Jun 01, 2015


The Ninth International and Interdisciplinary Conference on Modeling and Using Context

Larnaca, Cyprus, 2–6 November 2015

First announcement and call for papers

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.
