ILP Best Paper Awards



Best paper awards are an old tradition for the ILP conference, constantly supported over the years by Springer and the Machine Learning journal. This year we have three best paper awards, one for a best ILP paper and two for the best student papers.

  • The Best ILP paper was selected from the ILP papers submitted to the IJCLR’s journal track (the special issue on Learning & Reasoning) and the ILP conference track. It is accompanied by a 1,000 euros prize, kindly provided by Springer.

    The ILP best paper award goes to:

    Tony Ribeiro, Maxime Folschette, Morgan Magnin and Katsumi Inoue
    Learning Any Memoryless Discrete Semantics for Dynamical Systems Represented by Logic Programs

  • The first best student paper was selected from the ILP papers submitted to IJCLR’s journal track and the second one was selected from the papers submitted to the ILP conference track. Each award is accompanied by a 750 euros prize, jindly provided by the Machine Learning journal.
