Context-awareness is a key feature of pervasive computing whose environments keep evolving. The support of context-awareness requires comprehensive management including detection and resolution of context inconsistency, which occurs naturally in pervasive computing. In this paper we present a framework for realizing dynamic context consistency management. The framework supports inconsistency detection based on a semantic matching and inconsistency triggering model, and inconsistency resolution
