Pervasive applications are characterized by variations in their context of execution. Their correct behavior requires continuous adaptations, accordingly to changes observed in their environment. Some of the existing approaches tackle this problem by adding stabilization mechanisms on the decision making layer. In most cases it remains costly for applications to trigger decision making procedures, specially when application changes frequency is potentially high. We believe that, to provide more
