As technology progresses, we are seeing increasing num- bers of small devices that have the capability to store, pro- cess and forward information in our everyday physical en- vironments. Increasingly, this is opening up the opportunity to generate, collect and communicate new knowledge and information in diverse aspects of human life. However this raises significant challenges for communication and con- tent acquisition, as new levels of flexibility, adaptation and dynamism are required. In particular, the traditional notion of always-on end-to-end network connectivity becomes in- appropriate, and radical rethinking is necessary. The EU FET project Social Networking for Pervasive Adaptation (SOCIALNETS) seeks to overcome these challenges by un- derstanding, modelling and exploiting the key characteris- tics that enable humans to adapt and exhibit agility beyond other species. Through developing the capacity for devices to socially network, we believe that there is significant po- tential to facilitate highly effective pervasive communica- tion and content provision.
