This paper focuses on the methodology for analyses of user requirements and demand for specific services and applications in relation to personal networks (PNs). The paper has a strong user-centric approach to service and application development based on the widely accepted fact that future services and applications need to be developed with a much stronger focus on the end-users' needs and demands.
The paper is based on ongoing work in WP1 of the MAGNET project (My personal Adaptive Global NET)including contributions to determine, clarify and understand user requirements and the future demand for services and applications in a PN setting. This further includes discussion of service categorization, service description and human-value issues as personalization, security and privacy, billing and price and human-computer interaction paradigms.
