21st International Conference on Conceptual Structures (ICCS 2014)

27 - 30 July, 2014

The International Conferences on Conceptual Structures (ICCS) have been held annually in Europe, Australia, and North America since 1993. Their focus is 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 Sowa in 1986. For the seventh CG workshop in 1992, the informal workshop notes were upgraded to reviewed and edited proceedings published in the Springer-Verlag series of Lecture notes in Artificial Intelligence.

In 2014 the ICCS conference 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 ICCS 2014 conference welcomes contributions that address graph-based representation and reasoning paradigms from a modelling, theoretical and application viewpoint. 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.

Due to numerous requests the ICCS paper submission has been extended by a week to the 16th of March. The abstract deadline stays the same for the 2nd of March.
