As mobile personal devices have become more powerful, being used across different environments, there is a need to further enable these devices to seamlessly share resources such as processing power, storage capacity and functionality in the form of services available across a global network environment such as the computational grid. This paper aims to present a generic framework for self-organized and adaptive scheduling in a grid environment built on personal mobile devices i.e. a Personal Mobile Grid (PM-Grid). The proposed scheduling framework (HoPe), which is inspired by honeybee food collection techniques, shows a considerable enhancement in service turnaround time and throughput over the traditional opportunistic scheduling heuristic. Consequently, we claim that the proposed scheduling framework can benefit applications in grid environments.
