                     ICCS 2014 - Call for Papers

        21st International Conference on Conceptual Structures
            -- Graph-based Representation and Reasoning --

                   27 - 30 July 2014, Iasi, Romania

# Scope and Significance

The International Conferences on Conceptual Structures (ICCS) focus on
the formal  analysis and  representation of conceptual  knowledge with
applications  to artificial  intelligence,  computational linguistics,
and related  areas of computer  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. The aim of  the ICCS 2014 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.

ICCS 2014 will be held in Iasi, Romania at the Al. I. Cuza University,
the oldest higher education institution in Romania. The university was
founded  one  year  after  the  establishment of  the  Romanian  state
in  1860.  Iasi has  a  long tradition  in  higher  education and  has
traditionally  been one  of the  leading centres  of  Romanian social,
cultural, academic and artistic life.

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,  Argumentation,  Graph
Databases,  etc.)  from   a  modelling,  theoretical  and  application
- *Modelling results* will investigate concrete real world needs for
  graph-based representation, how certain use cases are of interest to
  the graph community, how using graphs can bring added (business)
  value, what kind of graph representation is needed for a given case
- *Technical results* will include fundamental graph theory based
  results for novel structures for representation, extensions of
  existing structures for added expressivity, conciseness,
  optimisation algorithms for reasoning, reasoning explanation, etc.
- Papers reporting on *application experience* will be expected to
  demonstrate the benefits of the graph-based proposed solutions in
  the context of the use case studied with respect to other possible
The conference also welcomes papers on the following topics: Knowledge
Management,  Knowledge Architectures,  Reasoning  under Inconsistency,
Knowledge   Representation    and   Uncertainty,   Contextual   Logic,
Metaphoric, Cultural or  Semiotic Considerations, Ontologies, Semantic
Web,  Web of  Data, Web  2.0, Conceptual  Knowledge  Acquisition, Data
Mining,  Text   Mining,  Natural  Language   Processing,  Linguistics,
Constraint  Satisfaction,  Decision  Making, Resource  Allocation  and
Agreement Technologies.

# Submission and Publication

We invite  scientific publications of  up to fourteen pages.  For each
paper, an abstract  must be submitted by March  2nd, 2014. Papers must
be   formatted   according  to   Springer’s   LNCS  style   guidelines
(http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0) and not
exceed  the page limit.  The submission  is to  be done  via EasyChair

submissions will  be refereed, and the conference  proceedings will be
published  by Springer  in  the  LNCS/LNAI series  -  both online  and
printed. At least one author  of each accepted paper must register for
the conference and present the paper there.
