Abstract: This paper describes a general architecture of a domain independent system for building and maintaining ling term models of individual users..The user modeling system is intended Io provide a well defined set of services for an application system which is interacting with various users and has a need to build and maintain models of them. As the application system interacts with a user, it can acquire knowledge of him and pass that knowledge on 1o the user model maintenance system for incorporation. We describe a prototype general user modeling system (hereafter called GUMSI) which we have implemented in Prolog. This system satisfies some of 'the " desirable characteristics we discuss.
