Abstract
The proliferation of mobile devices in our daily-life implies a com-
plete re-organisation of the IT architecture. Mobile objects (people and
software or hardware or combinations thereof) face dynamic and drastic
changes of context. Context awareness helps an application respond ap-
propriately to, and take advantage of, these context changes. This paper
discusses the concepts of context and context-awareness for the mobile
computing environment, and sketches our context-awareness model which
is based on an event noti cation service. The model enables each indi-
vidual entity of a mobile environment to be aware not only of its own
