      Salber, Daniel; Dey, Anind K.; Abowd, Gregory D. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1998)
      Context-enabled applications are just emerging and promise richer interaction by taking environmental context into account. However, they are difficult to build due to their distributed nature and the use of unconventional ...
    • Context-Awareness in Wearable and Ubiquitous Computing 

      Abowd, Gregory D.; Dey, Anind K.; Orr, Robert J.; Brotherton, Jason Alan (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1997)
      A common focus shared by researchers in mobile, ubiquitous and wearable computing is the attempt to break away from the traditional desktop computing paradigm. Computational services need to become as mobile as their users. ...
    • The Design and Use of a Generic Context Server 

      Salber, Daniel; Abowd, Gregory D. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1998)
      Although context awareness is a key component for perceptual user interfaces, we lack generic infrastructure for developing context aware applications. We propose a generic infrastructure based on context servers that ...
    • Designing for Ubiquitous Computing: A Case Study in Context Sensing 

      Salber, Daniel; Dey, Anind K.; Orr, Robert J.; Abowd, Gregory D. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1999)
      This paper reports ongoing experience with the design and everyday use of an electronic context-enabled in/out board. We designed this application as part of the development of a context toolkit and it proved a fruitful ...
    • Distributed Mediation of Imperfectly Sensed Context in Aware Environments 

      Dey, Anind K.; Mankoff, Jennifer C.; Abowd, Gregory D. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2000)
      Current context-aware services make the assumption that the context they are dealing with is correct. However, in reality, both sensed and interpreted context is often imperfect. In this paper, we describe an architecture ...
    • Dynamic Door Displays 

      Nguyen, David H.; Tullio, Joseph; Drewes, Tom; Mynatt, Elizabeth D. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2000)
      Traditionally, office doors have been used as display surfaces for communicating a variety of information between door owners and visitors. While flexible, doors also burden their owners with the task of maintenance and ...
    • Enabling the Generation, Preservation & Use of Records and Memories of Everyday Life 

      Truong, Khai Nhut; Abowd, Gregory D. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2002)
      Our daily lives provide us with a great deal of records and memories that we want to access at some point in the future. As a result, we often spend our time and effort trying to preserve much of these experiences. To ...
    • Evaluating the InfoCanvas Peripheral Awareness System: A Longitudinal, In Situ Study 

      Stasko, John T.; McColgin, Dave; Miller, Todd; Plaue, Christopher Michael; Pousman, Zachary L. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2005)
      A longitudinal, in situ study of the InfoCanvas, a prototype peripheral awareness system, was conducted. The InfoCanvas provides awareness of information through "information art", acting as a kind of electronic painting ...
