Adaptive Hypermedia Systems (AHS) have long been mostly domain- or application-specific systems. Existing reference models provide domain-independent high-level descriptions of AHS. They focus on abstract data structures and only briefly describe the adaptation process in a generic way. In this paper we consider the process aspects of AHS from the very first classical user modelling-adaptation loop to a generic detailed flowchart of the adaptation in AHS.We introduce a Generic Adaptation Process (GAP) and by aligning it with a layered (data-oriented) AHS architecture we show that it can serve as the process part of a new reference model for AHS.
