In this paper we describe an approach to providing adaptive support to applications that can be accessed through multiple interactive devices from various locations. It is based on a user model, which can update information about user preferences and knowledge at run-time. Such information is used to adapt the navigation, presentation and content of each user interface also taking into account users’ accesses through different interaction platforms.
