There is a clear trend towards making multimedia applications context-aware so as to customize them by taking into account any collection of information which may be relevant, such as e.g. user location. However, current multimedia services are dominated by IMS, which is seen as a service platform that uses the SIP protocol to access all services that the Internet can provide. In this paper, we describe the Daidalos approach on making IMS based multi-media services context-aware. We also demonstrate, how generic sensor networks can be integrated into the context management system of our platform thus enabling sensor network detected events to influence behavior of context-aware multimedia applications.
