Adaptation in context‐aware pervasive information systems: the SECAS project

Adaptation in context‐aware pervasive information systems: the SECAS project Purpose – The simple environment for context aware systems (SECAS) Project deals with the adaptation of applications to the context (user preferences and environment, terminal, etc.). The authors aim to develop a platform which makes the services, data and the user interface of applications adaptable to different context situations. Design/methodology/approach – Previous research has concentrated on how to capture context data and how to carry it to the application. The present work focuses on the impact of context on the application core. A case study in the medical field is also analysed. Findings – The paper illustrates a new definition of the context which separates the application data from the parameters of the context. This definition helps to establish a complete study on how to adapt applications on their three dimensions (services, content and presentation) to the context. Originality/value – The paper presents the SECAS platform, one that ensures the deployment of adaptive context‐aware applications. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Pervasive Computing and Communications Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Purpose – The simple environment for context aware systems (SECAS) Project deals with the adaptation of applications to the context (user preferences and environment, terminal, etc.). The authors aim to develop a platform which makes the services, data and the user interface of applications adaptable to different context situations. Design/methodology/approach – Previous research has concentrated on how to capture context data and how to carry it to the application. The present work focuses on the impact of context on the application core. A case study in the medical field is also analysed. Findings – The paper illustrates a new definition of the context which separates the application data from the parameters of the context. This definition helps to establish a complete study on how to adapt applications on their three dimensions (services, content and presentation) to the context. Originality/value – The paper presents the SECAS platform, one that ensures the deployment of adaptive context‐aware applications.
