The potentials of formal concept analysis (FCA) for information retrieval (IR) have been highlighted by a number of research studies since its inception. The growth of the web has favoured the emergence of new search applications. In this paper, we will focus on the unique features of FCA for searching in distributed information and for reducing the size of the set information. The development of a FCA-based applications for distributed information returns a major gain and the obtained results are promising. This study has several perspectives for real and fuzzy data.
