The Sixth International Conference on

Concept Lattices and Their Applications

was held in:

Olomouc, Czech Republic October 21–23, 2008

CLA 2008 was jointly organized by Palacky University, Olomouc, Czech Republic and State University of New York at Binghamton, USA

What is CLA?

CLA is an international conference dedicated to formal concept analysis (FCA) and areas closely related to FCA such as data mining, information retrieval, knowledge management, data and knowledge engineering, logic, algebra and lattice theory. CLA provides a forum for researchers, practitioners, and students. The program of CLA consists of invited plenary talks, regular talks, and poster sessions. Papers in all areas relevant to theory and applications of FCA are solicited.

Those areas include but are not restricted to:

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

All papers will be judged based on their technical merits, originality, relevance to areas of interest, and presentation clarity. Papers should describe original work that has not been published before, is not under review elsewhere, and will not be submitted elsewhere during CLA 2008's review period. Selected papers accepted to CLA 2008 will be invited to further revise and extend their work in a special issue of a well-established journal (details will come soon).
