Abstract: Currently, with the rise of ubiquitous computing, one is growing interest in using the user context, for adapting applications and their contents to users’ needs and activities in real time, in different fields (tourism, smart homes, and hospitals). Many projects dealing with the definition and context models and management platforms have emerged. In the GeoEduc3D project, exploiting the context to improve the immersive and interactive aspects of interactive educational games is to be explored. This particular application framework (serious games, augmented reality, smart phones) is completely different and brings the issue of interoperability, which was not really addressed in previous work. Therefore, our work aims to design and implement a solution dedicated to the acquisition and dissemination of spatial context in a multi-players environment on and for smart phones. For this purpose, we first propose a definition and modeling of spatial context. Then we define the architecture of a service-oriented system for managing that information. To test our approach, a Web service prototype was developed according to three main functions: retrieving information from smart phones, storing data in the database and query flexible synchronous or asynchronous data. This research opens the way for the design and development of context-aware serious games applications for any type of smart phone, in a multiplayer environment.
