Research output: Conference paperContribution


Travel has many situations where context-aware computing can bring important benefits: pointing out notorious delays or bad weather during the planning phase, allowing the user to replan for handling unexpected situations, or suggesting flight alternatives to avoid strikes. In this paper, we describe an approach for integrating context-aware computing to a mobile travel assistant. Travel plans, generated using booking information and meeting descriptions, are enriched within compact and powerful structures, called User Task Models. These structures are transferred to a mobile device enabling the support for the traveler during his trip. The overall result is what we call an Intelligent Mobile Travel Assistant.
