This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 15th International Conference on Conceptual Structures, ICCS 2007, held in Sheffield, UK in July 2007.The 28 revised full papers and 13 revised short papers presented together with 4 invited papers and 1 introductory talk were carefully reviewed and selected from about 60 submissions. A special focus is given to application of conceptual structures in business and technological settings; other papers cover research into conceptual structures, which is supported by mathematical and computational theory, including formal concept analysis, algorithm design and graph theory, and a variety of software tools. The papers are organized in topical sections on conceptual graphs, formal concept analysis, and conceptual structures.
