In times where users need to process an ever increasing amount of information to perform more complex tasks in less time, the introduction of context in computer systems is becoming a necessity. However, building a context-sensitive system entails more work in comparison to traditional systems development: in the former, one must care for context-related tasks, such as the acquisition, processing, storage, manipulation and presentation of contextual elements. Context management proposes the separation of context related tasks from the application's business features. This paper presents a study on context management and discusses our proposal for a context manager, called CEManTIKA (Contextual Elements Management Through Incremental Knowledge Acquisition). A scenario is presented to illustrate its applicability.
