A Formal Treatment of Context-Awareness [chapter]

Gruia-Catalin Roman, Christine Julien, Jamie Payton
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper we seek to develop a systematic understanding of the quintessential nature of context-aware computing by constructing a formal model and notation for expressing context-aware computations  ...  Furthermore, we assume a notion of context that is relative to the needs of each individual component, and we expect context-awareness to be maintained in a totally transparent manner with minimal programming  ...  Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this paper are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the sponsoring agencies.  ...

BigNFC: Novel Formal model for NFC based context-aware applications

Aicha Nabet, Rachid Systèmes Boudour
2021 Informatica (Ljubljana, Tiskana izd.)  
In literature, most of works focuses on creating a general model for context-aware systems ignoring the specificity of certain applications such as NFC applications where they present a higher complexity  ...  Having such systems with the Near Field Communications (NFC) capability, opens new perspectives and research areas, allowing very useful type of applications known as NFCbased context-aware applications  ...  After presenting a general survey on works in the field of context aware using formal model, we note these works suggest a generic formal model for context aware system without focusing on specificity  ...

Darine Ameyed, Moeiz Miraoui, Chakib Tadj
2016 International Journal of Advanced Computer Science and Applications  
Given the permanent evolution of context-aware systems, context modeling is still a complex task, due to the lack of an adequate, dynamic, formal and relevant context representation.  ...  It also proposes a preliminary formal spatiotemporal context modelling based on first order logic, derived from the structure of natural languages.  ...  This difference may be overcome by various types of context information processing.
