Context-sensitive processing plays a crucial role in many modern intelligent IT applications. Con- textual concerns affect reasoning, decision- making, and adaptation for a wide range of areas including not only mobile and ubiquitous com- puting, but also areas such as collaboration sup- port, information sharing, workflow, health care, personal digital assistants, adaptive games, and e-learning. Future advances will depend on the ability to represent and manipulate information about a rich range of contextual factors, includ- ing not only physical characteristics of the task environment, but other aspects such as knowl- edge states (of both the application and user), and emotions.
