Using wireless sensor networks as part of pervasive computing scenarios is a difficult problem. It involves providing functionality and node behavior required by pervasive computing applications given the very limited capabilities and the constraints of wireless sensor nodes. The goal of this work is to investigate the problem of integrating wireless sensor nodes and wireless sensor networks in pervasive computing scenarios and to develop solutions that facilitate such an integration. Based on an analysis of both research areas, of their specific properties and requirements as well as the similarities and differences of the two fields, we identify and discuss a set of five fundamental problem areas that complicate the integration of sensor networks and pervasive computing: communication, network setup and configuration, user experience, security and flexibility and adaptability. In the main part of this work, we then introduce a total of six solution approaches that deal with different aspects of the identified problem areas.

Appointment to a secondary headship is seen by many in the teaching profession as the pinnacle of a teaching career. Is is certainly the top management post in schools. But how is the transition from teacher to headteacher made, what are the obstacles on the way and what lies in store for the appointed head? In Becoming a Secondary Headteacher, Julia Evetts examines the pocesses involved in developing a new career in teaching and becoming a secondary headteacher. Using the promotion experience of individual headteachers, she looks at the factors which can determine career progression and those which might hold it back. The issue of gender and headship is a recurrent theme in the book and Dr Evetts investigates the differing careers and headship experiences of men and women. The book goes on to examine the headteachers role in the current climate of self-management and self-determination. it looks at the current atmosphere of internal politics and the need to generate income, noth of which have increased the strain on school heads. Finally, Julia Evetts discusses the choices which lie beyond headship for a teacher who wishes to develop further.Becoming a Secondary Headteacher is essential reading for all teachers who wish to progress in school management, for headteachers, for governors and LEA advisers. Julia Evetts is Senior Lecturer in the School of Social Studies at the University of Nottingham.
