Hi Riccardo,

I don't know if you've already found any more information related to the subject but take a look at this work [1] about an automatic traceability acquisition framework for user's actions upon resources, that our team wrote last year.

Even though this is still a WIP, all the information is captured through action sensors and a combination of two ontologies are used to hold the acquired information, one of which is specified in that work.

If you need any more help or further details drop me a line and I'll be glad to help.

Best regards,
