                    FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS
9th International Conference on Formal Concept Analysis (ICFCA2011)

May 2 - 6, 2011, Nicosia, Cyprus

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

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:

    * FCA theory
    * Lattice Theory
    * Lattice Drawing
    * Philosophical Foundations
    * FCA and Logic
    * Conceptual Knowledge
    * Concept Graphs
    * Data Analysis
    * FCA and Data Mining
    * Association Rules and Pattern Mining
    * Analysis of Social Networks
    * Data Mining on Web 2.0 and the Semantic Web
    * Algorithms and Complexity Theory
    * FCA and Software Engineering

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. For each paper, an abstract must be submitted
by December 8, 2010. The submission is to be done via the conference
