Reaching Activities by Places in the Context-Aware Environments Using Software Sensors

Context-aware systems sense the user's situation and provide an interaction that adapts and behave accordingly. To reach a level of user's satisfaction the systems need to be aware of activity context (i.e., what user is doing?). To sense the activity context the popular methods are hardware sensors for example tracking devices etc., or recordings of the behaviour which occurred in the past. However, as the authors use web services in the people day to day life to get their tasks done, for example navigation, calendar, email, profile etc., stimulates the research to sense the user's information using software sensors which can also be most relevant and circumstantial.
