This document describes the Gloss software currently implemented. The description of the Gloss demonstrator for multi-surface interaction can be found in D17. The ongoing integration activity for the work described in D17and D8 constitutes our development of infrastructure for a first smart space. In this report, the focus is on infrastructure to support the implementation of location aware services. A local architecture provides a framework for constructing Gloss applications, termed assemblies, that run on individual physical nodes. A global architecture defines an overlay network for linking individual assemblies. Both local and global architectures are under active development.
