—Context-aware systems adapt their functionality
and behavior to the user and his or her situation. To do so, they
need context information about the user’s environment, e.g.,
about different kinds of real world objects. Many systems and
data models are available for the management of context
information. An often neglected but important part of context is
the state and context of the applications that users are currently
executing. This paper presents the benefits of using the context
of workflow-based applications in the area of human task
management. We show what kind of new task clients for mobile
users are enabled by a context model for business process
management and present an implementation of the system.
