The representation, discovery and exchange of context information in a mobile ad-hoc environment is challenging due to the dynamic nature of node movement and interaction. In this paper a new method to exchange context in a Mobile Ad-hoc and Sensor Network (MSN), where the format of context parameters are organized and efficient communication is maintained. A context representative repository, called Context information Base (CiB) and a communication protocol called Context information Communication protocol (CiComm) are presented to implement contextual features. NS-2 has been used to simulate the authors' work, which depicted high context discovery success and low service discovery bandwidth.
