IP-based Multimedia creation and consumption is becoming available on an increasing spectrum of devices ranging from low-powered portable devices like cell phones and PDA's to high powered static devices like desktops PCs and IPTVs. High-speed wireless and wire-line network access is becoming widespread. Multimedia services like IPTV, Video-on-demand and(More)
Mobile phones have emerged as truly pervasive and affordable Information and Communication Technology (ICT) platform in the last decade. Large penetration of cellular networks and availability of advanced hardware platforms have inspired multiple innovative research opportunities in mobile computing domain. However, most of the research challenges have(More)
Sharing personal context information using mobile phone is receiving considerable attentions in ubiquitous computing applications. The most common architecture for sharing personal context information via mobile phone uses centralized server. Such server-based architecture, however, cannot avoid waste of mobile phone's limited resources for sharing personal(More)
Today, professional documents, created in applications such as PowerPoint and Word, can be shared using ubiquitous mobile terminals connected to the Internet. GoogleDocs and EasyMeet are good examples of such collaborative web applications dedicated to professional documents. The static adaptation of professional documents has been studied extensively.(More)
Location-aware mobile applications are steadily gaining popularity across the world. However, lack of Global Positioning System (GPS) and absence of Wi-Fi infrastructure prevent users with non-Smart phones (majority of population in developing countries) from using location-aware applications as their phones do not have access to their current location.(More)
In the context of mobile Web conferencing, slide documents are generally transcoded into JPEG format and wrapped into a Web page prior to delivery. Given the diversity of these devices and their networks, dynamically identifying the optimal transcoding parameters is very challenging, as the number of transcoding parameters combinations could be very high.(More)
In mobile Web conferencing, enterprise documents are generally adapted into JPEG-based Web pages to be visualized on mobile devices. Dynamically identifying the optimal adapted content is very challenging, as a compromise between high visual quality and small delivery time must be made. In this paper, we propose a robust prediction-based dynamic content(More)
Mobile technologies and services are playing critical roles in mobile work. One area is mobile collaboration where mobile telephony and data sharing are in high demand. This paper explores and demonstrates that enabling meetings for the mobile context to support “anywhere and anytime” collaboration poses new opportunities, challenges, and tools. EasyMeet(More)
Efficiently maintaining and managing personal relationships have become imperative in our personal and professional lives. In this paper we describe the design of a mobile Personal Relationship Manager (PRM), a prototype implementation on Nokia S60 smartphones, and results from initial user studies. The PRM system automatically extracts and manages contacts(More)
