    Among the many branches of computer science, ubiquitous computing enjoys an unusually distinguished history of creating and deploying prototypes. Why is this? A tempting answer is that many ubicomp researchers and practitioners have backgrounds in subjects such as HCI and systems--areas with a strong focus on learning from deploying working prototypes. However, a more compelling answer might be th... View full abstract»

    The University of Malaga's wireless communications and pervasive computing team is developing software tools to enhance distributed mobile applications' development and deployment phases. So, our first aim was to obtain tools based on wireless devices. On the other hand, traditional methods for analyzing mobile data communications' performance in realistic scenarios were based on trials, using mob... View full abstract»

    A context-aware media recommendation platform uses an NtimesM-dimensional model and a hybrid processing approach to support media recommendation, adaptation, and delivery for smart phones. To provide media recommendations for smart phones based on all three context categories, we present a generic and flexible NtimesM-dimensional (N2M) recommendation model. The model considers context information ... View full abstract»
