ABSTRACT Context-awareness is viewed as one of the most important aspects in the emerging pervasive computing paradigm. Mobile context-aware
applications are required to sense and react to changing environment conditions. Such applications, usually, need to recognize,
classify and predict context in order to act efficiently, beforehand, for the benefit of the user. In this paper, we propose
a mobility prediction model, which deals with context representation and location prediction of moving users. Machine Learning
(ML) techniques are used for trajectory classification. Spatial and temporal on-line clustering is adopted. We rely on Adaptive
Resonance Theory (ART) for location prediction. Location prediction is treated as a context classification problem. We introduce
a novel classifier that applies a Hausdorff-like distance over the extracted trajectories handling location prediction. Since
our approach is time-sensitive, the Hausdorff distance is considered more advantageous than a simple Euclidean norm. A learning
method is presented and evaluated. We compare ART with Offline kMeans and Online kMeans algorithms. Our findings are very promising for the use of the proposed model in mobile context aware applications.

    ABSTRACT: With the rapid growth of socio-technical ecosystems, smart interactions and services are permeating every walk of life. As smart interactions must managed automatically and interactively in response to evolving user’s matters of concern, the smart Internet requires creative approaches where services and interactions are implemented with awareness of, and dynamic adaptation to, users, computational environments, changing policies and unknown requirements. Consequently, modeling and managing dynamic context is critical for implementing smart services and smart interactions effectively. Thus, smart interactions need infrastructure to acquire, compose, and distribute context information to multiple execution endpoints. Moreover, context management must be controlled and governed to optimize system properties. This chapter surveys context modeling and management approaches intended for the optimization of smart interactions and services, discusses the main challenges and requirements of context-awareness in the smart Internet, and provides a feature-based framework useful for the evaluation and implementation of context modeling and management mechanisms.

    ABSTRACT: This paper presents a mobility prediction technique based on one of the most used Data mining technique which is the association rules. Our solution can be implemented on a next-generation mobile networks by exploiting the data available on existing infrastructure (roads, locations of base stations ...etc.) and the users' displacements history. Simulations carried out using a realistic model of movements showed that our strategy can accurately predict up to 90% of the users' movements by knowing only their last two movements.
