     14th International Conference on Conceptual Structures
     Conceptual Structures: Inspiration and Application
     July 16 - 21, Aalborg University, Denmark

     Call for Papers

     The International Conferences on Conceptual Structures (ICCS) has 
been held annually in Europe, Australia, or North America since 1993. 
The central focus is the formal representation and analysis of 
conceptual knowledge with research and business applications focusing on 
artificial intelligence, computational linguistics, and related areas of 
computer science.

     Historically, a group of researchers working on the theory and 
applications of Conceptual Graphs founded the ICCS. Over the years, they 
have broadened the scope to include a wider range of theories, among 
them Formal Concept Analysis, Description Logics, Semantic Web, 
Ontologies, and related techniques.

     The theme of ICCS 2006 - Conceptual Structures: Inspiration and 
Application - points to a dual focus of interest. We intend to focus on 
inspirational sources that have led to the current status of research in 
our community as well as on ways in which these legacies can be employed 
to further advance theory and practice in the field of knowledge 
representation and processing.

     Papers for ICCS 2006 are invited on the following topics: 
conceptual structures (theory, applications, and experience with case 
studies); their interplay with language, semantics and pragmatics; 
formal methods for concept analysis and contextual logic, modeling, 
representation, and visualization of concepts; conceptual knowledge 
acquisition; and the theory and applications of formal ontologies. 
Comparisons of methods and representations on the basis of reasoning 
ability, expressiveness, ease of use, and computational performance are 
welcome. Integration of methodologies, user interfaces, semantic web 
technologies, knowledge use, reuse, and integration, and business 
product tools descriptions are all of high interest.

     Authors are invited to submit papers describing both theoretical 
and practical research. Papers accepted or under review by other 
conferences or journals are not acceptable as submissions to ICCS. The 
language of the conference will be English.

     Submission Details

     Papers are limited to 14 pages in Springer's LNCS format. We 
strongly recommend the use of LaTeX2e for the final version. For more 
details see http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs.

     Position papers (2 pages) are also welcome.

     For all papers, a one page abstract must be received by Friday 
January 6, 2006. Abstracts should clearly state the purpose, results and 
conclusions of the work to be described in the final paper. The 
electronic submission of the full paper in PDF format must be received 
on or before Friday January 13, 2005.

     All papers must be submitted through the conference website. In 
case you have any problems with the electronic submission, please 
contact the chairs as early as possible at iccs06 at hum.aau.dk

     Final acceptance will be based on the full-length paper, which if 
accepted, must be presented at the conference. Papers accepted for 
publication will appear in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence 
Series by Springer-Verlag (see http://www.springeronline.com/lncs). 
Position papers and papers which are not included in the LNAI volume, 
but are of sufficient quality and interest to the community, will be 
published in supplementary proceedings. A precondition for publication 
(for all papers) is that the final version is in full compliance with 
Springer's format.
