Call for Papers: Special Issue of Discrete Applied Mathematics for CLA 2014


Formal Concept Analysis is a mathematical theory formalizing aspects of human conceptual thinking by means of lattice theory. As such, it constitutes a theoretically well-founded, practically proven, human-centered approach to data science and has been continuously contributing valuable insights, methodologies and algorithms to the scientific community.

The International Conference Concept Lattices and Their Applications (CLA) is being organized since 2002 with the aim of providing a forum for researchers involved in all aspects of the study of FCA, from theory to implementations and practical applications. Previous years’ conferences took place in Horní Bečva, Ostrava, Olomouc (all Czech Republic), Hammamet (Tunisia), Montpellier (France), Olomouc (Czech Republic), Sevilla (Spain), Nancy (France), Fuengirola (Spain), and La Rochelle (France). The eleventh edition of CLA was held in Košice, Slovakia from October 7 to 10, 2014. The event was organized and hosted by the Institute of Computer Science at Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice.

We hereby cordially invite authors of CLA 2014 publications as well as other FCA researchers to contribute to this special issue of Discrete Applied Mathematics. Submissions should relate to the themes of the conference, including but 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.

This is an open call; submissions of contributions not presented at CLA 2014 are also welcome. Contributions arising from papers given at the conference should be substantially extended, and should cite the conference paper where appropriate. All articles will be thoroughly refereed according to the high standards of Discrete Applied Mathematics.

The full papers must be submitted through the Elsevier Editorial System ( When submitting your paper, be sure to specify that the paper is a contribution for the Special Issue of CLA 2014, so that your paper will be assigned to the guest editors. To ensure that all manuscripts are correctly identified for inclusion into the special issue, it is important to select SI: CLA'14 when reaching the “Article Type” step in the submission process. Please see the Author Instructions on the site if you have not yet submitted a paper through this web-based system.

The deadline for submission is January 31, 2016. Accepted papers will be published online individually, before print publication.

We are looking forward to receiving your contribution.

The Guest Editors,
Karell Bertet
