The 3rd International Workshop

Formal Concept Analysis for Knowledge Discovery


Formal concepts proved to be of big importance for knowledge discovery, both as a tool for concise representation of association rules and a tool for clustering and constructing taxonomies. The FCA4KD workshop aims at bringing together researchers working on diverse aspects of FCA-based knowledge extraction with the applications to fields like Computer and Information Science, Linguistics, Life and Social Sciences, Bioengineering, Chemistry, etc.

Topics of Interest

Main topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • foundations
  • concept lattices and related structures
  • attribute implications and data dependencies
  • data preprocessing
  • redundancy and dimensionality reduction
  • information retrieval
  • classification
  • clustering
  • association rules and other data dependencies
  • ontologies

Paper Submission and Publication

Papers may be submitted in PDF or Postscript format. Papers need to be formatted using the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science style.

The submission is to be done via EasyChair.

Participant registration

If you wish to participate in the Workshop as the guest or speaker please fill the registration form

You can also apply for the visitor’s pass to enter HSE building there.
