Abstract: This paper proposes a model for intelligent navigation through multi-contextual information that could form electronic roads in the information society. This paper aims to address the problem of electronic information roads, define their notion and the technical form they can take as well as present the tools developed for implementing such a system. The main objective of the proposed model is to give the traveler the capability of exploring the information space in a natural way where the information offered will remain continuously interesting. The system offers links to information in a dynamic and adaptive way. This is achieved by employing intelligent navigation techniques, which combine user profiling and meta-data. Electronic roads emphasize the presentation of multi-contextual information, i.e., information that is semantically related but of different nature at different locations and time. An electronic road is the user’s navigation path through a series of information units. Information units are the building blocks of the available cultural information content.
