Fourteen years after the first Context conference in 1997 - and 60
years after Prior laid the foundation for the field -, the Seventh
International and Interdisciplinary Conference on Modeling and Using
Context (CONTEXT'11) sets out to extend foundational research on
context and to evaluate the status and consequences of context
research, as well as to address new questions for the field.

CONTEXT'11 will provide a forum for presenting and discussing
high-quality research and applications on context. The conference will
include paper, poster, and video presentations, system demonstrations,
workshops, and a doctoral consortium. The conference invites
researchers and practitioners to share insights and cutting-edge
results from the wide range of disciplines concerned with context,
including: the Cognitive Sciences (Linguistics, Psychology,
Philosophy, Computer Science, Neuroscience), the Social Sciences and
Organizational Sciences, and all application areas, including Medicine
and Law.

The main goal of the CONTEXT'11 workshops is to stimulate and
facilitate an active exchange on unique and interdisciplinary
applications, ideas, approaches, and methods about specific topics in
the general area of modeling and using context. The Workshops provide
a setting that fosters informal discussion and active engagement among
attendees. Researchers from all disciplines are invited to submit
proposals for workshops for review. Workshops on specific relevant
aspects of broader topics and newly evolving areas of Context are
particularly encouraged.

Areas of interest include but are not limited to the topics of the
main conference:

Analogy and Case-Based Reasoning. . . . . Knowledge Engineering and Ontologies
Autonomous Agents . . . . . . . . . . . . Language Understanding and Production
. and Agent-based Systems . . . . . . . . Learning
Cognitive Modeling. . . . . . . . . . . . Linguistics
Concepts and Categorization . . . . . . . Memory, Representation and Access
Context-Aware Services and Systems. . . . Multiagent Systems
Context-Recognition . . . . . . . . . . . . and Interagent Communication
Distributed Information Systems . . . . . Neuroscience
Formal Semantics and Pragmatics . . . . . Formal Ontology of Context Domains
Formal Theories of Context. . . . . . . . Organizational Theory and Design
Heterogeneous Information Integration . . Perception
Human Decision-Making . . . . . . . . . . Pervasive/Ubiquitous Computing
. and Decision Support Systems. . . . . . Philosophical Foundations of Context
Human-Centered Computing. . . . . . . . . Problem Solving and Planning
Human-Computer Interaction. . . . . . . . Psychological experiments
Information Management. . . . . . . . . . Reasoning
Intelligent Tutoring Systems. . . . . . . Relevance Computation
Intelligent User Interfaces . . . . . . . . and Relevance Theories
Intelligent/Semantic Web Systems. . . . . Sensor Networks and Sensing Systems
Knowledge Representation. . . . . . . . . Situated and Distributed Cognition

WORKSHOP FORMAT
Workshops in general will be one full day in duration, exceptionally
lasting half a day or two days. Format and content of each workshop
will largely be determined by each workshop's organizing committee.
Proposals for "mini-conference" style workshops are discouraged and
ample time should be allotted for general discussion. Workshop
organizers and attendees must register for the main CONTEXT'11
conference.

For presenting workshop summaries to all conference attendees, a time
slot of about 10 minutes each will be provided in coordination with
the main conference's regular sessions. These summaries should be
presented by at least one of the workshop's organizers.

SUBMISSION OF WORKSHOP PROPOSALS

Workshop proposals should include a main document and an appendix. The
main document should be no longer than two pages and include:

  * The proposed title of the workshop
  * The names of the workshop organizers
  * A brief introduction to the area
  * Expected results of the workshop
  * Any important references (max 5)

The appendix does not have a page limit, but should include the following:

  * A brief description of the technical issues the workshop addresses
  * A brief discussion of target audience and relevance to CONTEXT'11
  * A description of the intended workshop format and style
  * A preliminary workshop schedule
  * A description of paper review process
  * A list of potential program committee members with affiliations
  * An estimated number of attendees with justification
  * A list of related workshops with dates and location
  * Contact information, titles and affiliations of workshop
organizers. Workshop organizers should consist of three individuals
knowledgeable about the technical issues to be addressed and, ideally,
not being from the same institution

All proposals should be submitted by email as PDF documents (ideally
formatted to the LNCS style) to the CONTEXT'11 workshop chair at:

  context11-ws at teco.edu

Where workshop proposals are being proposed within a community where
an extended
abstract rather than full paper review process is typically required,
the workshop
proposal should make this case clear, and also make clear how a review
process will
guarantee high quality contributions.

Proposals will be reviewed by the program committee and prospective
organizers will be notified of their decision no later than April
20th, 2011.
