Abstract

E-books are more and more spreading among readers, who take advantage from the capability of reading them on different devices and of storing a whole library of books in a light and portable device. What is still missing is a technology that enables not only the adaptation to the exploited device, but also to the context in which the books are read. The experience of the users can be more immersive if the flow of the book content can be modified by the reading device depending on different aspects related to the moment and place of reading. To overcome this limit, we have developed Inbooki, a system for writing and reading e-books that can take into consideration the context in which they are read and can adapt to it, making the experience of the readers more immersive in the story told by the book. The proposed model of the context take into consideration the information from the device sensors, the user profile, and the user choices.
