ICFCA 2017

14th International Conference on Formal Concept Analysis

June 12—16, 2017, Rennes, France

Web: (


* Overview

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 ICFCA conference series aims at bringing 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.

All accepted submissions will be refereed, and the conference proceedings will
be published by Springer in the LNCS/LNAI series.

* Topics

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, e.g., semantic web, description logics
- FCA and conceptual structures, e.g., concept graphs, knowledge spaces
- FCA and data analysis, e.g., hierarchical classification, data organization
- FCA and data mining, e.g., pattern mining
- FCA and information retrieval, e.g. exploratory search, navigation, querying
- FCA and machine learning, e.g., learning with hypothesis, feature selection
- FCA and database theory, e.g., 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, e.g., sampling, parallel computing
- Analysis of social networks and their dynamics
- Applications for scientific data analysis, e.g., in biology or health care
- 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 format via
the Easychair system


Authors are requested to follow the formatting instructions for the Springer
LNCS style.[1] Submissions in LaTeX2e are preferred. Authors are encouraged to
provide an ORCID alongside their submission.[2]

Accepted papers have to be presented at the conference. Therefore, at least one
author per paper has to register timely.
