Pervasive or ubiquitous computing enlarged traditional computing setting into the human layer of the earth. World Wide Web is the biggest digital information layer, hence it is unavoidable to stretch and integrate such an information layer over this new enlarged computing setting. It is reasonable to call such enlarged Web environment as uWeb, UbiquitousWeb. In this paper we propose an approach and a service oriented model for exploiting the vast amount of knowledge contained by the World Wide Web for context-aware pervasive computing environments.Machine understandability of web information is the key challenge for our purpose, since a typical pervasive computing setting covers variety of applications and devices with different characteristics.Our approach and model is based on the semantic web activities, particularly on embedded semantics.
