This paper presents an approach towards an open context infrastructure that allows to sharing resources between developers and applications, thus reducing development costs and enabling business models for specialized context service providers. The main focus of this paper is to identify aspects and challenges that emerge from the openness and application independence of such an infrastructure. In an attempt to address and meet some of these challenges, the aspect of modeling contexts is examined in detail within this paper. The result is the definition of application specific and infrastructure context models and the description ho w these can be applied.
