Incorporating service composition and pervasive computing into managing users' complex everyday activities calls for the Pervasive Service Composition paradigm for everyday life. In this paper, the authors propose the concept of Context-Aware Pervasive Service Composition (CAPSC), which aims at enabling a pervasive system to provide user service compositions that are relevant to the situation at hand. They investigate CAPSC requirements and design a CAPSC architecture by taking into account context-aware peer coordination, context-aware process service adaptation, and context-aware utility service adaptation. They present a proof of concept application prototype as well.
