We will present an agent-based architecture, Genie of the Net, for context-aware systems that are used as components of an intelligent environment and manage services on behalf of the user. We will also discuss the need for knowledge representations. Furthermore, we will present information management and event scheduling as our primary application area and discuss the application we are working on: the Home Notice Board, which presents information and schedules events for family members. We will discuss the first prototype, the Family Calendar, that we have already completed and demonstrated. For this prototype, we have implemented a general agent platform and agents specialized in scheduling events. Furthermore, we will present an extension to the first prototype, Neon Digipainting. This prototype will be a combined changing art work and information channel, which will enhance communication between family members.
