This quantity of the LNCS is the formal court cases of the 2d ecu Symposium on Ambient Intelligence, EUSAI 2004. This occasion was once hung on November 8–10, 2004 on the Eindhoven college of know-how, in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. EUSAI 2004 a winning first occasion in 2003, geared up via Philips learn. This became out to be a well timed initiative that created a discussion board for bringing jointly ecu researchers, engaged on diverse disciplines all contributing in the direction of the human-centric technological imaginative and prescient of ambient intelligence. in comparison to meetings engaged on related and overlapping fields, the 1st EUSAI was once characterised through a robust commercial concentration mirrored within the application committee and the content material of this system. As application chairs of EUSAI 2004 we attempted to maintain the nature for this occasion and its mixed specialize in the 4 significant thematic components: ubiquitous computing, context information, intelligence, and normal interplay. extra, we attempted to make EUSAI 2004 develop right into a full-fledged double-track convention, with surrounding occasions like tutorials and really good workshops, a poster and demonstration exhibition and a pupil layout pageant. The convention software incorporated 3 invited keynotes, Ted Selker from MIT, Tom Rodden from the collage of Nottingham and Tom Erickson from IBM.

1 Introduction With the explosive growth of wireless Internet and other WLAN applications, it has become more and more important to improve the spectral efficiency and throughput of WLAN systems. 11 WLAN MAC [1] protocol has been intensely analyzed and various mechanisms have been proposed for performance enhancement [2,3].

Using Ontologies to Address Key Issues in Ubiquitous Computing Systems 7 23 Lessons Learned and Future Work In this paper we outlined a set of key issues that arise during the composition of UbiComp applications and presented how ontologies can be used so that to address such issues. We supported our approach by describing the GAS Ontology that we developed and integrated into the GAS, a framework that supports the deployment of UbiComp applications using the artifacts as building blocks. Although in this paper we showed through simple examples the use of the GAS Ontology in UbiComp applications, this ontology has been used so that to compose and deploy a number of UbiComp applications.

Note that the GAS Ontology manager is responsible for storing knowledge into an artifact’s GASHO-volatile by using the definitions of the concepts represented in the GAS-CO. As the context information that is used in the UbiComp applications describes the physical and digital properties of artifacts, it is represented into both the GAS-CO and each artifact’s GAS-HO-static. Note that the developer of the ubiquitous computing system has access to this information and can change it or add new elements.
