There is a growing interest in context-aware applications that
intelligently support user tasks by acting autonomously on behalf of users.
Behavior of context-aware applications depends not only on their internal
state and user interactions but also on the context sensed during their
execution. Some early models of context information already exist, however
many research issues related to context information modeling are still not
fully addressed. Existing context models vary in types of context
information they can represent. While some models take the user’s current
situation, e.g. “in a meeting”, into account others model the physical
environment, i.e. locations. A more generic approach to context modeling is
needed in order to capture various features of context information
including a variety of types of context information, dependencies between
context information, quality of context information and context histories.
In addition, to ease software engineering problems encountered in
programming context-aware applications, appropriate abstractions are
necessary to support discovery and reuse of context information as well as
scalable methods of context processing and management. This workshop’s aim
is to advance the state of the art in context modeling and reasoning and
also discuss fundamental issues in context processing and management. The
goal is to identify concepts, theories and methods applicable to context
modeling and context reasoning as well as system- oriented issues related
to the design and implementation of context-aware systems.

In particular, the following topics are of interest to this workshop:
* Context modeling techniques
* Domain-specific context models
* Ontology-based approaches to context modeling and reasoning
* Hybrid context models (integration of various modeling techniques)
* Advanced issues in context modeling, including issues of information
quality, ambiguity, and provenance
* Context reasoning algorithms, their complexity and accuracy
* Discovery and reuse of context information
* Privacy of context information
* Distributed and scalable context management
* Experiences with using context models to build context-aware applications
* Tool support for context modeling and development of context model-
based applications
* Balance of autonomy with user control
