    MODELING AND USING CONTEXT Trento, Italy, September 9-11, 1999.

    The Second International and Interdisciplinary Conference on Modeling and Using Context (CONTEXT'99) aims at providing a high quality forum for discussion on context among researchers active in Artificial Intelligence, Cognitive Science, Computer Science, Linguistics, Philosophy, and Psychology.


    Topics of interest include (but are not restricted to) the following:

    Animated Characters Cognitive Modeling Commonsense Reasoning Communication Constraint-Based Reasoning Databases and Active Databases Data Mining Decision Support Systems Diagnostic Reasoning Dynamics of Context Formal Theories of Context Propositional Attitudes Heterogeneous Information Integration Information Management Intelligent Tutoring Systems Knowledge Engineering Knowledge Representation Machine Learning Multi-Agent Systems Natural Language Processing Natural Language Semantics Pattern Recognition Philosophical Foundations Pragmatics Temporal Reasoning Spatial Reasoning


    Participants will be selected on the basis of submitted papers (10 single-spaced A4 pages maximum) by three referees at least. Papers must include in the first page: title, author's name(s), affiliation, complete mailing address, phone number, fax number, e-mail address, an abstract of 300 words maximum, and up to five keywords. Electronic submission (compressed/zipped/gzipped standard PostScript file under the name is strongly encouraged; alternatively, authors may send five hardcopies of the paper via surface mail. Submitted papers should arrive to the Conference Chair no later than March 30, 1999.

    *** FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS AND REFEREES *** ==========================================

    1999 ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC '99) Special Track on Coordination Models, Languages and Applications

    February 28 - March 2, 1999 The Menger, San Antonio, Texas, U. S. A.


    SAC '99: ~~~~~~~~ Over the past thirteen years, the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC) has become a primary forum for applied computer scientists and application developers from around the world to interact and present their work. SAC'99 is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Groups SIGAda, SIGAPP, SIGBIO, and SIGCUE.

    Authors are invited to contribute original papers in all areas of experimental computing and application development for the technical sessions. There will be a number of special tracks on such issues as Programming Languages, Parallel and Distributed Computing, Mobile and Scientific Computing, Internet and the WWW, etc.

    Coordination Models, Languages and Applications Track: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    A special track on coordination models, languages and applications will be held at SAC'99. The term "coordination" here is used in a rather broad sense covering traditional models and languages (e.g. ones based on the Shared Dataspace and CHAM metaphors) but also other related formalisms such as configuration and architectural description frameworks, systems modeling abstractions and languages, programming skeletons, etc.

    This track on coordination is held for the second time as part of ACM SAC's events. The CFP for the ACM SAC'98 track attracted 33 submissions from 18 countries; 8 of those submissions were accepted as regular papers and 4 more as short papers.

    Major topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

    * Novel models, languages, programming and implementation techniques. * Relationship with other computational models such as object oriented, declarative (functional, logic, constraint) programming or extensions of them with coordination capabilities. * Applications (especially where the industry is involved). * Theoretical aspects (semantics, reasoning, verification). * Software architectures and software engineering techniques. * Middleware platforms (e.g. CORBA). * All aspects related to the modeling of Information Systems (groupware, Internet and the Web, workflow management, CSCW).

    Guidelines for Submission: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Original papers from the above-mentioned or other related areas will be considered. This includes three categories of submissions: 1) original and unpublished research; 2) reports of innovative computing applications in the arts, sciences, engineering, business, government, education and industry; and 3) reports of successful technology transfer to new problem domains. Each submitted paper will be fully refereed and undergo a blind review process by at least three referees.

    The accepted papers in all categories will be published in the ACM SAC'99 proceedings. There will also be a special issue of the Journal of Programming Languages, Chapman & Hall ( jp/default.html) with expanded versions of selected papers from those that will be accepted for this special track as regular papers.

    Submission guidelines must be strictly followed:

    * Submit six (6) copies of original manuscripts to the SAC '99 Coordination Models, Languages and Applications Track Program Chair (address shown above). Alternatively, submit your paper electronically in uuencoded compressed postscript format; this is strongly encouraged. Fax submissions will not be accepted.

    * The author(s) name(s) and address(es) must not appear in the body of the paper, and self-reference should be in the third person. This is to facilitate blind review.

    * The body of the paper should not exceed 5,000 words (approximately 15 pages, double-spaced).

    * A separate cover sheet (in the case of electronic submission this should be sent separately from the main paper) should show the title of the paper, the author(s) name(s) and affiliation(s), and the address (including e-mail, telephone, and FAX) to which correspondence should be sent.

    * All submissions must be received by August 17, 1998.

    Anyone wishing to review papers for this special track should contact the Track Program Chair at the address shown above.

    Important Dates: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ * August 17, 1998: Paper Submission. * October 15, 1998: Author Notification. * December 1, 1998: Camera-Ready Copy.
