1st International Workshop on Contextualization of Human Centered Processes (CHCP 2008),

 in conjunction with HCP 2008 3rd International Conference on Human Centered Processes

June  9-12, 2008 Delft, Nederlands


You are invited to submit your papers to the 1st International Workshop on Contextualization of Human Centered Processes (part of the 3rd International Conference on Human Centered Processes), to be held in June 12, 2008 Delft, Nederlands.

The objective of the workshop is to bring together researchers, developers and practitioners to discuss research issues and experience in developing and deploying models or applications, in which actor's behavior rely heavily on contextual knowledge. Concrete aspects of contexts can be considered at different levels ranging from knowledge representation to modelling. Papers describing application experiences are particularly encouraged. To effectively exploit the true potential of contextual knowledge, methods and tools to facilitate its modelling are required. Managing contextual information provides both new challenges and opportunities. Since the major theme of the workshop is context at the heart of human centered activity, challenges that are addressed must include among others:

    * new methods and new algorithms for contextualization,

    * how to bridge the gap between semantic web and contexts,

    * contextualization of ontological engineering,

    * context in design tools,

    * context in interactive systems (e.g., question-answering systems),

    * ambient systems which must include a user model,

    * inter-personal work practices modelling in enterprises,

in all domains where context plays a key role (recognized explicitly or not) because the human is the core of the processes that are concerned. Modelling the interplay between tasks and contexts is a crucial part of contextualization required for a sound analysis of their evolution. We would like to explore the role of contextualization at the human and machine level (knowledge, user model, mental representation, personalization, individualization, learning-when-doing, knowledge representation, metadata, relationships with incremental acquisition, learning, explanation, statistical methods, training, education, etc.). We are also interested in investigation of formalisms to ensure sound mechanisms incorporating human activity and context models.
