Call for Papers

Download the Springer Consent to Publish Form from here, fill it in and print it out, sign it by hand, then scan it as a single PDF file, and email it to the Program Chair by 3 October 2019.

As in the tradition of the series, submissions are invited from a wide range of disciplines, including:

  • artificial intelligence;
  • computer science;
  • context-aware applications;
  • ubiquitous computing;
  • cognitive science and psychology;
  • social and organizational sciences;
  • linguistics;
  • philosophy;
  • various application areas, including (but not limited to) finance, medicine & healthcare, virtual and augmented reality, food, sport, business intelligence, big data analytics, education & e-learning, law.

All accepted papers must be accessible also to non-specialists, for example, by providing accessible discussions of the disciplinary prerequisites to allow those outside the discipline to understand the work. Papers of broad interdisciplinary interest will be presented in plenary sessions; all other papers will be presented in disciplinary sessions.

The conference also welcomes poster submissions. A short paper describing each poster, no longer than four pages, will appear in the conference proceedings, and some of the participants of the doctoral consortium will be invited to present a poster. Panels will bring together distinguished researchers in various fields to discuss interdisciplinary issues in modeling and using context. Best Paper and other awards, to be highlighted in the proceedings, will be conferred at the closing ceremony.

For CONTEXT-2019, we also warmly invite two special categories of papers:


Papers which offer a deep retrospective view
of how context had an impact
in scientific and technological research
and applications since CONTEXT-99.


Papers which offer a game-changing vision
of how context can lead to disruptive innovation
in the next 20 years (“let’s meet again in 2039”).


In addition to the traditional Best Paper award, this year for the first time a Best Video Pitch Award will be assigned to the best 1 minute video created in support of an already accepted paper. The video must be submitted through the Facebook page of the conference. The video pitch must illustrate in a short and accessible way the key message of the paper, present key results, and explain why people should read it.


Accepted papers have been published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) series as volume 11939. See the publication here:

Springer LNAI 11939: Modeling and Using Context


Papers will be submitted electronically using the Springer LNAI format and through the EasyChair website.

  • Full papers cannot exceed 14 pages, including references and any other material.
  • Short papers that accompany posters cannot exceed four pages, including references and any other material.

Note that you will be asked to propose a type of session you think the more adapted to your submission. If it is not possible or the technical committee decide that your submission can be accepted for another type of session, you will be informed at the notification moment.

CONTEXT-2019 will not accept any paper which, at the time of submission, is under review for, has been accepted by, or appears in any other journal or conference.
