This course links the mobile and the Internet world together. It creates services based on user preferences and context information. The objective of the course is to analyze and discuss specific topics in service delivery on mobile devices. The course will introduce semantic technologies as the glue for interconnecting services, user preferences and context information. While the Internet service world is moving towards a semantic service oriented architecture (SOA), mobile services are often considered as stand-alone services.

The highly varying radio interface of a mobile device, together with the limitations in user interface, battery power and processor capability makes it necessary to establish new concepts for mobile service delivery. Our focus is to bring context-awareness and user preferences into the decision making algorithms.

Learning outcomes

What are you going to learn:

  • Collect publications for personalised service and context-aware services.
  • Identify the key-features of personalised and context-aware services
  • Tabulate the requirements for such services
  • Describe the difference between an Internet service, a mobile service and a proximity service
  • Present specific knowledge based on collected publications
  • Identify semantic technologies for description of the user and his context
  • Describe the difference between ontologies and rules
  • Establish interworking of ontologies created by members of the course
  • Construct rules to define the context of the user
  • Apply rules on top of ontologies to enhance knowledge
  • Produce examples of context-aware services
  • Evaluate the functionality of context-aware service examples


  • Principles of service oriented architecture and semantic service delivery
  • Protocols for service delivery in wireless radio networks
  • Approaches for mobile and proximity service inclusion in a semantic SOA environment
  • Practical experiences in building ontologies for user preferences, context description and service capability description

After the course, you will have gained an understanding of the state-of-the-art research in the area of mobile semantic service delivery. The compulsory tasks will will help the participants to improve scientific reading and presentation capabilities and programming expertise.
