September 2, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Information Technology Newsweekly -- From Washington, D.C., VerticalNews journalists report that a patent application by the inventors Sanaullah, Abu Shaher (Austin, TX); Clardy, James Webster (Austin, TX); Cox, Claude Lano (Austin, TX); Quinn, William B. (Austin, TX); Ancona, Rocco (Austin, TX); Stedman, Roy W. (Austin, TX), filed on February 11, 2013, was made available online on August 21, 2014.

No assignee for this patent application has been made.

News editors obtained the following quote from the background information supplied by the inventors: "As the value and use of information continues to increase, individuals and businesses seek additional ways to process and store information. One option available to users is information handling systems ('information handling systems'). An information handling system generally processes, compiles, stores, and/or communicates information or data for business, personal, or other purposes thereby allowing users to take advantage of the value of the information. Because technology and information handling needs and requirements vary between different users or applications, information handling systems may also vary regarding what information is handled, how the information is handled, how much information is processed, stored, or communicated, and how quickly and efficiently the information may be processed, stored, or communicated. The variations in information handling systems allow for information handling systems to be general or configured for a specific user or specific use such as financial transaction processing, airline reservations, enterprise data storage, or global communications. In addition, information handling systems may include a variety of hardware and software components that may be configured to process, store, and communicate information and may include one or more computer systems, data storage systems, and networking systems.

"As the ubiquity of information handling systems increases, so does the interaction and dependence on the activities of one user impact the activities of other users. However, traditional barriers remain for maintaining the integrity of realtime collaboration. One or more individuals may have roadblocks to participation that need to be managed."

As a supplement to the background information on this patent application, VerticalNews correspondents also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent application: "In accordance with certain embodiments of the present disclosure, systems and methods for realtime identification of a context mismatch are disclosed. The systems and methods may include determining a context mismatch based at least on an environmental context and a personal context, wherein the environmental context and the personal context are associated with a first user of the event, generating a plurality of event management options for managing the context mismatch, presenting the plurality of event management options to the user, and communicating a chosen option to a plurality of users of the event, the chosen option being one of the plurality of event management options.


"For a more complete understanding of the present invention and its advantages, reference is now made to the following description, taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawings, in which:

"FIG. 1 illustrates an example system 100 for realtime and/or near-realtime identification of a context mismatch associated with a trigger event, in accordance with certain embodiments of the present disclosure; and

"FIG. 2 illustrates a flowchart of an example method 200 for realtime and/or near-realtime identification of a context mismatch, in accordance with certain embodiments of the present disclosure."
