This article summarizes research on several interrelated general issues that can arise in the design and development of user modeling systems: the learning and subsequent adaptation of general user models on the basis of empirical data; the modeling of temporally variable properties of users, in particular time pressure and cognitive load; and the user-adaptive planning of interactions under uncertainty. The methods and results are integrated and illustrated with a prototype of a mobile assistance system for travelers in an airport.
