The 15 full papers and 5 short papers presented in this volume were carefully reviewed and selected from 36 submissions. The book also contains four invited contributions in full paper length.The field of Formal Concept Analysis (FCA) originated in the 1980s in Darmstadt as a subfield of mathematical order theory, with prior developments in other research groups. Its original motivation was to consider complete lattices as lattices of concepts, drawing motivation from philosophy and mathematics alike. FCA has since then developed into a wide research area with applications much beyond its original motivation, for example in logic, data mining, learning, and psychology.
