Context-aware Web Engineering: Modeling and Applications

Kaltz, W.-J., Ziegler, J., and Lohmann, S. (2005). RIA - Revue d’Intelligence Artificielle, Special Issue on Applying Context-Management, 19(3), 439–458.


This article presents an approach to Web Engineering which aims to account for context-awareness in a comprehensive and integrated fashion, thus enabling an enhanced adaptation of the application to the end-user. A conceptual model, permitting the combination of a domain ontology with context-relevant parameters and a degree of relevance, is presented. Subsequently, the use of such a model in a Web Engineering process is discussed, including appropriate modeling software, and requirements for a runtime system.
