Third Workshop on Context Awareness for Proactive Systems (CAPS 2007)
The workshop will provide a unique platform to discuss and exchange findings of research into proactive computing and communication systems. Their connection to the physical world is increasingly driven by sensors and actuators which are used to both measure and manipulate the physical environment. The environmental data gathered is one of the major influencing factors for proactive systems, the data acts as stimuli to which these systems respond. Such responses are mainly in terms of providing users with appropriate resources, information, and services.
To achieve this, proactive systems need to be able to understand the different contexts that apply in and for any given user/communication situation. Such context awareness is based on inference of sensor data to achieve knowledge on a users
