Abstract

Ubiquitous computing is a recent research domain that has attracted interest from several researchers. Its main objective is allowing users to access data anytime, anywhere, in particular using Mobile Devices (MD).Applications in this domain are sensitive to the context and must be able to perceive it to adapt their behaviours to this context, taking into consideration data that deals with the context of use and user preferences. Data about context of use provides in particular a conditions description (temporal, spatial, hardware, etc.) under which the user accesses Information Systems (IS). Data about user preferences aims at expressing what the user would like to obtain from the system considering different aspects (activities display, etc.) to meet nomadic users’ expectations. In this paper, we attempt to answer this problem by proposing a novel approach allowing essentially: (1) representing the semantic context and nomadic user’s preferences through a novel proposed ontology, (2)resolving conflicts that may arise between user preferences and, (3) adapting such applications to the context of use and user’s profile by adapting the user’s request.
