Currently, the concept of context-awareness and context-adaptation has attracted particular attention in the area of mobile communication. This is largely due to the fact that the obligatory requirement of the devices’ portability leads to certain constraints of mobile devices. Small-sized screens, low data processing capacity, and inconvenient ways of navigation and data entry are some examples for these constraints. To overcome these limitations is particularly relevant in the area of multimedia Internet content and therefore requires the communication to be as efficient as possible. One possible option to reduce the resulting problem of presentation and selection of content on mobile devices is to automatically offer the user only those contents relevant for the concrete situation of the service request. Such services require that the computer can sense the particular situation of the service request and autonomously respond with appropriate actions.
