Abstract. We describe the CAWE framework for the management of context-
aware Web Service-based workflow systems. The framework is based on a hier-
archical workflow representation supporting a synthetic and extensible specifica-
tion of context-sensitive workflows, which can be executed by standard workflow
engines. We have exploited the CAWE framework to develop a prototype appli-
cation handling a medical guideline specifying the activities to be performed in
order to monitor patients treated with blood thinners.

1 Introduction
We present the CAWE (Context-Aware Workflow Execution) framework for the devel-
opment of context-aware applications based on Web Service technologies, which adapt
to the user features and the execution context. In order to support a flexible adaptation
of the business logic, we have adopted a workflow-based approach, which enables the
declarative specification of such logic. The CAWE framework is based on a hierarchical
