Abstract: Networking applications and devices form an ensemble as an intelligent environment. However, devices and applications are not homogeneous and the network is that complex that the application placement cannot be carried out manually any further. The attempt presented in this thesis realizes the automatic and demand-oriented placement of applications in such an environment. Therefore, at first a valid initial application placement is found, that is adapted stepwise with the help of a local heuristic based on a force model.
