The Fourth International and Interdisciplinary Conference on Modeling
and Using Context, will provide a high-quality forum for discussions
about context among researchers active in artificial intelligence and
other areas of computer science, cognitive science, linguistics, the
organizational sciences, philosophy, and psychology.
Context affects a wide range of activities in humans and animals as
well as in artificial agents and other computer programs. The
importance of context is widely acknowledged, and "context" has become
an area of study in its own right, as evidenced by the numerous
workshops, symposia, seminars, and conferences held recently. CONTEXT,
the oldest conference series focusing on context, is unique due to its
strong emphasis on interdisciplinary research. Previous CONTEXT
conferences have been held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (CONTEXT'97),
Trento, Italy (CONTEXT'99), and Dundee, Scotland (CONTEXT'01). Each of
these brought together researchers in many disparate fields to discuss
and report on research on context-related topics.

The proceedings of CONTEXT'03 will be published in a Lecture Notes
series ( of Springer-Verlag, as were
those of previous CONTEXT conferences.


To guide potential submissions, a representative sampling of topics of
interest for CONTEXT'03 are as follows (in alphabetical order). This
is not an exhaustive list, and other contributions are welcome,
although all submissions must have a focus on context.

Analogy and Case-based Reasoning Autonomous Agents and
					Agent-based Systems
 Cognitive Modeling Commonsense Reasoning
 Context Issues in Databases 	 Context-aware Applications
 Contextual Effects on Language Contextual Effects on
 Understanding and Production Decision-making, and
 Decision Support and Expert Systems Distributed Information Systems
 Formal Theories of Context Heterogeneous Information
 Human-Computer Interaction Information Management
 Intelligent Tutoring Systems Intelligent/Semantic Web Systems
 Interagent Communication Knowledge Engineering and
 Knowledge Representation Machine Learning
 Multiagent Systems Natural Language Processing
 Neuroscience and Context Organizational Theory and Design
 Philosophical Foundations


Since CONTEXT'03 will be an interdisciplinary forum, all submissions,
in addition to being evaluated for their technical merit, will be
evaluated for their accessibility to an interdisciplinary
audience. Works that transcend disciplinary boundaries are especially
encouraged. Papers will be accepted either for oral presentation or
for presentation at a poster session.

Each submission will be evaluated by three referees. Complete
formatting requirements and detailed instructions for authors can be
found on the conference Web page. Note that papers cannot be longer
than 14 pages. Papers must be submitted electronically--no hardcopy
submissions will be accepted without prior approval from the Program
Co-Chairs well in advance of the submission deadline. LaTeX and Word
templates are available at the conference Web page. Papers must be in
PDF format. See the conference Web page for instructions on
converting to this format from Word, LaTeX, etc.

Submitted papers should be received by the Program Co-Chairs no later
than January 6, 2003. The conference Web page contains instructions
for submitting papers electronically.

The primary aim of GLiP meetings is to bring together (i) Polish
generative linguists, (ii) generative linguists working in Poland, as
well as (iii) generative linguists working on Polish.

We invite abstracts on any aspect of generative syntax and/or
morphology in any generative approach: P&P (Minimalism, GB), HPSG,
LFG, OT, etc. Talks will be organized around major syntactic topics,
depending on the content of the submissions.

The format of the conference is 30 min for presentation + 15 min

In cases when there is no need to use special (e.g., phonetic) fonts,
we strongly encourage PLAIN TEXT submissions. If data involving
diacritics are quoted, please omit the diacritics unless they are
essential for the proper interpretation of the proposal -- in such
cases, use ASCII characters to mark them in some consistent way.

Should the electronic version of the abstract require special fonts,
please attach them as well. (We strongly discourage this practice
though, and reserve the right to ask for a resubmission in a different
