Towards ad hoc contextual services for pervasive computing

Abstract : Context-awareness is a key challenge for pervasive computing, as it is a prime requirement towards delivering applications to users in a way that best matches user requirements, digital resources availability and physical conditions. However, enabling anytime, anywhere context-awareness, as targeted by pervasive computing, is further challenged by the openness of the environment, which requires making available context information in various computing environments. This then calls for the ad hoc networking of context sources and of context-aware applications, so that applications may always benefit from a context knowledge base, although it may be more or less rich, depending on the specific environment. Building upon the context management literature, and the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) paradigm that is a major enabler of open ad hoc networking, this paper sketches key context-aware system concepts that need be incorporated in the SOA style towards enabling context-aware services for pervasive computing.
