Please download the layout guidelines (for "Modeling and Using Context" articles): Guidelines


Modeling and Using Context is the first interdisciplinary journal open to scientists whose research focuses on taking context into consideration.


The importance of context is recognized in a lot of subjects among which we can find emerging communities that need to deal with context in their research and in their practice (including equipment).


The journal is a platform for the exchange of experiences, discoveries and results in every subject. Given that the journal is read by an interdisciplinary public, the submitted articles must be intelligible for people who are not specialists in the author’s field.

Modélisation et utilisation du contexte est la première revue interdisciplinaire ouverte aux scientifiques dont les recherches portent sur la prise en compte du contexte.

L’importance du contexte est reconnue dans de nombreuses disciplines, dont celles des communautés émergentes qui doivent faire face au contexte dans leurs recherches comme dans leurs applications (y compris les équipements).


La revue est une plate-forme d’échanges des expériences, des découvertes et des résultats dans toutes les disciplines. La revue étant lue par un public interdisciplinaire, les articles soumis doivent être compréhensibles par des non spécialistes du domaine de l’auteur.
