26-30 September 2011, The Seventh International and Interdisciplinary Conference on Context (CONTEXT'11), Karlsruhe, Germany

Date: 26-30 September 2011
Location: Karlsruhe, Germany
Deadline: 8 May 2011

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 welcomes original, high-quality research contributions that advance the state of the art in their field. Works that transcend disciplinary boundaries are especially encouraged. Submissions may be for full papers, poster abstracts, videos with a video abstract, or demonstration abstracts. Deadline for submissions: May 8, 2011.
