This paper introduces Sos, a location aware and contextsensitive accommodation finding service for mobile citizens who require help finding somewhere to stay when they arrive at their chosen destination. Specifically, Sos helps users to find and book hotel accommodation that is most appropriate to their current context. This context combines the users’ current location, personal preferences, hotel availability and agenda (e.g. business meeting, tour of city). Sos has been realized as an agent-based application that has been deployed using the Agents Channelling ContExt Sensitive Services (ACCESS) architecture, an open agentbased architecture that supports the development and deployment of multiple heterogeneous context-sensitive services.
