Interruption management, Mobile notifications, Semantic location labelling


We analyse data from a longitudinal study of 44participants, including notification handling, device state and location information. We demonstrate that it is possible to semantically label a user’s location based on their notification handling behaviour, even when location coordinates are obfuscated so as not to precisely match known venue lo- cations. Privacy-preserving semantic labelling of a user’s location can be useful for the contextually-relevant handling of interruptions and service delivery on mobile device
