In this paper, we present the eCASA system architecture, which allows a service provider to develop and to furnish context-aware mobile services by integrating different service components. These components may be implemented by means of the "off-the-shelf" technologies.

    ABSTRACT: The paper describes the Virtual Immersive Communication (VICOM) project, and reports the state of art with respect to the wireless networking issues. The project vertically exploits the enabling technologies for Immersive communications enriched with virtual reality components. The research topics are common driven toward the final project goal, consisting in proof of concept demonstrators: Mobility in Immersive Environments (MIE) and Virtual Immersive Learning (VIL).

    ABSTRACT: The use of situational information is becoming increasingly important in the domain of mobile commerce. Applications and services in mobile environments are expected to be situation dependent in order to adapt themselves to continuously changing situations. However, little attention has been given to the issue on modeling situation dependent service process formally to understand a user's situation better and further enable us to promote the implementation of situation dependent applications and services. In this paper, we present a framework for modeling situation dependent service process based on the situation calculus. We also propose a systematic and stepwise approach that allows specifications of the service process to be formulated so as to facilitate development of various situation dependent applications and services.
