Agadir, une ville de rêve

Welcome to the

8th International Conference on
Formal Concept Analysis
ICFCA 2010 - Agadir,
Morocco, March 15-18, 2010

Formal Concept Analysis emerged in the 1980's from attempts to restructure lattice theory to promote better communication between lattice theorists and potential users of lattice theory. Since then Formal Concept Analysis has developed into a growing research field in its own right with a thriving theoretical community and an increasing number of applications in information and knowledge processing including vizualisation, data mining and analysis, and knowledge management.

The conference aims to unify theoretical and applied practitioners using Formal Concept Analysis drawing from the fields of Mathematics, Computer and Information Sciences, Software Engineering, as well as diverse application domains such as Linguistics or Life Sciences. Other aspects are welcome as well.

Possible topics include:

  • Mathematics
  • Computer and Information Sciences
  • Software Engineering
  • FCA theory
  • Lattice Theory
  • Data Mining
  • Association Rules
  • FCA-based Knowledge Representation
  • Data Analysis
  • Data mining in Web 2.0
  • Algorithmics
  • Logics for/and FCA
  • Analysis of Social Networks
  • Lattice Drawing
  • FCA and Software Engineering
  • FCA Tools

The conference proceedings will be published by Springer in the LNCS/LNAI (Lecture Notes in Computer Science/Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence) series.


Agadir is a city in the southwest Morocco, located on the shore of the Atlantic Ocean and at the foot of the well-known Atlas Mountain chain. It is about 100 km from Tiznit at South, 80 km from Taroudant to the East, Essaouira (173 km) up North, some 250 km to Marrakech North-East and 375 km to Ouarzazate. Agadir is an important economic and cultural region in Morocco. The region is positioned as the fastest economically growing region in Morocco with its fishery port which is ranked among the best well-known ones in the world. Agadir is known to be a seaside resort with long sandy beaches that attract visitors from around the world all year long. Agadir enjoys a moderate climate and has generally Mediterranean-like weather throughout the year.
