Project R-948

Title

Study of the concept of context in relation to distributed applications possibly with distributed user interfaces in an Ambient Intelligence situation

Abstract

The Research Foundation Flanders acknowledges research group EDM (Hasselt University) (promotor prof. dr. Y. Berbers) a project for the period from 01.01.2005 until 31.12.2008. The current project contributes to the research on context in an Ambient Intelligence (AmI) environment. In such an environment application logic ("back-end") as well as the user interface ("front end") can be distributed and context-independent. The project aims to acquire an insight in the various aspects of context (here intended as the collection of all data that define the context), that in turn can be present either centrally or distributedly in the AmI environment.

Period of project

01 January 2005 - 31 December 2008
