             The Third International Workshop on
      Contexts and Ontologies: Representation and Reasoning

August 21, 2007, CONTEXT Workshop Program, Roskilde University, Denmark.

The goal of this workshop is to bring people from the context and
ontology communities together to discuss the approaches they use for
information integration from the knowledge representation and reasoning
perspective. Therefore, the workshop will push the cross-fertilization
and exchange of ideas (e.g., which of the methods from the context
community can be successfully adopted in the ontology community, and
vice versa), and, hence, make their meeting mutually beneficial.

TOPICS of interest include, but are not limited to:
   Information interoperability and reuse via multiple contexts and ontologies.
   Coordination of multiple contexts and ontologies.
   Modular ontologies.
   Logical formalisms for contexts and ontologies.
   Distributed reasoning algorithms for contexts and ontologies.
   Complexity of distributed reasoning for contexts and ontologies.
   Comparison of uses of contexts and ontologies.
   Applications of reasoning with contexts and ontologies in the areas of
   semantic web, information retrieval, e-commerce, telecommunications,
   multimedia, content indexing, grid and peer-to-peer, pervasive computing
   and ambient intelligence.
