Abstract

The circumstances of a mobile computer use (i.e., application cases involving user mobility such as outdoor, on the move) require new approaches in application system development and create a high demand for specialized, task-oriented system features. Any service being offered has to be able to account for, adjust itself, and be responsive to the increasing diversity of prospective users and their unpredictable usage environments; thus, to the highly changing requirements plus platform specification and availability. The achievement of this attribute is even more challenging when the service should be a basis for a digitally mediated human-to-human communication process involving all kinds of diversity between the individual partners and technical arrangements. In this thesis work, proposals and innovative solutions to these challenges have been investigated and implemented, and are presented in this report. Some contributions of this work are: an adaptive conference system for heterogeneous computational and network environments; tools to monitor, distribute, and respond to user profiles at both the individual and collective level; adaptive, flexible individual interaction modes and media that are nevertheless consistent for a collaborative work; and a successful integrated solution — monitoring tool plus conference system, which can be effectively integrated in a computer-supported mobile activity.
