Context awareness is the notion of computer systems that dynamically adapt their behavior to a changing environment. Such applications are useful in many situations ranging from general human-computer interaction over business process execution to healthcare or logistics. However, mainstream programming languages and tools do not offer dedicated support for adaptive properties. Additionally, as context awareness is an application requirement, it should already be addressed at the modeling level. This workshop attempts to bring together researchers from the disparate communities to exchange ideas, establish a common research program, and foster new collaborations.
