    This volume constitutes the proceedings of the Seventh International
    Conference on Flexible Query Answering Systems, FQAS 2006, held in
    Milan, Italy, on June 7--10, 2006. FQAS is the premier conference
    for researchers and practitioners concerned with the vital task of
    providing easy, flexible, and intuitive access to information for
    every type of need. This multidisciplinary conference draws on
    several research areas, including information retrieval, database
    management, information filtering, knowledge representation, soft
    computing, management of multimedia information, and human-computer
    interaction. The overall theme of the FQAS conferences is innovative
    query systems aimed at providing easy, flexible, and intuitive
    access to information. Such systems are intended to facilitate
    retrieval from information repositories such as databases,
    libraries, and the World-Wide Web. These repositories are typically
    equipped with standard query systems which are often inadequate, and
    the focus of FQAS is the development of query systems that are more
    expressive, informative, cooperative, and productive. These
    proceedings contain contributions from invited speakers and 53
    original papers out of about 100 submissions, relating to the topic
    of users posing queries and systems producing answers. The papers
    cover the fields: Database Management, Information Retrieval, Domain
    Modeling, Knowledge Representation and Ontologies, Knowledge
    Discovery and Data Mining, Artificial Intelligence, Classical and
    Non-classical Logics, Computational Linguistics and Natural Language
    Processing, Multimedia Information Systems, and Human--Computer
    Interaction, including reports of interesting applications. We wish
    to thank the contributors for their excellent papers and the
    referees, publisher, and sponsors for their effort. Special thanks
    also to the invited speakers, members of the Advisory Board, and
    members of the Program Committee. They made the success of FQAS
    2006 possible.
