What is CLA?

CLA is an international conference dedicated to formal concept analysis (FCA) and areas closely 
related to FCA such as data mining, information retrieval, knowledge management, data and 
knowledge engineering, logic, algebra and lattice theory. CLA provides a forum for researchers, 
practitioners, and students. The program of CLA consists of invited plenary talks, regular talks, 
and poster sessions. Papers in all areas relevant to theory and applications of FCA are solicited.

Those areas include but are not restricted to:

* foundations,
* concept lattices and related structures,
* attribute implications and data dependencies,
* algorithms and complexity,
* visualization,
* data preprocessing,
* redundancy and dimensionality reduction,
* information retrieval,
* classification,
* clustering,
* association rules and other data dependencies,
* ontologies,
* applications.
