Cyber Foraging: Fifteen Years Later

Rajesh Krishna Balan and Jason Flinn

 

Abstract

Revisiting Mahadev Satyanarayanan’s original vision of cyber foraging and reflecting on the last 15 years of related research, this paper discusses the major accomplishments achieved in realizing this vision, as well as remaining challenges.  It also looks to current and future applications that could provide compelling scenarios for making cyber foraging a widely deployed technology. This article is part of a special issue on pervasive computing revisited.
