Uses of contextual information to support online tasks

Heath, Thomas; Motta, Enrico and Dzbor, Martin (2005). Uses of contextual information to support online tasks. In: 1st AKT Doctoral Symposium, 14-16 Jun 2005, Milton Keynes, UK.



In this paper we make a case for the role of user context information in supporting task performance online, examine previous attempts at representing and making use of user context factors, and highlight the limitations of existing tools and services. We then suggest how the emergent Semantic Web might be able to better facilitate the capture of knowledge regarding user context, and provide the means for its reuse in supporting the performance of tasks online.
