ICCL Summer School 2006
Technische Universität Dresden
June 24 - July 8, 2006
The topic of this year's summer school is
It is common wisdom that the still growing power of
digital data processing greatly enhances the wealth of
human knowledge and will continue to do so. A
precondition for this is, however, that knowledge is
encoded and represented in a computer-accessible manner,
such that it can be algorithmically processed. This
requires, in turn, the use of appropriate formal
structures for knowledge representation and knowledge
processing. Such structures, called `Knowledge
Structures', will be the topic of this year's ICCL summer
school. There are many approaches to this topic ranging
from formal logics, to mathematical and data mining
methods. The summer school's focus is on the following
-- Logic, with Description Logic and Inductive Logic
-- Cluster Methodology, with applications to text
clustering and Semantic Web mining, and
-- Formal Concept Analysis, with applications to
Ontologies and Machine Learning.
The basic ideas of these areas will be introduced and
discussed, with the aim of providing a broad
methodological repertoire for future research and
If you want to attend the summer school, we'd prefer that
you register by March 18, 2006.
(See the online registration on the web page mentioned
For all who want to apply for a grant, this deadline is
After March 18, 2006, registration will be possible as
long as there are vacant places.
(Since we intend to restrict participation to about 60
people, in case of excessive demand, we will have to
close the registration to the summer school.)
People applying until March 18, 2006, and applying for a
grant will be informed about respective decisions on
grants by end of March 2006.
We ask for a participation fee of 150 EUR.
A limited number of grants may be available, please indicate
in your application if the only possibility for you to
participate is via a grant. Applications for grants must
include an estimate of travel costs and they should be sent
together with the registration.
It will be possible for some participants to present
their research work during a small workshop integrated in
the summer school. If you would like to do so, please
register by means of the online workshop registration
form on the web page mentioned above: (The title of your
proposed talk, and, in addition, an extended abstract or
a full paper of at most 10 pages in postscript or pdf
format must be submit by March 18, 2006.)
A program committee consisting of the summer school
lecturers will select among the submissions.
Notification of acceptance of a talk at the integrated
workshop will be by April 24, 2006.
Please note that participation at the summer school is a
prerequisite for participation at the workshop.
