Context awareness refers to the capability of an application or a service being aware of its physical environment or situation (i.e., context) and responding proactively and intelligently based on such awareness (1, 7, 11). With recent developments in computer hardware, software, networking, and sensor technologies, context awareness becomes one of the most exiting trends in computing today that holds the potential to make our daily lives more productive, convenient, and enjoyable. For example, a tour-guide service gives tourists suggestions on the attractions to visit by considering their current locations, preferences, and even the prevailing weather conditions.
