In order to fulfil this task, proactive systems need to and benefit from taking users’ contexts into account, i.e. using the gathered sensor data to infer users’ state, activities, goals, and so on and to adjust their proactive behaviour accordingly.
In addition, mobile and pervasive environments have turned out to be a promising application area for proactive systems. Deploying proactive systems in such rapidly changing environments enforces the need to make them context-aware.
Context awareness in proactive systems opens up a lot of novel opportunities, however, it also poses new challenges upon proactive computing technology. The major objective of the workshop is to study and explore these challenges and proposed ways of meeting them. This includes research on modelling and representing context in proactive computing systems, frameworks and architectures for context handling, sensor and actuator management, context reasoning, learning, and prediction as well as on modelling, recognising and fulfilling user demand.
