nd those complaints include the papers offered on the 2 overseas Workshop on position- and Context-Awareness in could of 2006. As computing strikes more and more into the standard international, the significance of place and context wisdom grows. the diversity of contexts encountered whereas sitting at a table engaged on a working laptop or computer is particularly constrained in comparison to the big number of occasions skilled clear of the computing device. For computing to be appropriate and beneficial in those occasions, the pcs should have wisdom of the user’s job, assets, frame of mind, and objectives, i.e., the user’s context, of which place is a crucial indicator. This workshop was once meant to give examine geared toward sensing, inferring, and utilizing place and context info in ways in which support the person. Our demand papers ended in seventy four submissions, each one of which used to be assigned to individuals of our software Committee. After experiences and electronic mail dialogue, we chosen 18 papers for ebook in those complaints. lots of the permitted papers underwent a shepherding method via a reviewer or a member of this system Co- ittee to make sure that the reviewers’ reviews have been accounted for within the released model. We consider our selective evaluate technique and shepherding part have led to a superb set of released papers. We expand a honest “thank you” to the entire authors who submitted papers, to our hard-working software Committee, our considerate reviewers, and our conscientious shepherds. may perhaps 2006 Mike Hazas and John Krumm, software Co-chairs Thomas Strang, Workshop Chair

1 The Outer Code For the outer code a linear BCH code was implemented, similar to that of Rizzo [13]. The premise of such a code is that a K×N generator matrix, G, acts on an input vector,x, of size K to produce an encoded vector of size N, y = Gx. (1) The received data vector, y , is then a subset of y and must have a size of at least K for decode. A decode matrix can be created by first constructing a K×K matrix G and then inverting it. −1 x=G y. (2) Cluster Tagging: Robust Fiducial Tracking for Smart Environments 25 From this relation is should be apparent that G is constructed from the rows of G corresponding to any K elements of y .

One type of context information is location which can be used in its simplest form to implement new services optimized based on the location information. M. Hazas, J.

The WRC can be in the form of either a tag, phone, PDA or laptop. Such systems need to address several ways in which the signal strength can vary. The variations can be grouped into large and smallscale spatial, temporal, and sensor variations as shown in Table 1.
