Abstract 

The Internet of Things and edge computing are fostering a future of ecosystems

hosting complex decentralized computations, deeply integrated with our very dynamic

environments. Digitalized buildings, communities of people, and cities will be the

next-generation “hardware and platform”, counting myriads of interconnected devices, on top of

which intrinsically-distributed computational processes will run and self-organize. They will

spontaneously spawn, diffuse to pertinent logical/physical regions, cooperate and compete,

opportunistically summon required resources, collect and analyze data, compute results, trigger

distributed actions, and eventually decade.

How would a programming model for such ecosystems look like? Based on research findings on

self-adaptive/self-organizing systems, this paper proposes design abstractions based on

“dynamic decentralization domains”: regions of space opportunistically formed to support

situated recognition and action. We embody the approach into a Scala API to enact distributed

execution on a network of devices and show its applicability in a case study of environmental

monitoring.
