We invite contributions focusing on theory and applications of Formal Concept Analysis. Papers of up to sixteen pages may be submitted in the PDF or Postscript format. For each paper, an abstract must be submitted by October 2nd, 2009. The submission is done online. Authors are requested to follow the formatting instructions for the Springer LNCS style. For more information about LNCS style click here. All submissions will be refereed, and the conference proceedings will be published by Springer in the LNCS/LNAI (Lecture Notes in Computer Science/Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence) series.

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, Linguistics, and knowledge management. Other aspects are welcome.

Instructions to Authors


For all papers, a one page abstract in PostScript or PDF format should be received by October 2nd, 2009. Abstracts should clearly state the purpose, results and conclusions of the work to be described in the final paper.

You can help the editors by following the file naming suggestions.

The electronic submission of the full paper in Postscript or PDF format must be received on or before October 15, 2009.


Papers are limited to 16 pages in Springer's format. Final acceptance will be based on the full-length paper, which if accepted, must be presented at the conference. Papers accepted for publication will appear in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence Series by Springer-Verlag.

Authors are requested to follow the formatting instructions for LNCS style, see this link for the details.

We strongly recommend the use of LATEX. Using other text formatting systems, such as MS Word, may result in technical problems, and it will be the author's task to solve these in accordance with Springer's requirements.


The scientific community interested in the ICFCA conferences has many facets, and this is one of its strengths. But although we appreciate heterogeneity as a source of ideas, we should at the same time be as communicative as possible. We therefore recommend the following guidelines for ICFCA publications:

It is understood that the basic definitions of the field are common knowledge and should not be repeated in the presentations or the papers.

Authors should not introduce new notions unless there are good reasons. In particular, they should not invent new names or symbols for well-known notions.
