Context Toolkit: Tutorial: References

The first paper is a good paper to read if you want some background on context and context-aware computing and it gives some insight on why we designed the toolkit like we did. The second paper discusses the concept of a context widget. The third paper goes into the details of the context toolkit design with a sample application (Conference Assistant) as an example. The fourth paper describes the most complex context-aware application that we have built, the Conference Assistant.
