Call For Papers


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 a series of 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 are getting more and more
attention. With the rise of quasi-autonomous AI, graph-based
representations provide a vehicle for making machine cognition
explicit to its human users. This year ICCS 2021 is a part of “Bolzano
Summer of Knowledge” (BOSK 2021,
which will take place in Bolzano, Italy during the month of September, 2021.
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unpublished research on the formal analysis and representation of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 2021 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. 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

Submission Details:


We invite scientific papers of up to *fourteen pages*, short
contributions up to *eight pages* and extended poster abstracts of up
to three pages. Papers and posters 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 identity of authors, and the submission should be done
via EasyChair 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,
which are will be published by Springer in the LNCS/LNAI
series. Poster submissions will also be refereed but will not 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 submitted for
indexation by DBLP (cf
