CONTEXT-99
 2nd INTERNATIONAL AND INTERDISCIPLINARY CONFERENCE ON
 MODELING AND USING CONTEXT
 Trento, Italy, September 9-11, 1999. 

 http://www.cs.unitn.it/CONTEXT-99/ 

The importance of the notion of context is widely acknowledged, as
evidenced by the numerous workshops, symposia and seminars on context
held in the last few years. The Second International and
Interdisciplinary Conference on Modeling and Using Context aims at
providing a high quality forum for discussion on context among
researchers active in Artificial Intelligence, Cognitive Science,
Computer Science, Linguistics, Philosophy, and Psychology.

TOPICS OF INTEREST
 
The following topics, in which contexts can be studied and/or applied,
are meant to be suggestive of the scope of the the conference:

 Animated Characters Cognitive Modeling
 Commonsense Reasoning Communication 
 Constraint-Based Reasoning Databases and Active Databases
 Data Mining Decision Support Systems
 Diagnostic Reasoning Dynamics of Context
 Formal Theories of Context Propositional Attitudes
 Heterogeneous Information Integration Information Management
 Intelligent Tutoring Systems Knowledge Engineering
 Knowledge Representation Machine Learning
 Multi-Agent Systems Natural Language Processing
 Natural Language Semantics Pattern Recognition
 Philosophical Foundations Pragmatics
 Temporal Reasoning Spatial Reasoning

INTERDISCIPLINARY CHARACTER

CONTEXT'99 is meant to provide an interdisciplinary forum. All
submissions, in addition to being evaluated for their technical and
theoretical merit, will be evaluated for their ability to be
accessible to an interdisciplinary community. Works that transcend
their disciplinary boundaries are encouraged.

SUBMISSION OF PAPERS

Participants will be selected on the basis of submitted papers (10
single-spaced A4 pages maximum) by three referees at least. Papers
must include in the first page: title, author's name(s), affiliation,
complete mailing address, phone number, fax number, e-mail address, an
abstract of 300 words maximum, and up to five keywords. Electronic
submission (compressed/zipped/gzipped standard PostScript file under
the name first-author.ps) is strongly encouraged; alternatively,
authors may send five hardcopies of the paper via surface mail.
Submitted papers should arrive to the Conference Chair no later than
March 30, 1999.
