Object technology is becoming the technology of choice for programming ubiquitous computing devices and their environment. Different flavours of Java and middleware are appearing to allow the interconnection and interaction between pervasive devices operating at different scales. Within this environment, context is an important and powerful concept, referring to the physical and social situation in which objects are embedded.
If context-aware applications and environments are to be built, what new set of issues must be confronted? This workshop is intended to bring together researchers and practitioners to discuss the issues inherent in engineering context-aware applications and environments. The goal of this workshop is to determine those issues in representing, interpreting and delivering context information that can help lead to new approaches and techniques for building a generic supporting infrastructure for object-oriented context-aware applications.
