Abstract :  The position we defend in this paper is that asynchronous communication patterns are to be considered to be the main communication paradigm in pervasive applications and that the actor model, which relies on such a form of communication, needs extenstion to be practical useful.

Keywords:  ambient pervasive ubiquitous computing asynchronous distributed systems actor systems
