Thank you very much, Claudia J

Could we have access to all of the cited papers in the .doc [1-6] ?

I’ll start trying to fetch them by myself, but if you can save us some time,
that would be great.

Kind regards,

Asunto: [Accessforall] Task Force on Context Description - Definition of


Hello all, 

For our discussion on context description it is necessary to have a look on
existing definitions especially to find correct terms. I found a paper that
proposes a structured definition of the term context as well as an overview
of other definitions and concepts.  After reading this paper I am convinced
we should either find a more exact term what we are trying to define/collect
(e.g. influenced spatial and temporal situation) or consider the context as
a characterization of a user situation, for example, as defined by Dey
("Context is any information that can be used to characterize the situation
of an entity") and Zimmerman respectively.

I recommend having a look on the paper you can find attached or on the
following link:  <http://www.springerlink.com/content/95573j68g0g315j9/>

Furthermore I summarized some relevant facts from the paper in the document


Kind regards
