Collaboration towards a goal involves groups of entities collectively possessing characteristics required to accomplish the goal. Facilitating collaborations in pervasive environments requires the automated formation of such groups. The group formation process is especially challenging in decentralised environments where there is no single central entity that can coordinate the formation process. It is also important that the group formation mechanisms are generic in nature so that they can be utilised in heterogeneous target environments regardless of their domain and requirements. This paper proposes a generic approach for automating group formation in decentralised environments. © 2011 IEEE.
