Present paper focuses on context awareness in service provisioning and proposes a framework that enables efficient management of contextual profiles. Furthermore, a more flexible and innovative model for user profiling is introduced. The innovation is based on the enrichment of common user profiling architectures to include location and other contextual attributes, so that enhanced adaptability and personalization can be achieved. For each context instance an associated User Profile instance is created and hence, service provisioning is adapted to the User Profile instance that better apply to the current context. The generic model, the structure and the content of that Context-sensitive User Profile, along with some related implementation issues, are discussed.
