Context-Awareness, Mobile contact lists, Mobile information retrieval


Our work discusses a mobile contact retrieval interface which attempts to contextually predict the contacts a user is likely to need access to, in order to facilitate the retrieval process. We compare our prototype implementation with retrieval from traditional applications (contact list and call log) in a preliminary lab experiment and discuss our findings from user behaviour. We conclude with suggestions on how to improve this interface in order to further enhance the retrieval process.
