with context-aware and personalized features emerged, at the same time many issues in network and service architectures arose concerning integration, interoperability, management, provisioning, reliability and security. On the one hand research has to make available a sound understanding of these applications and their supporting service and network architectures. On the other hand, research should produce service and network infrastructure solutions to be able to provide the necessary quality of service for the envisioned applications. This book, containing the papers accepted for presentation at EUNICE 2007, presents some of the research related to the challenge of dependable and adaptable networks and services.
