Call For Papers

*** Final Call for Papers and Posters ***

The 9th International and Interdisciplinary Conference on Modeling
and Using Context (CONTEXT 2015)

2–6 November 2015, Lordos Beach Hotel, Larnaca, Cyprus

*** Extended Deadline: June 15, 2015 ***

The CONTEXT conferences are the world’s prime forum for presentation and
exchange of insights and cutting-edge results from the wide range of
disciplines concerned with context.

The main theme of CONTEXT 2015 is “Back to the roots”, focusing on the
importance of interdisciplinary cooperations and studies of the phenomenon.
Context, context modeling and context comprehension are central topics in
linguistics, philosophy, sociology, artificial intelligence, computer science,
art, law, organizational sciences, cognitive science, psychology, etc. and are
also essential for the effectiveness of modern, complex and distributed
software systems.

CONTEXT 2015 invites high-quality contributions from researchers and
practitioners in foundational studies, applications and evaluations of
modeling and use of context in all relevant fields. Areas of interest include,
but are not limited to, the role of context seen from different perspectives in:

• Agent-based architectures
• Ambient intelligence
• Cognition and perception by humans and artifacts
• Context-aware and situated systems
• Context modeling tools
• Communication and dialogue
• Data analysis and visualization
• Decision making
• Discourse comprehension and representation
• Engineering, e.g., in transport networks, industrial plants etc.
• Experimental philosophy and experimental pragmatics
• (Formal) models of context
• Human-computer interaction
• Knowledge representation
• Language acquisition and processing
• Learning, knowledge management and sharing
• Logic and reasoning
• Machine learning
• Ontology/ies
• Semantics and Pragmatics
• Smart and interactive spaces
• Understanding art, images, music and theatre


Accepted papers and poster abstracts will be published in a volume of the
Springer LNAI series.

Submission format

Submissions may be either full papers of up to 14 pages (in Springer LNCS
format) or poster abstracts of 4–6 pages. Full papers may be accepted as such
with oral presentation, or their authors may be invited to prepare a poster
abstract. Detailed formatting and submissions instructions will be provided.

Conference events

CONTEXT 2015 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. All accepted authors will have
the option of presenting a system demonstration at the poster session.

Keynote talks

• Emma Borg, University of Reading, UK (title TBA)
• Enrico Rukzio, Universität Ulm, Germany
Mobile Interaction with Pervasive User Interfaces


CONTEXT 2015 workshops will provide a platform for presenting novel and
emerging ideas in the use and the modelling of context in a less formal and possibly more focused way than the conference itself. Three workshops are
confirmed so far:

• Smart University 3.0
• CATI - Context Awareness & Tactile design for mobile Interaction

Important dates

Full papers and posters:
• Submission deadline: June 15, 2015 (extended) 
• Notification: July 13, 2015
• Final version: August 17, 2015

Workshops and Doctoral Symposium Papers:

• Notification: September 1, 2015
• Final version: October 1, 2015

Doctoral Consortium

The Context 2015 Doctoral Symposium is an opportunity for doctoral researchers to showcase their work and discuss problems, challenges, and
ideas in an open and collegial environment with expert feedback. The
Doctoral Symposium is a workshop for doctoral researchers from all over
the world who are in the early and middle phases of their research work
(i.e., the Symposium is not intended for those who are finished or nearly finished their research).
