Distributed memory management is substantially complicated in mobile ad hoc networks due to the fact that nodes in the network only have intermittent connectivity and often lack any kind of centralized coordination facility. Leasing provides a robust mechanism to manage reclamation of remote objects in mobile ad hoc networks. However, leasing techniques limits the lifetime of remote objects based on timeouts. In mobile networks, we also observe that devices need to continuously adapt to changes in their context. In this position paper, we argue that changes in context not only require adaptation in the behaviour of the application but also permeate to distributed memory management, leading to the concept of context-aware leasing.
