About these proceedings


This book is the proceedings of the Second International Conference on Conceptual Structures, ICCS '94, held at College Park, Maryland, USA in August 1994.
This proceedings presents, on an international scale, up-to- the-minute research results on theoretical and applicational aspects of conceptual graphs, particularly on the use of contexts in knowledge representation. The concept of contexts is highly important for all kinds of knowledge-intensive systems. The book is organized into sections on natural language understanding, rational problem solving, conceptual graph theory, contexts and canons, and data modeling.
