Adaptive Hypermedia constitutes a large portion of the Web nowadays. Issues of personalization and adaptation become crucial for the efficient handling of the information on the Internet. However, current hypertext reference architectures still lack appropriate modularization and expressiveness in order to meet all the challenges of Web dynamics. In the same time, standards and technologies resulting from the field of Semantic Web and Web Engineering offer flexible solutions, applicable also to the needs of Adaptive Hypermedia. In this paper we present our view on how the current development of knowledge engineering in the context of Semantic Web can contribute to the better
applicability, reusability and shareability of adaptive Web-based systems. We propose a modular Semantic Web-based Adaptive Hypermedia architecture as a service-oriented framework for adaptive Web-based systems. The main goal is to help the semantic enrichment of the information search and usage process and to allow for reasoning-based adaptive support of user activities. We illustrate our ideas in the context of the CHIME project  for Cultural Heritage in Interactive Multimedia Environments.
