An ontology-enabled Service Oriented Architecture for pervasive computing

Q. Ni, M. Sloman
2005 International Conference on Information Technology: Coding and Computing (ITCC'05) - Volume II

Follow Me, Follow You - Spatiotemporal Community Context Modeling and Adaptation for Mobile Information Systems

Yiwei Cao, Ralf Klamma, Min Hou, Matthias Jarke
2008 The Ninth International Conference on Mobile Data Management (mdm 2008)  
One reason is that community context and spatiotemporal context information are not well taken into consideration. In this paper we propose an ontology-based context model using OWL/RDF.  ...  We employ the MPEG-7 and MPEG-21 metadata standards to realize multimedia adaptation to device preferences.  ...  According to the analysis result only the ontology-based modeling approach fulfills assets for context modeling in pervasive computing environments.  ...
