A File System Based on Concept Analysis

Sébastien Ferré
Olivier Ridoux


We present the design of a file system whose organization is based on Concept Analysis «à la Wille-Ganter». The aim is to combine querying and navigation facilities in one formalism. The file system is supposed to offer a standard interface but the interpretation of common notions like directories is new. The contents of a file system is interpreted as a Formal Context, directories as Formal Concepts, and the sub-directory relation as Formal Concepts inclusion. We present an organization that allows for an efficient implementation of such a Conceptual File System.
