Conference: Flexible Query Answering Systems, 8th International Conference, FQAS 2009, Roskilde, Denmark, October 26-28, 2009. Proceedings


    In computer based internet services, queries are usually submitted in a context. Either the contexts are created, or are assumed
    - e.g., a purchase order, or an airline reservation. Unfortunately, there is little theoretical foundation for contexts, and
    systems usually do not use them formally. In this paper, we propose a model for context representation in the direction of
    aspect oriented programming and object-oriented systems, and show that contexts can be used to process queries better. We
    outline a brief model that we are pursuing based on the idea of constraint inheritance with exceptions in a query tree.
