ICCS'11: Conceptual Structures for Discovering Knowledge
25th - 29th July, University of Derby, United Kingdom


The 19th International Conference on Conceptual Structures (ICCS 2011) is the latest in a series of annual conferences that have been held in Europe, Asia, Australia, and North America since 1993. The focus of these conferences has been the representation and analysis of conceptual knowledge for research and business applications. ICCS brings together researchers in information technology, arts, humanities and social science to explore novel ways that can conceptual structures can be employed in information systems.

Arising originally out of the work of IBM in Conceptual Graphs, over the years ICCS has broadened its scope to include a wider range of theories and practices, among them Formal Concept Analysis, Description Logics, the Semantic Web, the Pragmatic Web, Ontologies, Multi-agent Systems, Concept Mapping, and more. Accordingly conceptual structures represent a family of approaches that builds on the successes of artificial intelligence, business intelligence, computational linguistics, conceptual modelling, information and web technologies, user modelling, and knowledge management.

ICCS 2011's theme is "Conceptual Structures for Discovering Knowledge". More and more data is being captured in electronic format (particularly through the Web) and it is emerging that this data is reaching such a critical mass that it is becoming the most recorded form of the world around us. It now represents our business, economic, arts, social, and scientific endeavours to such an extent that we require smart applications that can discover the hitherto hidden knowledge that this mass of data is busily capturing. By bringing together the way computers work with the way humans think, conceptual structures align the productivity of computer processing with the ingenuity of individuals and organisations in a meaningful digital future.

Papers for ICCS 2011 are invited but are not limited to the following topics:

*       conceptual structures (theory, applications, and experience with case studies);
*       their interplay with human or organisational experience and language,
*       semantics and pragmatics;
*       concept analysis and contextual logic,
*       capturing concepts through smart data and information processing;
*       modelling, 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, business intelligence, multi-agent systems, knowledge use, reuse, and integration, and business productivity tools 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.

Submission Details

Papers are limited to 14 pages in Springer's LNCS format. We recommend the use of LaTeX2e for the final version. Visit http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs for more details. Short papers (up to 4 pages) are also welcome.


*       Friday January 14, 2011: a one page abstract submitted via conference website (http://www.iccs.info) NB: Abstracts should clearly state the purpose, results and conclusions of the work to be described in the final paper.
*       Friday January 21, 2011: full paper in PDF format submitted via the conference website (http://www.iccs.info)

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/lncs). A precondition for publication is that the final version is in full compliance with Springer's format.
