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 motto of the CONTEXT'11 special track "Commercialising Context" was
chosen to reflect both the fact that context research has found numerous
successful applications in recent years and the fact that context itself
has become a product that can be sold. Context-aware services can support
their users unobtrusively and offer promising revenues. However, when
context is no longer something private but processed and shared through
the web, profound questions are raised about privacy and the general
consequences of the technology.
Yet, the new context-aware services can also be a scientific tool for
context-research itself. Context-aware services offer new ways for
studying social context and its interaction with other types of context
on a sociologically significant scale. For linguistic studies,
context-aware mobile phones and chat programs, for instance, can be a
tool to automatically obtain context-annotated dialogues, with which
the influence of context on meaning can be empirically assessed.
Areas of interest include but are not limited to perspectives on context from:
Analogy and Case-Based Reasoning. . . . Knowledge Engineering and Ontologies
Autonomous Agents. . . . . . . . . . . .Language Understanding and Production
. and Agent-based Systems. . . . . . . .Learning
Cognitive Modeling. . . . . . . . . . . Linguistics

CONTEXT'11 will include paper presentation sessions, a poster and
demonstration session, two days of workshops, and a doctoral consortium
as well as keynote talks and a panel discussion. Workshops and the
doctoral consortium will circulate separate calls for papers and
participation, which will also be available at the conference web site.
ACCEPTANCE CRITERIA AND SUBMISSION CATEGORIES
CONTEXT welcomes original, high-quality research contributions that
advance the state of the art in their field. Because CONTEXT'11 will
be an interdisciplinary forum, all submissions will be evaluated not
only for their technical merit but also for their accessibility to
an interdisciplinary audience. Works that transcend disciplinary
boundaries are especially encouraged.
Submissions may be for full papers (14 pages in Springer LNCS format),
poster abstracts, videos with a video abstract, or demonstration
abstracts. Full papers will be accepted either for oral presentation
or for presentation at a poster session. All accepted full paper
submissions will be published in the proceedings which appear as a
volume of Springer Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence. Accepted
posters and demonstrations will be presented at the poster session.
Videos will be presented as part of the conference program. The
associated abstracts will be published in a brochure distributed to
