Abstract = {In pervasive systems, software applications are 
dynamically composed from the services provided by the 
smart devices spread in the local environment. A system 
must react to changes that occur in the environment and 
reconfigure applications in order to maintain their operation 
and assume their missions at its best. This paper advocates 
the need for a mission description language, which enables 
to describe applications in a declarative way as abstract 
service compositions. The system uses mission definitions to 
calculate a configuration that best executes them with the 
currently available resources. This optimal configuration is 
intended to maximize the utility of the system, considering 
user preferences, available resources, and mission criticality. 
Contextual adaptations are captured in the mission language 
as modes and strategies, that respectively describe evolutions 
of the assigned mission set and alternate ways to execute 
missions. These mechanisms leverage service component ap- 
proach, for the dynamic deployment of missions, and agent- 
orientation, for autonomic configuration management.},
