    Context-aware applications are emerging on a daily basis and location information proves to be one of the key components in this domain. This stems from the fact that location information enables and facilitates reasoning about what users are doing (user's behavioural patterns) and what users are interested in. Availability of campus-wide WLAN infrastructure at University of Twente (UT) and the fact that SVGOpen 2005 was scheduled to be held at UT, were two strong driving forces towards building a location-aware conference guide. In this paper, a privacy-sensitive, location-aware service architecture is presented, which utilizes a calibration-free localization technique. The presented architecture uses existing WLAN infrastructure for cost efficiency, and uniquely incorporates the location information into Jini service discovery platform. Vector graphics provide better support for highly dynamic interface. Among all available vector formats, SVG proves to be a better choice to design the dynamic user interface and hence it was used in our implementation.
