About ICCS :

The International Conferences on Conceptual Structures (ICCS) focus on
the formal analysis and representation of conceptual knowledge, at the
crossroads of artificial intelligence, human cognition, computational
linguistics, and related areas of computer science and cognitive
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. With the rise of quasi-autonomous AI, graph-based
representations provide a vehicle for making machine cognition explicit
to its human users. Conversely, graphical and graph-based models can
provide a rigorous way of expressing intuitive notions in computable
frameworks. The aim of the ICCS 2019 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.

The conference welcomes contributions from a modelling, application and
theoretical viewpoint :

- Modelling results will investigate concrete real world needs for
graph-based representation, for example (but not limited to) how human
cognition can be mapped onto and facilitated by graphical
representations, 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, 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. Where appropriate, the graph-based
solutions are compared to other possible solutions.

- 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.
