Abstract


This paper presents an approach for the semantic representation of user profiles through an ontology conducted in the scope of the Cloud4all project. Employing the cloud computing paradigm, Cloud4allaims torealize a global public inclusive infrastructure that will reinforce accessibility of information and communication technologies(ICT). The proposed ontology aims to provide the required representation formalism to sufficiently express personal user needs and preferences based on domain knowledge and the association of interaction-related concepts in order to support automatic reasoning mechanisms for user profile management.
