30th International Conference on Inductive Logic Programming, ILP2020-21 @ IJCLR


Inductive Logic Programming (ILP) is a subfield of machine learning, focusing on learning logical representations from relational data. The ILP conference series, started in 1991, is the premier international forum for learning from structured or semi-structured relational data, multi-relational learning and data mining. Originally focusing on the induction of logic programs, over the years it has expanded its research horizon significantly and welcomes contributions to all aspects of learning in logic, statistical relational learning, graph and tree mining, learning in other (non-propositional) logic-based knowledge representation frameworks, exploring intersections to statistical learning and other probabilistic approaches.


Call for Papers


Dates for paper submissions to ILP in the context of IJCLR's Conference Track will be announced in time. We currently invite authors to submit their papers to IJCLR's Journal Track, in one of the subsequent cut-off dates. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • 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.
