Abstract
Among many other knowledge representations formalisms, Ontologiesand Formal Concept Analysis (FCA) aim at modeling 'concepts'. Wediscuss how these two formalisms may complement another from anapplication point of view. In particular, we will see how FCA canbe used to support Ontology Engineering, and how ontologies can beexploited in FCA applications. The interplay of FCA and ontologiesis studied along the life cycle of an ontology: (i) FCA can support the building of the ontology as a learning technique. (ii) The established ontology can be analyzed and navigated by using techniques of FCA. (iii) Last but not least, the ontology may be used to improve an FCA application.
