We present a society of personal information agents that work for a community of users and that are aware of the physical and social context of their users. We show how context-awareness is a feature that allows the agents to improve their performance when they work with limited resources in information spaces with a large amount of information. The use of context information allows the agents to focus their information search and, as a result of this, increase the quantity and quality of information delivered to the user. Moreover, we present an agent architecture with context-aware capabilities used in the COMRIS project  for assisting people attending to big conferences and fairs.The research on context awareness is also increasing and is encouraged by the new possibilities that offers the mobile communications .
