                     on Modeling and Using Context

                     Roskilde University - Denmark

CONTEXT 07 Workshops:

CONTEXT 07 invites proposals for the workshop program. Workshops will
be held on August 20-21 immediately prior to the main program of the


The main goal of the CONTEXT 07 workshops is to stimulate and
facilitate an active exchange on unique and interdisciplinary
applications, ideas, approaches, and methods about specific topics in
the general area of Modeling and Using Context. The Workshops provide
a setting that fosters informal discussion and active engagement among
attendees. Researchers from all disciplines are invited to submit
proposals for workshop for review. Workshops on specific relevant
aspects of broader topics and newly evolving areas of Context are
particularly encouraged.

Workshops in general will be one full day in duration, exceptionally
lasting half a day or two days. Format and content of each workshop
will largely be determined by each workshop's organizing
committee. Proposals for "mini-conference" style workshops are
discouraged and ample time should be allotted for general
discussion. Workshop organizers and attendees must register for the
main CONTEXT 07 conference!

For presenting workshop summaries to all conference attendees, a time
slot of about 10 minutes each will be provided in coordination with
the main conference's regular sessions. These summaries should be
presented by at least one of the workshop's organizers.


To propose a workshop for CONTEXT 07, you will submit a full proposal
of at most 5 pages containing the following information:

 * The proposed title of the workshop;
 * A brief description of the technical issues the workshop addresses;
 * A brief discussion on target audience and relevance to CONTEXT 07;
 * A preliminary workshop agenda/schedule, including desired duration;
 * A description of the intended workshop format and style;
 * A description of paper review process and acceptance standards;
 * Potential program committee members, including their affiliations;
 * Number of expected and, if available, a list of interested attendees;
 * Intended means of advertising the workshop;
 * Related workshops recently held, with description and location;
 * Contact information, including the names, postal addresses, phone
   numbers, and email addresses of the proposed workshop organizing
   committee. The committee should consist of three or four people
   knowledgeable about the technical issues to be addressed and,
   ideally, not being from the same institution;
 * Brief notes on each member of the organizing committee and their
   recent work relating to the technical issues addressed.

All proposals should be submitted by electronic mail to the CONTEXT 07
workshop chair as PDF file as soon as possible but no later than
January 31, 2007 at:

  context07 at

Proposals will be reviewed by the program committee and prospective
organizers will be notified of their decision no later than February
15, 2006.


For all accepted proposals, CONTEXT 07 will be responsible for:

 * Providing a meeting place for the workshop;
 * Determining the workshop date and time;
 * Duplicating working notes.

Workshop organizers will be responsible for the following:

 * Setting up a web site for the workshop;
 * Advertising the workshop and issuing a call for papers/participation;
 * Review and select presentations and papers;
 * Providing the complete workshop's working notes as single PDF file;
 * Ensure registration of workshop organizers and participants to the
   main conference;
 * Arrange for special requirements with the CONTEXT 07 Workshop Chair
   no later than July 18, 2007.

The workshop's call for papers should clarify the process by which the
organizing committee will review and select the papers and
presentations for being accepted. Additionally, the procedure, form,
and dates for submissions should be included. It is recommended to
adopt the deadlines for submissions and notifications from the list of
important dates as given below.

CONTEXT 07 reserves the right to cancel any workshop if the above
responsibilities are not fulfilled, or if too few attendees register
for the workshop. In special cases, the CONTEXT 07 program committee
may suggest the consolidation of workshops, to prevent the need for

The decision on the acceptance of workshops to be included in the
final CONTEXT 07 program will be based upon multiple factors, among
others, scientific and/or technical interest of the topic, the
proposal's quality, distinctness and balance of the workshop's topics,
and the capacity of the conference workshop program.
