ICCS'07 Conceptual Structures: Knowledge Architectures for Smart Applications

22 - 27 July, Sheffield Hallam University, Sheffield, United Kingdom

http://www.iccs.info

The 15th International Conference on Conceptual Structures (ICCS 2007) is the latest in a series of annual conferences that have been held in Europe, Australia, and North America since 1993. At ICCS 2007, some of the world's best minds in information technology, arts, humanities and social science will converge to explore novel ways that information and communications technology (ICT) can augment human intelligence, the longstanding objective of research and development efforts dating back to the pioneers Vannevar Bush and Douglas Engelbart.

The objective driving research and development on "Conceptual Structures" is to harmonise the uniquely human ways of apprehending the world, with the power of computational information management and reasoning. Arising originally out of the work of IBM in Conceptual Graphs, and developed by learned researchers and business organisations such as Boeing and Microsoft, over the years ICCS has broadened its scope to include a wider range of theories and practices. Amongst these are Formal Concept Analysis, Description Logics, the Semantic Web, the Pragmatic Web, Ontologies, Multi-agent Systems, Concept Mapping, and more. Accordingly conceptual structures represent a family of approaches that builds on the successes of artificial intelligence, business intelligence, computational linguistics, conceptual modelling, information and web technologies, user modelling, and knowledge management.

ICCS 2007 Workshop or Tutorial Proposals are thus invited, but not limited to conceptual structures in the following topics:

KNOWLEDGE ARCHITECTURES

SMART APPLICATIONS: SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY AND SYSTEMS

SMART APPLICATIONS: ENTERPRISE, EDUCATION, SOCIETY AND GOVERNMENT

INTERACTION DESIGN, VISUALISATION, CREATIVE INDUSTRIES

The aim of the ICCS 2007 workshops and tutorials is to provide a forum for the discussion of a specific topic from the field of ICT between international groups of researchers, with reference to conceptual structures. These events will provide a platform for dissemination and exploitation of international R&D projects and business applications.

Submission Details

Proposals to organize workshop, technical sessions and Tutorials should include the following information:

  1. Name and address (+ E-mail) of the Proposer(s).
  2. Title of session.
  3. A 100-word description of the topic of the session.
  4. A short description on how the session will be advertised (in most cases, session proposers may solicit papers from colleagues and researchers whose work is known to the session proposers).
  5. A short biography of the proposer(s).

Workshop proceedings will be published in a combined ICCS 2007 Workshop Volume, with an ISBN by a reputable publisher. This will be handled by the Workshops and Tutorials Chair.

Some sessions will subsequently be considered for publication in appropriate journals as Special Issues.

Please submit your proposal by email to Babak Akhgar, Workshops and Tutorials Chair, ICCS 2007 (B.Akhgar @ shu.ac.uk) with the subject line of 'ICCS 2007 Workshop Proposal' or 'ICCS 2007 Tutorial Proposal' as appropriate.
