  • End-user Configuration of Telco Services (31.05.2012)
    Proper handling of incoming calls depending on the location and availability of the callee is important both for the individual and for the organization in which they belong. The recent proliferation of smart phones can provide the end user with new graphical representations of relevant configuratio...
  • A Multiple Platform Approach to Building a Bus Route Information System for Mobile Devices (19.04.2012)
    The paper describes a multiple platform-based approach to creating a bus route information system for mobile devices. The system is context aware: users only need to tell the system (in natural language) where they wish to go, and the system takes care of the rest. The users are presented with a lis...
  • Context-Awareness and Real-Time Information in an Intelligent Smartphone Application (19.04.2012)
    With the constant increase in smartphone sales, integrated sensors and map navigation have now become available to the average user. This allows for mobile applications to use context-awareness to provide more relevant information. An interesting use-case for such applications is a route information...
  • Playing MUSIC — building context-aware and self-adaptive mobile applications (16.04.2012)
    Although the idea of context-awareness was introduced almost two decades ago, few mobile software applications are available today that can sense and adapt to their run-time environment. The development of context-aware and self-adaptive applications is complex and few developers have experience in ...
  • End-user Composition of Web-based Services: The "Plus Alpha" Approach (26.09.2011)
    The Web is truly becoming ubiquitous now that more and more people own a mobile device with a web browser. Many users want to exploit the fact that they can be online practically 24 hours a day, and they have ideas about what services they need. However, most of the users are not proficient in any p...
  • Towards Ontology-Driven End-User Composition of Personalized Mobile Services (28.06.2011)
    With mobile devices being an integral part of the daily life of millions of users having little or no ICT knowledge, mobile services are being developed to save them from difficult or tedious tasks without compromising their needs. Starting with a number of real life scenarios we have been working t...
  • A Framework for User-Tailored City Exploration (08.06.2011)
    Despite advances in mobile computing technologies,end-user development has mainly focused on desktop applications. Fundamentally contrasting desktop applications, mobile applications should satisfy the changing needs and tasks of the users on the move, and usually have a strong affinity with the phy...
  • End-User Service Composition in Mobile Pervasive Environments (07.06.2011)
    Intelligent objects and devices are becoming part of the environment where people live. The more mobile and pervasive computing becomes, the greater opportunity users potentially have to customize the computing activities that take place around them. For some people the availability of devices and s...
  • Tool Chain for End-Users Service Composition (01.11.2010)
    This publication presents a tool chain for end-users service composition. The tool chain includes two tools: The EasyComposer is a graphical service creation environment aimed for the end-users. The EasyDroid is a service execution environment capable of executing EasyComposer composite services on ...
  • User-Centered Security, Privacy and Trust in Ubiquitous Social Network Services (01.11.2010)
    Social Networks, Mobile Internet and Location-Awareness nowadays can be combined into a new type of ubiquitous environments (“Future Internet”, location-aware social networks), where security, privacy and trust are very important problems, especially for end-users. These are relatively new research ...
  • Service Composition for End-Users: a tool for Telephony Services (11.10.2010)
    This paper presents a graphical tool for end-user service composition. The tool, EasyComposer, has been developed within the context of a research project addressing end-user service composition in ubiquitous service environments. The EasyComposer is a simple composition tool that the end user can u...
  • A Developer-Friendly Approach for the Validation of Dynamic Compositions (04.10.2010)
    A major challenge of dynamic composition is to find ways to model components and analyze their composition in order to guaran- tee that the composition is free from interaction errors and deadlocks. Existing techniques for validation typically require expert knowledge in formal modelling and reasoni...
  • A Comprehensive Engineering Framework for Guaranteeing Component Compatibility (10.09.2010)
    Despite advances in software engineering methods and tools, understanding what software components do and ensuring that they work well together remains difficult. This is chiefly due to the lack of support for specifying component interfaces and software compositions formally. Due to these shortcomi...
  • “РАДУГА”: Runtime Dynamic Composition of Distributed Collaborative Services in Ubiquitous Environments (03.11.2009)
    The research problem is to create method for run-time composition, formal modeling (specification, validation) with immediate automated implementing of new run-time changes and dynamicity properties of distributed software, which realize collaborative services in ubiquitous environments. ”РАДУГА” i...
  • Compose your own City Guide (03.11.2009)
    This publication discusses one of the project case scenarios, the City Guide scenario, and describes an initial experiment done in order to develop and validate the user interface of a service composition tool for creating mobile tourist services in a city environment.
