The Conference Assistant: Combining Context-Awareness with Wearable Computing
Anind K. Dey, Masayasu Futakawa, Daniel Salber & Gregory D. Abowd

We describe the Conference Assistant, a prototype mobile, context-aware application that assists conference attendees. We discuss the strong relationship between context-awareness and wearable computing and apply this relationship in the Conference Assistant. The application uses a wide variety of context and enhances user interactions with both the environment and other users. We describe how the application is used and the context-aware architecture on which it was based.
