Context Awareness for Group Interaction Support


A. Ferscha, C. Holzmann, S. Oppl - Context Awareness for Group Interaction Support - Proceedings of the 2nd International Workshop on Mobility Management and Wireless Access (MobiWac 2004), co-located with MobiCom 2004, Philadelphia, PA, Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika, 2004, pp. 88-97


In this paper, we present an implemented system for supporting group interaction in mobile distributed computing environments. First, an introduction to context computing and a motivation for using contextual information to facilitate group interaction is given. We then present the architecture of our system, which consists of two parts: a subsystem for location sensing that acquires information about the location of users as well as spatial proximities between them, and one for the actual context-aware application, which provides services for group interaction.
