The Global Public Inclusive Infrastructure (GPII) is an international collaboration to create tools, infrastructure, and resources that can automatically adapt user interfaces to suit an individual's needs and preferences. With the GPII, users can store their preferences securely in the cloud, taking them with them as they move to different platforms and devices. As part of the Cloud4all Project, the authors have designed and developed an architecture and reference implementation to support the ambitious cross-platform technical and user experience requirements of the GPII. This architecture is intended to support the long-term growth, extensibility, and sustainability of the GPII's personalization system. In this paper we describe the architecture and organizing principles of the GPII/Cloud4All framework, its variety of expected deployment and interaction styles, and how it expects to meet future technical challenges and age gracefully.
