Abstract

We present a software tool, called ALIMOS, for accessing digital music libraries in mobile telecommunication services. The tool provides a semi-automatic interface that allows users to interact with their digital music library in a flexible way based on a combination of content and semantic information. The system architecture is based on a multi-tier application with a front-end and a back-end level. ALIMOS is fully implemented and relevant evaluation results are given.
