 The SECOND INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON CONCEPTUAL STRUCTURES
 ICCS'94
 August 16-20, 1994
 University of Maryland College Park, MD, USA

 ADVANCE PROGRAM
 10th Anniversary Meeting


 WELCOME TO ICCS'94

ICCS'94 marks a turning point in the developmental history of conceptual
graphs (cgs), a representational language derived from John Sowa's
"Conceptual Structures" (Addison-Wesley, 1984). Cgs consist of a
logic with a graph notation and integrate features from semantic net
and frame representations.

Researchers around the world have applied cgs and extended the theory
in many domains. As we move into our second decade, we invite
you to hear from our guest speakers a historical retrospective
of cgs successes and an analysis of the challenges to be faced in the
nineties. Quality papers given by a selection of international
researchers will present recent results in the application of
cgs and the extension of the theory in variant domains including
NLU, database modeling and knowledge representation especially with
respect to contexts.

We anticipate ICCS'94 will be an event not to be missed.
In accord with our anniversary theme of future challenges,
special emphasis will be placed on student and first-time participants.
We look forward to welcoming you to the capital area and to ICCS'94.
