As we gain access to increasing volumes of context data, we face the problem of moving this information from the sensors that produce it to the applications that consume it. Our approach to this problem uses gossiping, a probabilistic routing protocol, to disseminate context information throughout the environment. We present on-going work on evaluating the performance of different gossiping protocols for this purpose.
