Abstract


This paper presents an ontology-based application for mobile devices which is responsible for supporting groups of people with the management of their shared tasks. The ontology stores the domain knowledge about collaborative tasks, which is used to support task recognition and relocation. Such knowledge is used by a multi-agent system that consists of a group of agents representing each person in the group. The agents use plan recognition techniques to monitor the execution of tasks according to the schedules and negotiate task allocation when needed. Our techniques have been applied in a healthcare scenario which consists of a family group that takes care of an elderly person.
