Abstract: The significance of ubiquitous computing is rapidly growing on a global scale with the current trend towards mobile computing, computer networks, and wireless communication in business and personal use. We combine principals from ubiquitous computing and context-aware applications to create a framework for location-aware applications to global mobile networks. This paper presents the design for a context-aware mobile information system (CAMIS). The system will support users with location-specific information services and applications. The system uses the concept of a non-intrusive Push to deliver information to mobile users using cell-broadcast technology.

Keywords: cell broadcast; context-aware; CAMIS; location information; mobile networks; mobile communications.
