Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing is about interconnected computing resources embedded in our daily lives and providing contextual services to users. The real influence between user behavior and ubiquitous communication protocols performance and operation needs to be taken into account at the protocol design stage. Therefore, we provide a generic multi-modeling approach that allows us to couple a user behavior model with a network model. To allow both assessment and benchmarking of ubiquitous solutions, we define formal reference scenarios based on the selection of a set of environmental conditions (contexts). We illustrate the use of the framework through its application to the study of mutual influences of mobility models and ad hoc network protocols.
