This volume contains revised and expanded versions of papers presented at the Seventh Annual Workshop on Conceptual Graphs, held at New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, and sponsored by the American Association for Artificial Intelligence and the NMSU Computer Science Department. The contents of the volume fall in the areas of representation issues, reasoning, data modeling and databases, algorithms and tools, and applications and natural language. One of the highlights reported in the volume is the landmark meeting of the first PEIRCE Project Workshop. The PEIRCE Project aims to build a state-of-the-art, industrial strength conceptual graphs workbench.
