Every web user has several online profiles through which personal information is exchanged with many service providers. This exchange of personal information happens at a pace difficult to fully comprehend and manage without a global view and control with obvious consequences on data control, ownership and, of course, privacy. To tackle issues associated with current service-centric approaches, we propose a user-centric architecture where the interaction between a user and other agents is managed based on a global profile for the user, maintained in a profile management system and controlled by the user herself. In this PhD, we will investigate research issues and challenges in realizing such a system based on semantic technologies.
