Event in series ICCS
ICCS2006 is the 14th International Conference on Conceptual Structures, located in Aalborg, Denmark. It is the 14th conference of the ICCS series. For more information, see http://www.i.css-06.hum.aau.dk/index.htm.
ICCS 2006 Conference: July 16-July 21 2006, 2006
Call for Papers
The International Conferences on Conceptual Structures (ICCS) has been held annually in Europe, Australia, or North America since 1993. The central focus is the formal representation and analysis of conceptual knowledge with research and business applications focusing on artificial intelligence, computational linguist.css, and related areas of computer science.
Historically, a group of researchers working on the theory and applications of Conceptual Graphs founded the ICCS. Over the years, they have broadened the scope to include a wider range of theories, among them Formal Concept Analysis, Description Log.css, Semantic Web, Ontologies, and related techniques.
The theme of ICCS 2006 - Conceptual Structures: Inspiration and Application - points to a dual focus of interest. We intend to focus on inspirational sources that have led to the current status of research in our community as well as on ways in which these legacies can be employed to further advance theory and practice in the field of knowledge representation and processing.
Papers for ICCS 2006 are invited on the following top.css: conceptual structures (theory, applications, and experience with case studies); their interplay with language, semant.css and pragmat.css; formal methods for concept analysis and contextual logic, modeling, representation, and visualization of concepts; conceptual knowledge acquisition; and the theory and applications of formal ontologies. Comparisons of methods and representations on the basis of reasoning ability, expressiveness, ease of use, and computational performance are welcome. Integration of methodologies, user interfaces, semantic web technologies, knowledge use, reuse, and integration, and business product tools descriptions are all of high interest.
Authors are invited to submit papers describing both theoretical and practical research. Papers accepted or under review by other conferences or journals are not acceptable as submissions to ICCS. The language of the conference will be English.
life, the universe, and everything
Papers are limited to 14 pages in Springer's LNCS format. We strongly recommend the use of LaTeX2e for the final version. For more details see http://www.springer.de/comp/l.css.
Position papers (2 pages) are also welcome.
For all papers, a one page abstract must be received by Friday January 6, 2006. Abstracts should clearly state the purpose, results and conclusions of the work to be described in the final paper. The electronic submission of the full paper in PDF format must be received on or before Friday January 13, 2005.
All papers must be submitted through the conference website. In case you have any problems with the electronic submission, please contact the chairs as early as possible at email@example.com
Final acceptance will be based on the full-length paper, which if accepted, must be presented at the conference. Papers accepted for publication will appear in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence Series by Springer-Verlag (see http://www.springeronline.com/l.css). Position papers and papers which are not included in the LNAI volume, but are of sufficient quality and interest to the community, will be published in supplementary proceedings. A precondition for publication (for all papers) is that the final version is in full compliance with Springer's format.
