dc.description.abstract Pervasive systems present the need to interpret large quantities of data from many sources. Context models support developers working with such data by providing a shared representation of the environment on which to base this interpretation. This paper presents a set of requirements for a context model that addresses uncertainty, provenance, sensing and temporal properties of context. Based on these requirements, we describe Ontonym, a set of ontologies that represent core concepts in pervasive computing. We propose a framework for evaluating ontologies in the pervasive computing domain by combining recognised techniques from the literature, and present a preliminary evaluation of Ontonym using these criteria. en_US
