Applications in our modern, pervasive computing environments have to adapt themselves or their context in order to cope with changes. In dynamic multi-user systems with shared resources and interactive applications, such adaptations cannot be scripted in advance. Instead, they have to be calculated as well as coordinated at runtime. However, the necessary calculations quickly exceed the complexity that can be handled in real-time. The concept of proactive adaptation allows to change applications and/or context based on prediction of context and user behavior. However, it also requires a constant effort of monitoring and planning, which is not
sensible for applications running on mobile devices. Hence, applications need suitable system support to build on.
