Call For Papers

The ICCBR-11 Program Committee invites submissions of original
theoretical research, applied research and deployed application
papers on all aspects of Case-Based Reasoning for the main
technical program.

Submission Topics incl. (but not limited to)

o Foundations of Case Based Reasoning
o Analogical reasoning, cognitive models, and creative reasoning
o Lazy-learning, instance-based and case-based learning
o Similarity Metrics, indexing, retrieval, and adaptation
o Case authoring, knowledge modelling and visualization
o Explanations, confidence and uncertainty in CBR
o Data and text mining with case-based systems
o Experience-based knowledge management
o CBR architecture and development frameworks
o Agent based, Peer-to-Peer and Distributed CBR
o Applications of CBR (e.g. in health, law, education, government)
o CBR for planning, scheduling, design, diagnosis and classification
o Adaptive interfaces, user modelling and personalization in CBR
o Case-based recommender systems
o Conversational CBR and mixed-initiative systems
o Textual CBR (including links with IR, NLP and text mining)
o CBR in the Semantic Web and developments in WebCBR
o AI and Games using CBR
o Fielded applications of CBR

We encourage papers that emphasize connections between CBR and
related areas (e.g. machine learning, semantic web), and those
that explore new problems and industrial solutions.

All accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings
published by Springer Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Artificial
Intelligence series (
Please visit the ICCBR-11 website for paper submission details.

Important Dates for Main Technical Program

o Submission deadline: 4 April 2011
o Notification of acceptance: 16 May 2011
o Camera ready copy due: 6 June 2011
o Conference dates: 12-15 September 2011

ICCBR-11 Program Highlights

Please also consider participating in some of the other events that are part of this years conference. Further details on how you can participate in these events can be found on the ICCBR-11 web site.

Doctoral Consortium: ICCBR-11 will hold the 3rd CBR Doctoral Consortium (DC) with the
following objectives: (1) To provide a supportive setting for
feedback on students' current research and guidance on future
research directions, (2) To offer each student comments and fresh
perspectives on their work from faculty and students outside
their own institution, and (3) To promote the development of a
supportive community of scholars and a spirit of collaborative
research. The DC gives early stage postgraduate students the
important opportunity to discuss their research ideas and get
very valuable feedback.

Computer Cooking Contest: The 4th Computer Cooking Contest (CCC) aims to attract interest in integrating AI and related technologies such as case-based reasoning, semantic technologies, search and information extraction.
It is sponsored by Attensity and includes a travel bursary for its finalists.
The CCC is an open competition. Any individual, student, research group and
professional is invited to submit software that creates a recipe,
such as for a single dish or even a three course menu, i.e.,
recipes for a starter, a main dish and a dessert. The input will
be a database of basic recipes from which appropriate recipes
must be selected, modified or even combined. The queries to the
system consist of a number of desired ingredients and other
requirements for the dish or menu.

Industry / Applications Track Presentations: ICCBR-11 invites submissions for a special presentation-only track of deployed applications on all aspects of Case-Based
Reasoning. The applications track provides an opportunity for
both industry and academic application developers to showcase
their work in 20-30 minute high-quality presentations, without
the need to write a paper. This event takes place on one day and
is an excellent way for industry members to interact with
students and academic researchers. Presenters can express
interest with a short description of their work (max 2 pages).
Opportunities are also available to sponsor ICCBR-11 and
have an official conference presence.

Workshops: ICCBR-11 invites proposals for full day or half day workshops as
part of the Workshop Program. ICCBR-11 workshops will provide an
informal setting in which participants will have the opportunity
to meet and discuss topics with a selected CBR focus in an
environment that encourages the exchange of ideas. Recent ICCBR
workshop focus areas have included: WebCBR, health care, textual CBR,
computer gaming, process workflows, context awareness,
uncertainty, and knowledge discovery.
