A survey of proactive pervasive computing

Sebastian VanSyckel, Christian Becker
2014 Proceedings of the 2014 ACM International Joint Conference on Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing Adjunct Publication - UbiComp '14 Adjunct  
Pervasive computing applications are context-aware and adapt in order to cope with changes in their environment. In this, they should be as unobtrusive as possible.  ...  However, the framework specifically offers an interface for applications to access predictions and, thus, is a context-aware application/ adaptation framework.  ...  Similarly, ProWMS [9] is a context-aware web service pre-fetching strategy for mobile devices based on user preferences.  ...
