The essential approach of CASCOM is the innovative combination of intelligent agent technology, semantic Web services, peer-to-peer, and mobile computing for intelligent peer-to-peer mobile service environments. Conventional peer-to-peer computing environments are extended with components for mobile and wireless communication. The services of CASCOM environments are provided by peer software agents which exploit the CASCOM coordination infrastructure to efficiently operate in highly dynamic environments. The generic CASCOM intelligent peer-to-peer infrastructure includes efficient communication means, support for context-aware adaptation techniques, as well as dynamic and secure service discovery and composition planning. The project will deliver a full proof-of-concept implementation of the generic CASCOM support infrastructure for mobile business application service coordination for mobile users and workers, and a trialed demonstrator for selected pervasive health care application services.
