9th International Conference
On Conceptual Structures
Broadening the Base
July 30 to August 3, 2001
Stanford University, California, USA
Sponsored by the Stanford Knowledge Systems Lab
and the Center for the Study of Language and Information
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.
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,
including formal concept analysis, description logics, situation theory,
discourse representation theory, SNePS, and other related techniques.
Papers for ICCS'01 are invited on the following topics: conceptual
structures (theory, applications, and experience with case studies);
natural language processing with emphasis on semantics and pragmatics;
conceptual analysis, modeling, representation, and visualization;
knowledge acquisition; and the theory and applications of ontology.
Comparisons of methods and representations on the basis of reasoning
ability, expressiveness, ease of use, and computational performance
ICCS 2001 will hold a joint session with the
Workshop on Description Logics,
which will be held at Stanford from August 1st to 3rd.
We encourage authors to submit papers to the joint session.
In addition to the joint session with DL 2001, the ICCS 2001 conference
will include workshops on Natural Language Semantics, PORT Semantic Web,
Additionally, ICCS is co-located with the Semantic Web Workshop of
the DARPA DAML Program and the OntoWeb Network.
