The main difference between traditional HCI design and context-aware design is how each contends with context; any interaction model for the latter must address the question of what context is. Unlike desktop applications, the interactive behavior of context-aware applications depends on the physical and logical context in which the interaction occurs. A new architecture derived from the Model-View-Controller paradigm models such context in the frontend, helping users better understand application behavior.
