Challenges in realizing programmable matter
The Claytronics project is working on realizing programmable matter. Programmable matter is any substance which can be programmed to effect a change in one or more of its physical characteristics. In claytronics, the substance is a collection of individual sub-millimeter units, each of which can sense, compute, communicate, and actuate. In this talk, I will describe some of the hardware and software challenges in realizing claytronics as well as some of the nearer term applications for claytronics, e.g., 3D-fax machines, programmable antenna, morphable medical devices, and 3D-physical CAD tools.

System Configuration and Fabrication Technology for Distributed MEMS
The system configuration and printing-based fabrication technology of distributed MEMS are discussed using our research trials related to those aspects. Based on the concept of autonomous distributed system (ADS), we have constructed and operated a smart conveyer using micro nozzle arrays. We also applied printing technology to fabricate a kind of distributed MEMS, i.e. a flexible display consisting of movable Fabry-Perot interferometers.

Ubiquitous/Pervasive Intelligence: Visions and Challenges
Ubiquitous/Pervasive computers, networks and information are paving a road towards a smart world (SW) in which computational intelligence is distributed throughout the physical environment to provide trustworthy and relevant services to people. This ubiquitous/pervasive intelligence (UI/PI) will change the computing landscape because it will enable new breeds of applications and systems to be developed; the realm of computing possibilities will be significantly extended. By embedding digital intelligence in everyday objects, our workplaces, our homes and even ourselves, many tasks and processes could be simplified, made more efficient, safer and more enjoyable. Ubiquitous or pervasive computing, composes these many "smart things/u-things" to create the environments that underpin the smart world. In this presentation, the potential trends towards smart world (SW) and ubiquitous/pervasive intelligence (UI/PI) from smart u-things to smart spaces and then to smart hyperspaces will be addressed, as well as, the challenges in smart u-things' research in terms of technical and real world complexity.

|Self-organization in wireless sensor and actuator networks
The advances in nano-technology and communications has made technologically possible to have low-power devices that integrate general-purpose computing with sensing and wireless communications capabilities. Wireless sensor networks which have been intensively studied these recent years can be extended actuators or actors. Actuators are simple devices programmed to take immediate, one-shot, action in response to sensory input while actors are more sophisticated entities that, in addition to actuating can provide a meaningful, long-term, interaction with the environment. This kind of networks are commonly referred to as Sensor Actor Networks (SANET). In this presentation, we will describe self-organization issues in SANET in term of energy-efficiency. The three main parts of the talk are topology control, routing protocols and self-deployment issues.
