Pervasive systems are becoming increasingly popular, with the appearance and penetration of mobile devices such as Smart phones. Proactive service is one of the most important fields of research in pervasive computing. The authors propose a method for an effective proactive service in pervasive computing environment. Most of previous researches do not consider characteristics of both social network and context aware computing. For proactive service, they consider context-aware computing in pervasive computing environment. Moreover, they use social network for proactive service. Their method provides service proactively for each user's context using social relationship.
