Title: Middleware and Context Inference Techniques from DataStreams for the Development of ContextAware Services using Mobile Devices
Coordination: Luis Manuel Antunes Veiga
Description:Context information, i.e., the specific state each user is in, allows communication providers to develop and thus offer new, added value, services for a wide range of applications such as social networking, advertising, navigation or leisure. Of growing importance are health related services and applications that rely on the accurate detection of each user’s physical activity either at specific instances or throughout days or even weeks. Using this information it is possible to discover and analyze physical activity patterns and, e.g., help individuals to lead healthier lifestyles.
