The possibility of using multimedia objects in modern applications has proven to be a bonus. We want to provide ways in which the user can interact with multimedia objects while it is been presented with features that go beyond the regular controls of a VCR. Furthermore, the presentation of the video can be modified by events happening in the surrounding environment. This technical report presents a system SCOTIMM - Structured ConText-Aware Interactive MultiMedia Applications - as a proposal to model the user actions from contextual information, in a way to ease its interaction with context-aware interactive applications like Interactive TV (ITV). The work also discusses how and which kind of contextual information could be used in one ITV environments that have an active network as the underlying infrastructure. The profile concept is presented and methods for using profiles in ITV programs are discussed.
