About ICCS

The International Conferences on Conceptual Structures (ICCS) focus on 
the formal analysis and representation of conceptual knowledge at the 
crossroads of artificial intelligence, human cognition, computational 
linguistics, and related areas of computer science and cognitive 
science. The ICCS conferences evolved from seven annual workshops on 
conceptual graphs, starting with an informal gathering hosted by John F. 
Sowa in 1986. Recently, graph-based knowledge representation and 
reasoning (KRR) paradigms have been getting more and more attention. 
With the rise of quasi-autonomous AI, graph-based representations 
provide a vehicle for making machine cognition explicit to human users. 
ICCS 2023 will take place in Berlin, Germany, in September 2023. 
Scholars, students and industry participants from different disciplines 
will meet for several weeks of conferences, workshops, summer schools, 
and public events to engage with the broad topics, issues and challenges 
related to knowledge in the 21st century.

Submissions are invited on significant, original, and previously 
unpublished research on the formal analysis and representation of 
conceptual knowledge in artificial intelligence (AI). All papers will 
receive mindful and rigorous reviews that will provide authors with 
useful critical feedback. The aim of the ICCS 2023 conference is to 
build upon its long-standing expertise in graph-based KRR and focus on 
providing modelling, formal and application results of graph-based 
systems. In particular, the conference welcomes contributions that 
address graph-based representation and reasoning paradigms (e.g. 
Bayesian Networks (BNs), Semantic Networks (SNs), RDF(S), Conceptual 
Graphs (CGs), Formal Concept Analysis (FCA), CP-Nets, GAI-Nets, Graph 
Databases, Diagrams, Knowledge Graphs, Semantic Web, etc.) from a 
modelling, theoretical and application viewpoint.


Topics include but are not limited to:
Existential and Conceptual Graphs
Graph-based models for human reasoning
Social network analysis
Formal Concept Analysis
Conceptual knowledge acquisition
Data and Text mining
Human and machine reasoning under inconsistency
Human and machine knowledge representation and uncertainty
Automated decision-making
Constraint satisfaction
Contextual logic
Knowledge architecture and management
Semantic Web, Web of Data, Web 2.0, Linked (Open) Data
Conceptual structures in natural language processing and linguistics
Metaphoric, cultural or semiotic considerations
Resource allocation and agreement technologies
Philosophical, neural, and didactic investigations of conceptual, 
graphical representations

Submission Details

We invite scientific papers of up to fourteen pages, short contributions 
of up to eight pages, and extended poster abstracts of up to three 
pages. Papers and poster abstracts must be formatted according to 
Springer’s LNCS style guidelines and not exceed the page limit. Papers 
will be subject to double-blind peer review, in which the reviewers do 
not know the author's identity. We recommend using services like 
https://anonymous.4open.science/ to anonymously share code or data. 
Anonymized works that are available as preprints (e.g., on arXiv or 
SSRN) may be submitted without citing them. Submission should be made 
via EasyChair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iccs2023. All 
paper submissions will be refereed, and authors will have the 
opportunity to respond to reviewers’ comments during the rebuttal phase. 
Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings, 
published by Springer in the LNCS/LNAI series. Poster submissions will 
also be refereed  and selected poster abstracts might be included in the 
conference proceedings. At least one author of each accepted paper or 
poster must register for the conference and present the paper or poster 
there. Proceedings will be indexed by DBLP.
