Abstract : This manuscript is written in total fulfillment of the requirements of the French degree Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches (HDR). HDR is an additional academic research accreditation after the Ph.D. degree. It is required, in the French academic system, to direct research strategies and develop an independent research activity (e.g. the official supervision of doctoral theses or the application for full professorship positions). An HDR manuscript is not supposed to be a self-contained or fully polished document like a Ph.D. manuscript. It is meant to overview the research activity and provide a clear research vision embodied by consistent contributions. In this manuscript, I summarized a part of my research developed during the last eight years and dedicated to the application of the "context-awareness" concept in systems, network architectures, protocols, and application services. I focus the major part of my contributions to the emerging and challenging topic of "e-health" in smart spaces. The common thread running through these contributions is the need for efficient, adaptive, and interoperable methods that consider the "context" in which services are used by humans with different profiles and needs. To tackle this objective, I adopted a multidisciplinary approach that allowed me to collaborate with different researchers, practitioners, and teams. I can not fail to recognize the first valuable support of the INRIA Rhône-Alpes Lab (Grenoble) and the W3C consortium at the beginning of my career during my Ph.D. and post-doctoral work. In addition, after my Ph.D. I have initiated different collaborations with the teams of the IRISA Lab (Dionysos, ADOPNET [ex-Atnet], TACOMA [ex-ACES], and OCIF) and other national and international Labs and companies such as LIUPPA (Anglet), LaBRI (Bordeaux), LIGM (Paris), Orange (Lannion), LSI (Algeria), LARATSI (Tunisia), and CRISTAL (Tunisia). All of these various collaborations, amongst others, have significantly contributed to the maturity of my research and the vision I defend in this manuscript.
