Place-Based Virtual Community – A New Approach for Context-Aware Applications

  title={Place-Based Virtual Community – A New Approach for Context-Aware Applications},
  author={Tuan Minh Nguyen},
When a new mobile device joins pervasive computing environment, it has to discover the environment structure so it can best integrate and can be served by the environment. Development of appropriate “device joining” mechanism for such environment is one of the major issues in pervasive computing. This PhD proposal introduces a Place-Based Virtual Community (PBVC) as a new approach for solving the device joining problem in the context-aware environment. The PBVC is considered as a virtual world… CONTINUE READING
