Abstract Interactive systems have been among the prevailing computing paradigms of recent years. After a lot of research in this field, implicit human computer in­teraction is growing. It takes the user context into account when creating new applications for ambient intelligence. Context and context-awareness are central issues to ambient intelligence. The use of context information in interactive systems offers new possibilities to adapt applications and systems to the current situation "on-the-fly". In this thesis, we present the management system of a university smart class­room based on semantic web technologies. This work constitutes a real-time, context-aware system, applied in a smart classroom domain, which aims to assist its users after recognizing occurring activities. We have designed and developed several ontologies that capture and formally describe user profiles, context infor­mation and learning material information. Rule-based reasoning is applied for the elaboration of the stored knowledge and an existing recognition system undertakes to identify the current activity by exploiting the reasoning result. After the activity recognition, rules are responsible for the assistance of the activity. We describe an overview of our system as well as typical usage scenarios to indicate how our system would react in these situations. Depending on the current activity the system will provide different type of assistance to its users. Assistance consists of modifying the status of the devices that are located in the classroom or supplying the students with learning material. A live demonstration of our system with real users into a smart space is described in the end of this thesis.
