Context-aware systems that rely on mobile devices for user interaction must address the low bandwidth of both communications and more importantly the user's limited attention, which will typically be split between several competing tasks. Content delivery in such systems must be adapted closely to users' evolving situations and shifting priorities, in a way that cannot be accomplished using static filtering determined a priori. We propose a more dynamic context-driven approach to content delivery, that integrates information from a wide range of sources. We demonstrate our approach on a system for adaptive message prioritisation and forwarding.
