[DMANET] [ICFCA 2021] Call for Participation (Virtual Event): 16th International Conference on Formal Concept Analysis

16th International Conference on Formal Concept Analysis (ICFCA 2021)

June 29 -- July 2, 2021, Strasbourg, France

Web: <> Mail:


* Overview

Formal Concept Analysis emerged in the 1980's from attempts to restructure
lattice theory in order to promote better communication between lattice
theorists and potential users of lattice theory. Since its early years, Formal
Concept Analysis has developed into a research field in its own right with a
thriving theoretical community and a rapidly expanding range of applications in
information and knowledge processing including visualization, data analysis
(mining) and knowledge management and discovery.

The ICFCA conference series aims at bringing together researchers and
practitioners working on theoretical or applied aspects of Formal Concept
Analysis within major related areas such as Mathematics and Computer and
Information Sciences and their diverse applications to fields like Software
Engineering, Linguistics, Life and Social Sciences, etc.

* ICFCA 2021 Scientific Program

The program is available via and
includes works on Theory and Practice of FCA.
