The focus of this work is developing processes to enable user-specified policies to help roaming users manage their interaction with a pervasive computing environment. A user-specified policy is a policy, defined by the user, which represents how she would prefer the pervasive computing environment to behave towards her. Towards realising such policies, two related research areas have to be enhanced. They are dynamic policy conflict detection and resolution and inter-domain policy negotiation. This report discusses the state of the art in related areas, and details the work carried out towards meeting the research objectives.
