## Abstract

Seamless information processing is gradually being integrated into daily human activities by creating a ubiquitous computing environment. Such information processing requires continuous access to the profiles of users so that the environment can act based on users' preferences. In this paper, we present a design of an experimental study of an agent-based approach to control resource consumption in a ubiquitous environment. A key idea is to explore whether it is feasible to use a mechanism that may help preserve inhabitants' privacy while at the same time provide a smart environment which resolves conflicts based on the preferences of the inhabitants. Experiments will be based on Bosthan, an agent-based simulator for smart spaces that is currently under development. Bosthan can simulate smart environments to investigate and evaluate different ubiquitous applications.
