30th International Conference on Inductive Logic Programming, ILP2020-21 @ IJCLR
Call for Papers
- Theory of ILP, foundations of logical & relational learning, computational learning theory.
- Learning in various logical representations and formalisms, such as logic programming & answer set programming, first-order & higher-order logic, description logic & ontologies.
- Statistical relational learning, including structure/parameter learning for probabilistic logic languages, relational probabilistic graphical models, kernel-based methods, neural- symbolic learning.
- Meta-interpretative learning & predicate invention.
- Semi-supervised & unsupervised relational learning.
- Methods for scaling-up ILP, parallel & distributed relational learning.
- Incremental & online relational learning, learning from data streams.
- Applications of ILP.
- Conference papers, describing original work with appropriate experimental evaluation and/or a self-contained theoretical contribution. Submitted conference papers should not have been published, or be under review for a journal, or another conference with published proceedings. Conference papers may be either long papers, of up to 15 pages, including references, of short papers of up to 6-9 pages, including references. Long papers should contain a substantial contribution that justifies their length, e.g. proofs of extensive experimental studies. Accepted conference papers will be published by the Springer LNAI conference proceedings.
- Late-breaking abstracts, briefly outlining novel ideas and proposals that the authors would like to present at the conference. These could include e.g. original work in progress without conclusive experimental findings, or other relevant work, not yet ready for publication. Submissions of late-breaking abstracts will be accepted/rejected on the grounds of relevance. Accepted late-breaking abstracts will be published on the conference website. Late-breaking abstracts must not exceed 4 pages, including references.
- Recently published papers relevant to ILP, or papers recently accepted for publication by a first-class conference such as ECML/PKDD, ICML, KDD, ICDM, AAAI, IJCAI, etc. or journal such as MLJ, DMKD, JMLR etc. These will be accepted/rejected on the grounds of relevance and quality of the original publication venue. For papers of this category a link to the original work will be published on the conference website. Authors should submit the abstract and the PDF file of the original submission, specifying in the abstract the original venue where the papar was accepted in addition to the acceptance date. Authors submitting a recently published paper should submit it through IJCLR's "Recently Published Papers Track" option from the submission page.
Additionally, authors of accepted papers will have the opportunity to present their papers during the joint poster sessions. At least one of the authors of accepted papers/late-breaking abstracts must register for the conference and present their work.
Submissions will be handled by EasyChair. To submit a paper to ILP, authors are invited to follow the submission link and select the ILP track. For recently published papers please use the “Recently Published Papers Track”.
Submissions must be in Springer LNCS format, according to the Springer LNCS author instructions. Already published papers should be submitted in their original format and the authors should indicate the original publication venue.
Conference papers (either short or long) will be included in the conference proceedings, to be published by Springer Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) Series.
Late Breaking abstracts will be published on the conference website. A link to recently published papers will be uploaded to the conference website.
Authors are invited to submit high-quality work at IJCLR’s journal track on Learning & Reasoning, supported by the Machine Learning Journal. The upcoming cut-off date for the journal track is June 1 2021. Accepted papers will be presented to IJCLR 2021 and published at the Machine Learning Journal special issue on Learning & Reasoning. More details, including formatting and submission guidelines, may be found here.
