*** Second Call for Papers and Workshop Proposals ***

The 9th International and Interdisciplinary Conference on Modeling
and Using Context (CONTEXT 2015)

2–6 November 2015, Lordos Beach Hotel, Larnaca, Cyprus


The CONTEXT conferences are the world’s prime forum for presentation and
exchange of insights and cutting-edge results from the wide range of
disciplines concerned with context.

The main theme of CONTEXT 2015 is “Back to the roots”, focusing on the
importance of interdisciplinary cooperations and studies of the phenomenon.
Context, context modeling and context comprehension are central topics in
linguistics, philosophy, sociology, artificial intelligence, computer science,
art, law, organizational sciences, cognitive science, psychology, etc. and are
also essential for the effectiveness of modern, complex and distributed
software systems.

CONTEXT 2015 invites high-quality contributions from researchers and
practitioners in foundational studies, applications and evaluations of
modeling and use of context in all relevant fields. Areas of interest include,
but are not limited to, the role of context seen from different perspectives in:

• Agent-based architectures
• Ambient intelligence
• Cognition and perception by humans and artifacts
• Context-aware and situated systems
• Context modeling tools
• Communication and dialogue
• Data analysis and visualization
• Decision making
• Discourse comprehension and representation
• Engineering, e.g., in transport networks, industrial plants etc.
• Experimental philosophy and experimental pragmatics
• (Formal) models of context
• Human-computer interaction
• Knowledge representation
• Language acquisition and processing
• Learning, knowledge management and sharing
• Logic and reasoning
• Machine learning
• Ontology/ies
• Semantics and Pragmatics
• Smart and interactive spaces
• Understanding art, images, music and theatre


Accepted papers and poster abstracts will be published in a volume of the
Springer LNAI series.

Submission format

Submissions may be either full papers of up to 14 pages (in Springer LNCS
format) or poster abstracts of 4–6 pages. Full papers may be accepted as such
with oral presentation, or their authors may be invited to prepare a poster
abstract. Detailed formatting and submissions instructions will be provided.

Conference events

CONTEXT 2015 will include paper presentation sessions, a poster and
demonstration session, two days of workshops, and a doctoral consortium as
well as keynote talks and a panel discussion. Workshops and the doctoral
consortium will circulate separate calls for papers and participation, which
will also be available at the conference web site. All accepted authors will have
the option of presenting a system demonstration at the poster session.

Important dates

Full papers and posters:
• Submission deadline: June 1, 2015 
• Notification: July 13, 2015
• Final version: August 17, 2015


CONTEXT 2015 workshops will provide a platform for presenting novel and
emerging ideas in the use and the modelling of context in a less formal and
possibly more focused way than the conference itself. The format of each
workshop is to be determined by the organisers, but it is expected that
workshops will contain ample time for general discussion and engagement by
all participants - not just those presenting papers. Workshops that foster
collaboration, discussion, group problem-solving and community-building
initiatives are particularly encouraged. Researchers and practitioners from
all relevant fields are invited to submit proposals for review.

Proposals for workshops should contain:

1. A title and brief (2-page max) description of the workshop topic and
2. The desired workshop length (one day, two days or a half day) and an
estimate of the number of attendees.
3. The names, postal addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses of
the organisers, with one-paragraph statements of their research interests
and areas of expertise.
4. A list of potential members of the program committee, with an
indication of which members have already signed up.
5. A description of any shared tasks associated with the workshop.
6. A description of special requirements for technical needs.
7. An indication of whether posters are likely to be included in the
workshop program.

Please submit proposals in plain text in the body of an email to the
workshop organiser Samia Oussena (samia.oussena@uwl.ac.uk)
no later than March 20, 2015.

Notification of acceptance of workshop proposals will occur no later
than April 1, 2015.

Organisers of accepted workshops will be responsible for publicising and
running the workshop, including reviewing submissions and producing the
camera-ready workshop proceedings and a possibly printed version; the
conference website may link to online workshop proceedings. It is crucial
that organisers commit to all deadlines.

Workshop organisers cannot accept for publication papers that will be (or
have been) published elsewhere, although they are free to set their own
policies on simultaneous submission and review. At least one organiser of an
accepted workshop is expected attend and lead the workshop; any participant
and speaker must register for the conference. The CONTEXT 2015 organisers
will set the workshop fees, provide rooms, equipment, technical support,
coffee and lunch breaks.
