The expansion of wireless communication networks based on the development of diverse device technologies can promote an environment in which smart phones, tablet PCs, cars can be collaboratively communicated with each other anytime and anywhere. To meet such future expectations, communication is growing in order to enhance various possible interactions between smart devices. In the future, we may use truly immersive ways, which may be virtually indistinguishable from face-to-face meetings, to communicate with other people at a distance [1]. Whilst we develop communication technologies toward that vision, the interface between users and communication devices/systems needs to be advanced. In this paper, we discuss human-communication from the perspective of computers that can proactively learn and know about users. In other words, we want computers of communication system and devices that are well aware of users [2]. Therefore, we propose new models and systematic ways to design and implement the user- and situation-aware communication [3].
