The 14th foreign Smalltalk convention happened within the ?rst week of September 2006 in Prague, Czech Republic. This quantity includes the pe- reviewed technical papers that have been provided through the educational tune of the convention. The overseas Smalltalk convention evolvedout of the once a year assembly of the ecu Smalltalk consumer workforce (ESUG). This assembly often lasts a couple of week and permits Smalltalk specialists to debate Smalltalk options and envir- ments. The assembly draws a various viewers along with Smalltalkers from in addition to from academia. due to the perpetual e?ort of individuals like St´ ephane Ducasse, Noury Bouraqadi, Serge Stinckwich and Roel Wuyts, through the years the ESUG assembly used to be supplied with a separate educational study song within which researchers may possibly current educational effects approximately Smalltalk and its improvement instruments. regrettably, no formal booklet discussion board used to be - sociated with this song, which made it much less appealing for authors to publish a paper. beginning with this variation of the convention, we are hoping this can swap. An contract was once reached with Springer to put up a post-conference lawsuits of this 14th variation. i feel our group owes a massive thanks to St´ ephane for this! optimistically subsequent yr this contract can evolve right into a fifteenth variation of the convention with officially introduced lawsuits. this may definitely encourage extra Smalltalk researchers to post a paper! The convention authorised simply over half the submissions.

Example text

Following a similar path, CARISMA is a middleware model that enables context-aware interactions between mobile applications. The middleware interacts with the underlying operating system and it is responsible for maintaining a representation of the execution context. g. g. g. user activity or mood). CARISMA provides an abstraction of the middleware as a customizable service provider, so that a service can be delivered in different ways (using different policies) when requested in different context.

On the other hand, Geometric models [11] are well suited for representing large areas where accuracy does matter or when it is necessary to calculate distances between objects with an important level of correctness. As a drawback, creating geometrical models for large maps (for example, a city) is a hard task (when not impossible) without the aid of a specialized organization. Also, geometrical models don’t add semantics to the regions they represent, they just provide the boundaries for performing calculations; so, if we want to tag a specific polygon as being the Plaza Hotel, we must do it manually.

As a consequence, the student’s smarthpone could be switched to silent mode so that it doesn’t interrupt the teacher in the middle of his lecture. e. to provide services that correspond to the actual location context. The next challenge involves adapting the behavior to the user’s role (a professor, student, etc) and other contextual parameters such as current time or activity. While applications of this kind have always been built almost completely from scratch, we consider that this will not be the case if context-aware computing becomes mainstream; we will have to adapt dozens of legacy applications by adding context-aware behavior.
