Description:
This project aims to design and build an application framework for supporting context-aware location-based services. The context-awareness here represents a system that perceives the situation from spatio-temporal information about users and reacts on an ad hoc basis by adapting to the environment. Till now, LBS applications have been only proximity-based.

The problem to which we will apply context-awareness is that of delivering personalised services for mobile device users in big events, such as UNSW open day or Sydney Film Festivals. We will design a framework that can prioritise a user's tasks (e.g., where to go, what to see) based on location, time and any other relevant context (e.g., social network feeds) information so that available/preferable services can be intelligently determined. Users then will be notified of such services and/or data that can assist their planning, organising, decision making, or carrying out the tasks decisively.
