 Second Notice

 Second International Conference on

 August 16-20, 1994
 University of Maryland
 College Park, MD, USA

 10th Anniversary Meeting


This year we will celebrate the tenth anniversary of "Conceptual Structures"
(Sowa, 1984) and ten years of conceptual graphs (cgs) development in
both theory and application. Outstanding speakers will give a retrospective
of the last ten years and their views on the future. A selection of
quality papers will be presented covering, among other subjects,
general problem solving, knowledge engineering, natural language
understanding, formal languages and contexts.

We anticipate that ICCS'94 will be an event you will not want to miss.
In line with our focus on future development, we shall place special
emphasis on student and first-time participants. We look forward to
welcoming you to the Washington area.
