context awareness; ubiquitous computing

This Position Paper provides a description of our ongoing work with the Paris fire-fighter brigade. Based on our pragmatic experience in designing and developing ubiquitous computing solutions for a domain that poses complex physical and cognitive restrictions, we believe that there is a need for a post-positivistic perspective on context aware systems. Here we came up with the design concept of building diagnosis artefacts based on the idea of providing context as a resource. In relation to this concept, our research interest lies in understanding the mechanics of emergence of the dialectic process between available information and interpretation practices.
