Abstract: We describe a shared ontology called SOUPA -- Standard Ontology for Ubiquitous and Pervasive Applications. SOUPA is designed to model and support pervasive computing applications. This ontology is expressed using the Web Ontology Language OWL and includes modular component vocabularies to represent intelligent agents with associated beliefs, desires, and intentions, time, space, actions and events, user profiles, actions, and policies for security and privacy. We discuss how SOUPA can be extended and used to support the applications of CoBrA, a broker-centric agent architecture for building smart meeting rooms, and MoGATU, a peer-to-peer pervasive data management system.
