Conceptual Structures in LEADing and Best Enterprise Practices

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 8577)


Conceptual Structures, namely Conceptual Graphs (CGs) and Formal Concept Analysis (FCA) are beginning to make an impact in Industry. This is evidenced in LEAD as it seeks to provide its 3100+ industry practitioners in many Fortune 500 and public organisations with capabilities that can handle ontology and semantics. The existing ontology and semantics work in LEAD, supported by the Global University Alliance, is described and how CGs, FCA and their tools (e.g. CoGui, CG-FCA) enhance this endeavour.
