      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

      CONFERENCE EVENTS
      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
      attendees.
