Context-aware systems adapt their functionality and behavior to the user and his or her situation. To do so, they need context information about the userís environment, e.g., about different kinds of real world objects. Many systems and data models are available for the management of context information. An often neglected but important part of context is the state and context of the applications that users are currently executing. This paper presents the benefits of using the context of workflow-based applications in the area of human task management. We show what kind of new task clients for mobile users are enabled by a context model for business process management and present an implementation of the system.
