Abstract

Two differing context-aware projects are described in this paper as a basis for exploring and better understanding the nature of context and context-aware applications. The investigation reveals that although indeed a useful concept, better supporting infrastructure is required before it can become a feasible mainstream technology. In particular, we propose the concept of a context information service to address this need, and define the general characteristics that such a service should exhibit.
