Complex information systems are increasingly required to support the flexible delivery of information to mobile devices. Studies of these devices in use have demonstrated that the information displayed to the user must be limited in size, focussed in content [1] and adaptable to the user’s needs [2]. Furthermore, the presented information is often dynamic-even changing continuously. Eventbased communication provides strong support for selecting relevant information for dynamic information delivery.
