Abstract : Recent advances in data and knowledge engineering have emphasized the need for formal concept analysis (FCA) tools taking into account structured data. There are a few adaptations of the classical FCA methodology for handling contexts holding on complex data formats, e.g. graph-based or relational data. In this paper, relational concept analy- sis (RCA) is proposed, as an adaptation of FCA for analyzing ob jects described both by binary and relational attributes. The RCA process takes as input a collection of contexts and of inter-context relations, and yields a set of lattices, one per context, whose concepts are linked by relations. Moreover, a way of representing the concepts and relations ex- tracted with RCA is proposed in the framework of a description logic. The RCA process has been implemented within the Galicia platform, offering new and efficient tools for knowledge and software engineering.
