Title:  Emerging topics in m2m systems and wireless distributed processing 

It is well recognized that context plays a significant role in all human endeavors.  All decisions are based on information which has to be interpreted in context. By making the information systems context‐aware we  can have systems that significantly  improve the human  capabilities to handle situations. Further, most  of the time, we react to  events that take  place. We  organize  activities,  and  gather information and resources, in response and handle the event in the context in which it takes place. The challenge comes up when we design systems that support our abilities to handle events, anticipated as well  as  unanticipated. In this tutorial  be  discuss the  current state  of the  art for  Context‐aware Systems, Event‐driven  Systems and present some  ideas towards the design and  implementation of Context‐aware, Event‐driven Systems. Some examples of the systems being developed and deployed at the University of Maryland will also be presented.
