Besides contributed papers, this workshop will offer organised and open spaces for targeted discussions. Our discussions this year will be focused on human-centred approaches in general and ethics and the preservation of privacy in the context of personalization and autonomy in particular.

A balanced mix of peer reviewed paper presentations, organised panel discussion sessions, industry input, and open discussion time will make the workshop a dynamic venue to attract participants.

The workshop will last one full day and will have three main types of interaction.

The first type will consist of short presentations of the accepted papers. The goal of these sessions is to introduce the work of all the participants.

The second type will consist of one or two panel discussion sessions, each dedicated to one specific issue. Suggested issues are "Human-Centred Views on Context" and "Ethics of Context & Context of Ethics", but this is subject to change dependent on the interests of the attendees and the nature of submissions. The goal of the panels is to discuss the various approaches to these basic issues and to identify the critical problems in need of attention and the most promising research directions.

The workshop will be concluded with the last type, an open, but guided discussion summarising the most important lessons learned.

Industry representatives are invited to display context related demonstrations during the workshop.

MRC strongly focuses on interactivity and discussion. Therefore, we do not plan to have an invited speaker.
