Context-aware computing is a well-established approach for customizing event-based reasoning to specific business or other operational situations. In this position paper we present an approach to enrich the expressive power of context-based system by including modalities, supporting hybrid reasoning. Also, our approach supports trust-based intelligent generation of sensor events.
