In many areas of computer science ontologies become more and more important. The use of ontologies for domain modeling often brings up the issue of ontology integration. The task of merging several ontologies, covering specific subdomains, into one unified ontology has to be solved. Many approaches for ontology integration aim at automating the process of(More)
In future smart homes functionality will be provided to the inhabitants by software services decoupled from the underlying hardware devices. While this will enhance flexibility and will allow to provide cross-functionalities across multiple devices it will also lead to resource conflicts. Future devices will provide basic functionalities which are used by(More)
Software reuse and hardware integration are key factors to offer flexible, low-cost smart environments. Until now, we have been using a static process called the SCD-process to allow a tool-supported realization of such smart environments. The SCD-process is comprised of three different phases: specification, configuration, and deployment. As an initially(More)
