A SEMIOTIC APPROACH OF CONTEXTS FOR PERVASIVE SYSTEMS

Daniel Galarreta

Abstract

In this paper we examine the issue of contexts for pervasive systems and propose a semiotic definition of a context. We adopt a knowledge oriented approach – viz. a multi-viewpoints semiotics. We examine the relation between viewpoints and multimodality. The semiotic conceptual building we developed offers a convenient approach in elucidating the question of context. We give examples presenting a semiotic and multimodal context outside IT systems.
