FCA software interoperability

The FCA community has produced a fair amount of FCA software, but more work needs to be done with respect to improving the interoperability among FCA tools and between FCA tools and other tools for data storage and exploration (spreadsheets, databases, mathematical and statistical tools, etc).

FCA Software Interoperability Workshop at the CLA 2010 Conference

"This Workshop will provide a discussion forum for researchers and developers who are interested in the integration of FCA and Computer Algebra System software, such as Sage and Matlab, or other mainstream tools (database, spreadsheet, ERP ...). The purpose is to determine what the FCA community can do to improve the interoperability of FCA tools with other existing tools in order to make it easier to use FCA with such tools."

    Links to previous workshops on FCA software and Conceptual Structures Tool Interoperability (CS-TIW) can be found under Conferences/Workshops on the FCA Bibliography page.


    We have a Wiki for discussion at this address. (A copy of content from a previous wiki about FCA file formats is here.)
