      International Workshop on Case-based Reasoning and Context Awareness

      ECCBR 2006 Oludeniz / Fethiye, Turkey, 5th Sep 2006

      Submission deadline: May 26, 2006

      Workshop website: http://cacoa2006.workshop.hm/

      ----- Objectives -----
      Context-sensitive processing has a key role in many modern
      intelligent IT applications, including mobile and ubiquitous
      computing, collaborative software, web engineering, personal
      digital assistants, information sharing, health care workflow
      and patient control, adaptive games, and e-Learning solutions.
      As such, context awareness in case-based reasoning (CBR) systems
      is a topic of increased research.

      In these areas, 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, such as environmental
      characteristics, knowledge states, emotions, etc. This
      representation and reasoning problem 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.

      ----- Workshop Goals -----
      The major goal of the workshop is to bring researchers,
      scientists from both industry and academics, and representatives
      from different communities together to study, understand, and
      explore the handling of context in IT applications, in
      particular, with a focus on CBR, i.e., storing, comparing,
      reusing and adapting previously stored contextual knowledge. As
      we are interested understanding and discussing new trends,
      ideas, and technology, we encourage also submissions of work in

      Besides contributed papers and invited talks, this workshop will
      offer organized and open spaces for targeted discussions. An
      expected result is to form a common understanding on the topic
      of modeling, comparing, and adapting context. Additional
      discussions will be about integrating explanation and
      justification into context-aware applications to enable
      trustworthy systems.

      ----- Topics -----
      The topics that fall within the scope of this workshop include,
      but are not limited to:

      - Reasoning about context with cases
      - Context in case adaptation
      - Context in case indexing and similarity
      - Context-based situation assessment
      - Context to predict solution applicability
      - Use of different context models in CBR
      - Consequences of changing contexts in CBR systems
      - Evaluations of context-aware CBR applications
      - Explanation and context (explaining contextual elements)
      - Trust, trustworthiness, and reliability

      ----- Important Dates -----

      26 May 2006 Deadline for workshop paper submission
      16 June 2006 Notification of acceptance for workshop papers

      ----- Submissions and Style ------
      Workshop submissions will be electronic, in pdf format only,
      using a submission system on the workshop website. Papers must
      be written in English and not exceed 15 pages in the Springer
      LNCS format. At least one author of each accepted paper must
