Modeling context is a key factor for enabling context-aware systems to be responsive to users' needs and consequently for making computing "invisible". A context model, which is a product of context modeling, provides a systematic way of identifying and representing knowledge about users' environment in context-aware architecture. Through this knowledge, and its sensing and reasoning capabilities, a context-aware architecture is able to determine what is going on in the environment and share

In particular, the article explains development of a Knowledge-intensive Context Model (KiCM). KiCM extends theory-based context models by including knowledge of users' computers and their computer-related activities. Categories of context-aware systems Schilit et al. [3] categorize context-aware systems based on their ability to provide information or execute computing services. Similarly, Dey and Abowd [4] categorize these systems by their ability
