The exponential increase of adaptive systems and the difficulty of identifying the relevant dimensions for the construction of user models, are the bases of the choice of building a framework for user modelling. The goal is that of defining a method for identifying such dimensions and moreover creating a taxonomy of goals, features and dimension for different application domains.
