Abstract

We introduce the general user model ontology Gumo for the uniform interpretation of distributed user models in intelligent semantic web enriched environments. We discuss design decisions, show the relation to the user model markup language UserML and present the integration of ubiquitous applications with the u2m.org user model service.
