Context-Aware Local Service Fabrics in Large Scale UbicompEnvironments (CoLaSUE)

This project fits within the ubiquitous computing research area, in which physical entities (people, places, and things) can cooperate in order to provide services to nearby users; a service is available in the vicinity of the corresponding entity. Current ubiquitous computing environments are small scale and typically cover a limited area such as a single room or house. This proposal addresses the challenge of creating future large-scale ubiquitous environments that span regions ranging from a few blocks of a city to a complete city. Special attention goes to the description, dissemination, selection of services that improve accessibility of city services. This proposal goes beyond traditional web services. It does not target global services available across the whole environment, but local services provided by nearby entities and available only in their vicinity.
