Purpose and Scope

Sixteen years after the first Context conference 1997, the Eighth
International and Interdisciplinary Conference on Modeling and Using
Context (CONTEXT'13) sets out to extend foundational research on
context and to evaluate the status and consequences of context, as
well as to address new questions for the field. The main theme of the
CONTEXT’13 is "Context Modeling and Management in real-world
applications" to reflect both the fact that context research has found
numerous successful applications in recent years and the fact that
context modeling and management itself has become a key element in
research and applications. For example, context-aware services can
support their users unobtrusively and offer promising perspectives,
say for cloud computing.

Yet, context management should also be a scientific tool for
context-research itself. Context modeling and management offer new
ways for studying and using powerful context-centered tools for
supporting human reasoning during decision-making, diagnosis,
interpretation, recognition, etc. Context modeling and management are
the keystones of support systems that would be able to pretend to
behave intelligent systems.

The Eighth International and Interdisciplinary Conference on Modeling
and Using Context (CONTEXT'13) will provide a forum for presenting and
discussing high-quality research and applications on context in an
interdisciplinary way. The conference will include papers, posters,
and video presentations, system demonstrations, workshops, and a
doctoral consortium. The conference chairs invite researchers and
practitioners to share insights and cutting-edge results from the wide
range of disciplines concerned with context, including: Cognitive
Sciences (Linguistics, Psychology, Computer Science, Neuroscience),
computer science (artificial intelligence, logics, ubiquitous and
pervasive computing, context-awareness systems), the Social Sciences
and Organizational Sciences, the Humanities and all application areas,
including Medicine and Law.

Areas of interest include but are not limited to the role of context in:

Ambient intelligence
Analogy and Case-Based Reasoning
Autonomous Agents and Agent-­based Systems
Cognitive Modeling
Concepts and Categorization
Context architectures
Context-­driven testing
Context mediated behavior

Installation, Games, Geographical Information Systems, Law,
Linguistics, Management, Medicine and health care, Transportation,
Robotics, etc.

Conference Events
CONTEXT'13 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

Acceptance Criteria and Submission Categories
CONTEXT welcomes original, high quality research contributions
that advance the state of the art in their field. Because CONTEXT’13
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, 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. Poster presentations and videos will be published in a DVD
with a e ISBN distributed to attendees. For a paper to appear in the
proceedings, at least one author must register for the conference by
the deadline for camera-ready copy.

Submission Procedures
Papers must be exclusively submitted electronically as PDF files
through the EasyChair system. Submissions cannot exceed 14 pages in
the Springer LNAI format. Detailed formatting and submissions
instructions, as well as LaTeX and Word templates, can be accessed
through the detailed author instructions page.

Authors are encouraged to submit a video illustrating their research
(experiment procedure, system prototype, etc.) and all accepted
authors will have the option of presenting a system demonstration at
the poster session. Authors wishing to present a demonstration/video
without an accompanying paper must submit a demonstration/video
abstract. Demonstration/video abstracts should describe cutting-edge
research not described in paper submissions. Demonstration abstracts
should summarize the system's behavior and significance, and should
include at least one screen shot. If desired, they may also include
the URL of an informal video on the web. Demonstration/video abstracts
should be at most 2 pages long. Selected demo/video will be published
on a CD or DVD.

Multiple Submissions Policy
CONTEXT'13 will not accept any paper, which, at the time of
submission, is under review for or has already been published or
accepted for publication in a journal or another conference.
