      Context-sensitive processing has a key role in many modern intelligent
      IT applications, with context-awareness and context-reasoning being
      essential not only for mobile, pervasive, and ubiquitous computing, but
      also for a wide range of other areas such as recommender systems,
      collaborative software, web engineering, information sharing, health
      care workflow and patient control, adaptive games, autonomic systems,
      and e-Learning solutions. Context awareness in Case-Based Reasoning
      (CBR) systems has also become a topic of increased research. In CBR,
      context serves as a major source for reasoning, decision-making, and
      adaptation. Consequently, achieving desired behaviors from CBR systems
      in these areas will depend on the ability to represent and manipulate
      information about a rich range of contextual factors. These factors may
      include not only physical characteristics of the task environment, but
      many other aspects such as the knowledge states (of both the application
      and user), and user beliefs and emotions. The representation and
      reasoning problem therein presents research challenges to which numerous
      methods and techniques derived from artificial intelligence and
      knowledge management (e.g., logical reasoning, object relationship
      models, ontologies, similarity measures, and intelligent retrieval
      mechanisms) are now being brought to bear. This workshop aims to bring
      together researchers and practitioners exploring issues and approaches
      for context-sensitive systems involving CBR to share their problems and
      techniques. It will examine mechanisms and techniques for structured
      storage of contextual information, effective ways to retrieve, reuse,
      and adapt it, as well as methods for enabling integration of context and
      application knowledge.

      This workshop will bring together industry and academic researchers and
      scientists to study, understand, and explore the handling of context in
      intelligent IT applications, with a particular focus on Case Based
      Reasoning. Besides contributed papers and invited talks, this workshop
      will offer organized and open spaces for targeted discussions. The
      workshop will explore the following topics along the intersection of
      context-awareness and case-based reasoning:
      * Context-awareness and machine learning
      * Context and the CBR cycle
      * Reasoning about context with cases
      * Improving recommender systems using context
      * Modelling context features for CBR
      * CBR applied to autonomics, pervasive computing, ambient
      intelligence, and ubiquitous computing
      * Real-world and sensed features in case-based reasoning
      * Real-time case-based reasoning
      * Evaluating context-aware CBR applications

      PROGRAM COMMITTEE (subject to additions)
      * Patrick Brezillon, University of Paris, France
      * Conor Hayes, Digital Enterprise Research Institute, Galway, Ireland
      * Anders Kofod-Petersen, Norwegian University of Science and
      Technology, Norway
      * Enric Plaza, IIIACSIC, Spain
      * Thomas Roth-Berghofer, University of Kaiserslautern, Germany
      * Thomas Sauer, rjm Business Solutions GmbH, Germany
      * Marielba Silva Zacarias, Universidade do Algarve, Portugal
      * Barbara Weber, University of Innsbruck, Austria

      We invite paper submissions including descriptions of works in progress,
      research contributions, and position statements. Submissions should
      attempt to address one or more of the aforementioned questions regarding
      the use of context-awareness and case based reasoning. Workshop papers
      should be submitted in Springer LNCS format, which is the format
      required for the final camera ready copy, with a maximum of 10 pages.
      Authors' instructions along with LaTeX and Word macro files are
      available on the web at http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html
