Tutorial A DAIS - FMOODS 2003 event - 18 November 2003
Context Aware Systems for Pervasive Computation
emergence of mobile and embedded computing devices and the progress in wireless
communication technologies instigated research on pervasive systems, i.e.
systems which (i) provide seamless
computing infrastructure for user computing applications allowing user mobility
and user independence of computing devices and computer networks, and (ii) can
support users in a range of tasks. Such systems are built as context-aware
systems – they can capture some information about the context of particular
applications and adapt the application and/or the whole computing system when
the context changes.
tutorial will present examples of pervasive systems and will overview major
research issues in the area of pervasive computing:
overview will present the state of the art in the design of context aware
systems and will highlight the remaining research challenges.
