The definition of context experienced an evolution in the research area of context-aware computing, but still suffers from either generality or in-completeness. Furthermore, many definitions are driven by the ease of implementation. This paper introduces two extensions to available context definitions that provide a natural understanding of this concept to(More)
We have screened a Xenopus ovary cDNA library using a synthetic oligonucleotide derived from that part of the inhibin beta A sequence, which is highly conserved within the TGF-beta family. Out of several clones yielding autoradiographic signals four turned out to represent Xenopus counterparts to the human bone morphogenetic protein 4 (BMP-4). Each two of(More)
The Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway plays crucial roles in early hindbrain formation, and its constitutive activity is associated with a subset of human medulloblastoma, a malignant childhood tumor of the posterior fossa. However, the precise function of Wnt/β-catenin signaling during cerebellar development is still elusive. We generated(More)
To utilize interactive multimedia applications in public and private environments for advertisement, entertainment and user guidance requires remote input capabilities. The use of mobile and handheld devices is a desirable option for implementation of user interaction with remote services from a distance. Another prominent option to operate a remote(More)
Supporting the individual user in his working, learning, or information access is one of the main goals of user modeling. Personal or group user models make it possible to represent and use information about preferences, knowledge, abilities, emotional states, and many other characteristics of a user to adapt the user experience and support. Nowadays, the(More)
In the field of mobile health monitoring the current most important user groups are those aged 50+. In our project senSAVE r we developed a user interface for monitoring vital personal parameters that is specifically adapted to the needs of this group. The group is said to show less perception and control capability and has less experience in the use of(More)
The key for successfully deploy mobile applications is the ability to understand the specific needs of its customers. In the field of mobile health monitoring, the currently most important user group is the group of persons of the age 50+. In our project senSAVE® we developed a user interface for monitoring personal vital parameters that is(More)
The paper illustrates approaches for making audio-augmented museum environments adaptive. Based on well-known user modeling techniques we present a combination of suitable components that adapt audio information to the interests, preferences and motion of a museum's visitor. The underlying environment, i.e. the carrier and transmitter of information, is(More)
