2014 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we present an ontology based approach for the development of context aware services.  ...  Ontologies presents the most promising instrument for context modeling and managing due to their high and formal expressiveness and the possibilities for applying ontology reasoning techniques.  ...  This architectural model is designed to provide a structural diagram to enable the coordination, cooperation and configuration of distributed functionality in a context aware platform.  ...
