The context-awareness management is a challenging task in a distributed collaborative environment. This management implies the monitoring of the context information of collaborative users while adapting the responses of their requests according to their context. In this work, we distribute the context adaptation task among several entities by adopting the mobile agent paradigm. This leads to a distributed solution for context management. The context adaptation is tackled by using a decision tree-based approach. A context-aware selection algorithm is given to select the appropriate terminal where the context-awareness tasks will be made. An e-health application is used through the paper to illustrate the suggested approach.
