30th International Conference on Inductive Logic Programming
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.
- Long papers, describing original mature work containing appropriate experimental evaluation and/or representing a self-contained theoretical contribution. Accepted long paper submissions will be split in regular papers, accepted for appearing in Springer LNAI conference proceedings, and up-and-coming papers, accepted for appearing in Sun SITE Central Europe CEUR Workshop proceedings, depending on the maturity of the submitted work. Regular papers will be assigned a long time slot for presentation, while up-and-coming papers will be assigned a shorter time slot for presentation. Regular and up-and-coming papers must not exceed 15 pages, including references.
- Short papers, describing original work in progress, presenting preliminary results, brief accounts of original ideas, and other relevant work of potentially high scientific interest but not yet qualifying for the long paper category. Accepted short papers will be assigned a reduced time slot for presentation and will be published in CEUR proceedings. Short papers must not exceed 7 pages, including references.
- Late-breaking abstracts, describing ideas and proposals that the authors would like to present at the conference. Submissions will be accepted/rejected on the grounds of relevance. Accepted works will be assigned a reduced time slot and will be published on the conference website but will not appear in the conference proceedings. Late-breaking abstracts must not exceed 4 pages, including references.
- Recently published papers relevant to the ILP topics, 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. Authors of accepted papers will be assigned a reduced time slot for presentation. Accepted papers of this type will not appear in the conference proceedings, however a link to the original work will be inserted in CEUR.
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. The submission web page is currently closed and will open no earlier than April 10 2020.
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.
Regular papers will be included in the conference proceedings, to be published by Springer Verlag in the “Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence” (LNAI) Series. Regular papers must not exceed 15 pages including references.
Up-and-coming and short papers will be included in the Late Breaking Papers proceedings, to be published by Sun SITE Central Europe CEUR Workshop proceedings. Up-and-coming papers must not exceed 15 pages including references, while short papers must not exceed 7 pages including references.
Late-breaking abstracts will be published on the conference website but will not be included in the conference proceedings. Given their nature of preliminary proposals, they must be up to 4 pages including references.
A link to already published papers will be included in the Late Breaking Papers CEUR proceedings.
Authors are invited to submit high-quality work at IJCLR’s journal track on Learning & Reasoning, supported by the Machine Learning Journal. The journal track has two cut-off dates: February 15 2020 and April 15 2020. Accepted papers will be presented to IJCLR 2020 and published at the Machine Learning Journal special issue on Learning & Reasoning. More details, including formatting and submission guidelines, may be found at the journal track’s CfP.
