CALL FOR PAPERS
Third Conceptual Structures Tool Interoperability Workshop (CS-TIW 2008)
"Conceptual Structures Tools and the Web"
July 7th, 2008, INRA Toulouse, France
==collocated with the 16th International Conference on Conceptual
Structures (ICCS 2008)==
Workshop homepage: http://www.kde.cs.uni-kassel.de/ws/cs-tiw2008
In the past years the Conceptual Structures community has focused on
researching different models for representing and reasoning about
knowledge. These models, based on graph structures (e.g. Formal
Concept Analysis (FCA), Conceptual Graphs (CG), etc.) have been
implemented in various Conceptual Structures tools. The advantage of
such tools relies on the visual appeal of the graph structures and,
more importantly, on the potential of graph based optimisations.
However, such tools in isolation are not sufficient to build
comprehensive, effective knowledge systems that are useful to
communities and organizations. To fulfill this purpose,
interoperability is essential, both with other conceptual and semantic
technology tools but also with information systems.
The ongoing goal of this workshop is to explore how to improve the
interoperability of Conceptual Structures (CS) tools amongst each
other and with other established knowledge representation and
In particular, the focus of this year's workshop is the interaction of
such tools with Web technologies. As central to this task, we would
like to address the following questions:
* How can CS tools be incorporated and integrated into Web
applications: who would benefit from this integration and in which way?
* How can CS tools be used to facilitate / enhance /
understand human access to the Web?
* How can CS tools benefit from the Web, i.e., from its
knowledge resources and services?
The workshop wants to bring together researchers from both communities
- the Web and the CG/FCA community. The goal is to begin a fruitful
discussion on the above mentioned questions and to raise the mutual
awareness of ongoing research and existing technologies from which
both sides could benefit. We particularly encourage the submission of
short papers: preliminary system presentations and relevant position
papers as part of the PhD? symposium and the Panel Session (see

Submitted papers must be in English and not submitted for publication
elsewhere. We invite the following types of contributions:
These will concern novel work in progress and/or original research
results. Maximum length: 12 pages (Springer format). Accepted papers
will be presented orally at the workshop.
These will be report preliminary work or will reflect on and discuss
new trends and developments. Maximum length: 6 pages (Springer
format). Short paper will also be presented orally in two sessions:
PhD? Symposium and Pannel Session.
Submitted papers will be peer-reviewed and selected on the basis of
these reviews. Both long and short papers will be printed in the
workshop proceedings (available online and as hardcopies).
