The Seventh International and Interdisciplinary Conference on Modeling and
Using Context

Call for Workshop Proposals
Deadline: April 10, 2011

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

Analogy and Case-Based Reasoning; Knowledge Engineering and
Ontologies; Language Understanding and Production; Autonomous Agents
and Agent-based Systems; Learning; Cognitive Modeling; Linguistics;
Concepts and Categorization; Memory, Representation and Access;
Context-Aware Services and Systems; Context-Recognition; Multiagent
Systems 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;
Pervasive/Ubiquitous Computing; Human Decision-Making 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 and Relevance Theories;
Intelligent User Interfaces; 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

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


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.
