The Autonomic Pervasive Computing can simplify the complexity of the configuration, maintenance and management of pervasive environments such as smart spaces. The Pervasive Computing is a paradigm where the information processes are distributed in the environment components, bringing processes more closer to the information context. On the other hand, the(More)
The self-configuration process can simplify the complexity and reduce the cost of the management and deployment of devices, applications and services in smart spaces. Mechanisms inspired from the Autonomic Computing and Pervasive Computing can be used to automate management of the heterogeneous space's component. In this paper, we present our work on(More)
This paper presents a universal ontology for smart environments aiming to overcome the limitations of the existing ontologies. We enrich our ontology by adding new environmental aspects such as the referentiality and environmental change, that can be used to describe domains as well as applications. We show through a case study how our ontology is used and(More)
Context-aware software provides adapted services to users or other software components. On the other hand, Autonomic Pervasive Computing uses Context to reduce the complexity of pervasive system utilization, management and maintenance. This paper introduces two Context-awareness models, the macro and micro approaches, that define and integrate contextual(More)
