This paper presents a proposal for a context-aware framework. The framework is organized according to a general purpose architecture, centred around an ontological context representation. The ontology provides the vocabulary upon which software agents interoperate and perform rule-based reasoning, in order to determine the system response to context changes. The system components and their coordinated operations are described by providing a simple example of concrete application in a home-care scenario.
