Full Description
Research in context-aware computing has produced a number of middleware systems for context management. However, development of ubiquitous context-aware applications is still a challenge because most current middleware systems are still focused on isolated and static context-aware environments. Context-aware environments are inherently dynamic as a result of occasional additions or upgrade of sensors, applications or context inference mechanisms.Context Management for Distributed and Dynamic Context-Aware Computing proposes a novel architecture for context management based on the concept of context domains, allowing applications to keep context interests across distributed context management systems. The authors describe a distributed middleware that implements the aforementioned concepts, without compromising scalability and efficiency of context access.
