End-User Development of Context-dependent Applications based on Trigger-Action Rules

  • Speaker:   Dr  Fabio Paterno  (ISTI)
  • Host:   Simon Harper
  • 6th April 2016 at 14:00 in Kilburn L.T. 1.4
The advent of mobile technologies and the Internet of Things have made extremely variable and dynamic the contexts of use in which we access our applications. This talk describes a solution able to support end user development of interactive applications able to adapt to the various types of contextual events (that can be related to users, devices, environments, and social relationships). The context-dependent behavior is modelled through trigger / action rules, which can be specified by people without programming experience, and can be applied to Web applications that were not originally designed to be context-aware in order to create versions customized for specific contexts of use and needs . I will discuss the main issues to address when designing such authoring environments and show an example solution.

Tea and biscuits will be served from 3pm in the Staff tearoom for an infomal chat.
