Call for Participation CONTEXT'01: Third International Conference on Modeling and Using Context University of Dundee Dundee, Scotland July 27-30, 2001 http://www.context.umcs.main e.edu/CONTEXT-01 (mirrored at http://www.cee.hw.ac.uk/context-01 ) (This document is also available in US letter-sized PostScript, A4-sized PostScript, US letter-sized PDF, A4-sized PDF, and text forms.) The biennial International and Interdisciplinary Conference on Modeling and Using Context (CONTEXT) provides a forum for high-quality discussions about context among researchers in artficial intelligence, cognitive science, computer science, linguistics, organizational science, philosophy, and psychology. Context is important in a wide range of fields and applications, and in a variety of ways. The importance of studying context as a subject matter in its own right, as well as in how it relates to other areas, is widely acknowledged. This is evidenced by numerous recent workshops, symposia, seminars, and conferences on the subject (see the Context Web site). The CONTEXT series of conferences has a unique place among these these due to its strong emphasis on interdisciplinary research. The first conference in this series (CONTEXT'97) was held in Rio de Janeiro in 1997, and the second (CONTEXT'99) was held in Trento in 1999 (see http://www.cs.unitn.it/CONTEXT-99 for details). TOPICS OF INTEREST The following topics are indicative of the scope of the conference: case-based reasoning, cognitive modeling, commonsense reasoning, active databases, decision support systems, distributed information systems, formal theories of context, heterogeneous information integration, human-computer interaction, information management, intelligent internet systems, intelligent tutoring systems, knowledge engineering, knowledge management, knowledge representation, machine learning, multi-agent systems, natural language processing, natural language semantics, organizational contexts, philosophical foundations, and pragmatics.
