IInd All–Russian Conference “Knowledge - Ontology - Theory” (KONT-09)
with international participation
20–22 October, 2009 

First Announcement and Call for Papers

The focus of the conference is mathematical methods of data representation, data mining, construction of subject domains theories, Formal Concept Analysis, as well as methods of information extraction from texts in natural language.
All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings. We also plan to publish selected papers in a special issue of Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence.
Conference topics reflect the main stages of knowledge discovery process:

Data collection and pre-processing. Measuring. Accumulation of facts. Generation of preliminary description. Creation of empirical hypotheses. 

Discovering of regularities (knowledge) hidden in structured and unstructured data. Machine learning. Pattern recognition. Forecasting. Inductive reasoning (from numerical tables, signals, images, natural language texts, etc.).

Systematization of knowledge. Knowledge engineering. Generation of subject domain ontologies: technologies, applications.

Generation of subject domain theories. Formal Concept Analysis. Logical semantics of natural language. Fuzzy logic. Description of basic elements of a theory: axioms, hypotheses, general models, methods of analysis and synthesis.
