As a variety of pervasive environments emerge, context-aware applications shall have to interact well with each of them. In this position paper, we propose extensions to the Strathclyde Context Infrastructure that gives context-aware applications the potential to adapt to such environments transparently. We present a vision of a context discovery technique based on automated semantic reasoning about context information and services. The technique will offer higher levels of scalability and of interoperability with different context environments that cannot be achieved with current methods.
