Smart environments offer a vision of unobtrusive interaction with our surroundings, interpreting and anticipating our needs. One key aspect for making environments smart is the ability to recognize the current context. However, like any human space, smart environments are subject to changes and mutations of their purposes and their composition as people shape their living places according to their needs. In this paper we present an approach for recognizing context situations in smart environments that addresses this challenge. We propose a formalism for describing and sharing context states (or situations) and an architecture for gradually introducing contextual knowledge to an environment, where the current context is determined on sensing people's usage of devices and sound analysis.
