<p>Smart environments have rapidly emerged as an exciting new paradigm for providing computing and communication services in a far more convenient, seamless, and enjoyable way. Users will be able to easily, conveniently, and remotely access and control all information and appliances in their environment, using various services resulting from the integrated cooperation of possibly heterogeneous communication-enabled objects. However, realizing the services' advantages will require appropriate middleware support to facilitate context-dependent intelligent agents, thus leveraging cost-effective design and implementation of smart-environment applications. This special issue focuses on recent advances in context-aware middleware, frameworks, and intelligent agents for smart environments.</p>
