There is a demand for efforts that deal with the challenges associated to the complex and time-consuming task of developing context-aware applications. These challenges include context modeling, reuse and reasoning, and software infrastructures intended to context management. This paper presents a service infrastructure for the management of semantic context called Semantic Context Kernel. The novelty is a set of semantic services that can be personalized according to context-aware applications’ requirements so as to support the prototyping of such applications. The Semantic Context Kernel has been built upon an ontological context model, which provides Semantic Web abstractions to foster context reuse and reasoning.
