An Application Framework for Seamless Synchronous Collaboration Support in Ubiquitous Computing Environments

Han, S. and Nijdam, N. and Magnenat-Thalmann, N.


Abstract: Dynamic and heterogeneous nature of ubiquitous computing environments introduces additional requirements to support synchronous collaboration. Such requirements include support of various interaction types, flexible data couplings, and transparent context adaptation. To meet those requirements, in this paper, we propose the manipulation based application model. In comparison to the presentation semantics split model [5], we introduce the manipulation in between the presentation and shared semantics. A manipulation is a fragment of the semantics, which is dynamically created when a presentation requires personalized interaction to the shared semantics. A manipulation enables transparent context adaptation by migrating its states to a new manipulation of the different presentation to adapt the current context, e.g., user location change. We prototyped the proposed application framework and tested the feasibility of the framework.
