To prevent unwanted interruptions from cell phones, this paper proposes a system solution considering user’s unavailability. We first look at desirable characteristics of the system, then design a system architecture which takes as input user preferences, relevant context information and then produces as output if an incoming call should be allowed to ring. We also present a case study application that benefit by using the interruption management system. Finally, we discuss evaluations of the system by (i) evaluating the prototype and (ii) undertaking cognitive walkthroughs of the application.
