Call For Papers

12th International Conference on Formal Concept Analysis (ICFCA2014)
June 10 - 13, 2014, Cluj-Napoca, Romania

What is it?
Formal Concept Analysis emerged in the 1980's from attempts to restructure lattice theory in order to promote better communication between lattice theorists and potential users of lattice theory. Since its early years, Formal Concept Analysis has developed into a research field in its own right with a thriving theoretical community and a rapidly expanding range of applications in information and knowledge processing including visualization, data analysis (mining) and knowledge management and discovery.

The conference aims to bring together researchers and practitioners working on theoretical or applied aspects of Formal Concept Analysis within major related areas such as Mathematics and Computer and Information Sciences and their diverse applications to fields like Software Engineering, Linguistics, Life and Social Sciences, etc.

Main topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Fundamental aspects of FCA
- FCA theory
- Lattice theory
- Lattice drawing
- Philosophical foundations
- Algorithms and complexity theory

Bridging FCA to information sciences and artificial intelligence
- FCA and logic (semantic web, description logics, ...)
- FCA and conceptual structures (concept graphs, knowledge space, ...)
- FCA and data analysis (hierarchical classification, data organization, ...)
- FCA and data mining (pattern mining)
- FCA and machine learning (learning with hypothesis, feature selection, ...)
- FCA and database theory (dependencies, rules, data cubes, ...)
- FCA and software engineering
- FCA and morphological mathematics

Understanding, modelling real-world data and phenomena with FCA
- Analysis of "big data" with FCA (sampling, parallel computing, ...)
- Analysis of social networks and their dynamics
- Applications for scientific data analysis (in biology, health, ...)
- Applications for sensors data and user interactions traces
- Other FCA applications

Submission Details
We invite scientific publications on theory and applications of Formal Concept Analysis. Papers of up to sixteen pages may be submitted in the PDF or Postscript format via the Easychair system For each paper, an abstract must be submitted by December 10, 2013. Authors are requested to follow the formatting instructions for the Springer LNCS style, see

Accepted papers must be presented at the conference, therefore at least one author per paper has to register timely. All submissions will be refereed, and the conference proceedings will be published by Springer in the LNCS/LNAI series.
