Executive Summary

Being context-aware will improve how software adapts to dynamic changes influenced by various factors during the operation of the software. Context-aware techniques have been widely applied in different types of applications, but still are limited to small scale or single-organizational environments due to the lack of well-agreed interfaces, protocols, and models for exchanging context data.
