2Priss, U.: Facet-like structures in computer science.
In: Axiomathes. 18(2008) no.2, S.243-255.
Abstract: This paper discusses how facet-like structures occur as a commonplace feature in a variety of computer science disciplines as a means for structuring class hierarchies. The paper then focuses on a mathematical model for facets (and class hierarchies in general), called formal concept analysis, and discusses graphical representations of faceted systems based on this model.

4Priss, U.: ¬A semiotic-conceptual framework for knowledge representation.
In: Knowledge organization and the global information society: Proceedings of the 8th International ISKO Conference 13-16 July 2004, London, UK. Ed.: I.C. McIlwaine. Würzburg : Ergon Verlag, 2004. S.91-96.
(Advances in knowledge organization; vol.9)
Abstract: This paper argues that a semiotic-conceptual framework is suitable for knowledge representation because it combines conceptual structures with semiotic aspects. The advantages of such a framework are discussed and explained using an example from an ontology language.

Abstract: This paper argues that the Semantic Web needs to incorporate both formal and associative structures (and possibly a multitude of other structures and strategies) to be successful. The arguments for this claim are based on an observation of successes and failures in the areas of artificial intelligence (AI) and natural language processing (NLP). 1. Introduction The WWW provides numerous challenges for information and knowledge processing activities. Information may be available but not accessible or retrievable because of language barriers or insufficient search strategies. Data mining techniques may discover implicit information in explicit data but these techniques do not necessarily guarantee that the discovered information is relevant, significant and trustworthy. During the last several decades hundreds or thousands of computer and information scientists have developed probably thousands of natural language processing and artificial intelligence techniques that were aimed at solving problems related to intelligent information processing only to encounter more and more new obstacles along the way. The latest solution, the Semantic Web, appears as an open declaration of defeat: since natural language processing and AI techniques did not provide sufficient results, it is now proposed to put the burden an the shoulder of the authors of webpages who are expected to populate their pages with metadata and additional markup. Metadata is essentially a new form of controlled vocabulary; markup - at least in the form of XML, XSL, etc - is essentially a programming language. Existing studies of the use of controlled vocabularies and indexing practices in information science and studies of teaching programming languages to "everybody" (Python, 2002) have shown that both are difficult and full of unsolved problems. This can further dampen the expectations of the success of the Semantic Web. In contrast to machines and despite numerous inter-cultural conflicts around the world, humans do communicate surprisingly successfully even across national, linguistic and cultural boundaries. The question then arises: why are humans successful at information processing tasks such as information integration, translation and communication, which computers find so difficult? One obvious answer is that human cognition is embodied and grounded in our shared experiences of living in the same world. AI researchers have theoretically explored the idea of symbol grounding in the early 1990's but so far, connectionist artificial agents with perceptual interfaces have not been integrated with a large-scale capability of symbolic representations.

Abstract: Controlled vocabulary and fixed citation order are two of the mechanisms used to effect collocation in traditional bibliographic classification schemes. Analysis of the rationale underlying application of each of these mechanisms provides a framework for the development of nontraditional approaches to the organization of resources available an the World Wide Web. When supported by an extralinguistic faceted vocabulary of concepts, this framework facilitates construction and implementation of flexible, dynamic indexing systems that can be applied in the design of electronic information systems and the organization of Web-based knowledge resources.

Abstract: This paper presents an abstract formalization of the notion of "facets". Facets are relational structures of units, relations and other facets selected for a certain purpose. Facets can be used to structure large knowledge representation systems into a hierarchical arrangement of consistent and independent subsystems (facets) that facilitate flexibility and combinations of different viewpoints or aspects. This paper describes the basic notions, facet characteristics and construction mechanisms. It then explicates the theory in an example of a faceted information retrieval system (FaIR)

8Priss, U.: Lattice-based information retrieval.
In: Knowledge organization. 27(2000) no.3, S.132-142.
Abstract: A lattice-based model for information retrieval was suggested in the 1960's but has been seen as a theoretical possibility hard to practically apply ever since. This paper attempts to revive the lattice model and demonstrate its applicability in an information retrieval system, FalR, that incorporates a graphical representation of a faceted thesaurus. It shows how Boolean queries can be lattice-theoretically related to the concepts of the thesaurus and visualized within the thesaurus display. An advantage of FaIR is that it allows for a high level of transparency of the system, which can be controlled by the user

(Advances in knowledge organization; vol.7)
Abstract: This paper describes a qualitative methodology for comparing and analyzing classification schemes. Theoretical facets are modeled as concept lattices in the sense of formal concept analysis and are used as 'ground' on which the underlying conceptual facets of a classification scheme are visually represented as 'figures'.

Abstract: Even for the experienced information professional, designing an efficient multi-purpose information access structure can be a very difficult task. This paper argues for the use of a faceted thesaurus as the basis for organizing a small-scale institutional website. We contend that a faceted approach to knowledge organization can make the process of organization less random and more manageable. We begin by reporting on an informal survey of three institutional websites. This study underscores the problems of organization that can impact access to information. We then formalize the terminology of faceted thesauri and demonstrate its application with several examples. ; The writers show that a faceted navigation structure makes web sites easier to use. They begin by analyzing the web sites of three library and information science faculties, and seeing if the sites easily provide the answers to five specific questions, e.g., how the school ranks in national evaluations. (It is worth noting that the web site of the Faculty of Information Studies and the University of Toronto, where this bibliography is being written, would fail on four of the five questions.) Using examples from LIS web site content, they show how facets can be related and constructed, and use concept diagrams for illustration. They briefly discuss constraints necessary when joining facets: for example, enrolled students can be full- or part-time, but prospective and alumni students cannot. It should not be possible to construct terms such as "part-time alumni" (see Yannis Tzitzikas et al, below in Background). They conclude that a faceted approach is best for web site navigation, because it can clearly show where the user is in the site, what the related pages are, and how to get to them. There is a short discussion of user interfaces, and the diagrams in the paper will be of interest to anyone making a facet-based web site. This paper is clearly written, informative, and thought-provoking.

11Priss, U.: Faceted knowledge representation.
Abstract: Faceted Knowledge Representation provides a formalism for implementing knowledge systems. The basic notions of faceted knowledge representation are "unit", "relation", "facet" and "interpretation". Units are atomic elements and can be abstract elements or refer to external objects in an application. Relations are sequences or matrices of 0 and 1's (binary matrices). Facets are relational structures that combine units and relations. Each facet represents an aspect or viewpoint of a knowledge system. Interpretations are mappings that can be used to translate between different representations. This paper introduces the basic notions of faceted knowledge representation. The formalism is applied here to an abstract modeling of a faceted thesaurus as used in information retrieval.

12Priss, U.: Description logic and faceted knowledge representation.
Abstract: The term "facet" was introduced into the field of library classification systems by Ranganathan in the 1930's [Ranganathan, 1962]. A facet is a viewpoint or aspect. In contrast to traditional classification systems, faceted systems are modular in that a domain is analyzed in terms of baseline facets which are then synthesized. In this paper, the term "facet" is used in a broader meaning. Facets can describe different aspects on the same level of abstraction or the same aspect on different levels of abstraction. The notion of facets is related to database views, multicontexts and conceptual scaling in formal concept analysis [Ganter and Wille, 1999], polymorphism in object-oriented design, aspect-oriented programming, views and contexts in description logic and semantic networks. This paper presents a definition of facets in terms of faceted knowledge representation that incorporates the traditional narrower notion of facets and potentially facilitates translation between different knowledge representation formalisms. A goal of this approach is a modular, machine-aided knowledge base design mechanism. A possible application is faceted thesaurus construction for information retrieval and data mining. Reasoning complexity depends on the size of the modules (facets). A more general analysis of complexity will be left for future research.
13Priss, U.: ¬A graphical interface for conceptually navigating faceted thesauri.
In: Structures and relations in knowledge organization: Proceedings of the 5th International ISKO-Conference, Lille, 25.-29.8.1998. Ed.: W. Mustafa el Hadi et al. Würzburg : Ergon, 1998. S.184-190.
(Advances in knowledge organization; vol.6)
Abstract: This paper describes a graphical interface for the navigation and construction of faceted thesauri that is based on formal concept analysis. Each facet of a thesaurus is represented as a mathematical lattice that is further subdivided into components. Users can graphically navigate through the Java implementation of the interface by clicking on terms that connect facets and components. Since there are many applications for thesauri in the knowledge representation field, such a graphical interface has the potential of being very useful
