Call for Papers

Submissions are invited for the 21st UK Workshop on Case-Based Reasoning. The workshop will be a relatively informal occasion where you can meet CBR colleagues and exchange news, views and opinions as well as presenting and/or learning about the work of other researchers and practitioners. As in the last few years, the workshop will again be held in Cambridge, jointly with the AI-2016 conference on artificial intelligence and its applications, organised by the Specialist Group on AI (SGAI).

AI-2016 is the thirty-sixth International Conference on Artificial Intelligence. The venue for workshop and conference will be Peterhouse College. UKCBR will run in parallel with the other AI-2016 Workshops on the first day of the conference.

A special rate will be available for those attending AI-2016 on the following two days. SGAI are also subsidising a reduced rate for non-presenting students.

A warm invitation is extended also to researchers from outside the UK to submit a paper, or otherwise attend.


Scope of the Workshop

Paper submissions are invited on any aspect of case-based reasoning. Papers on practical applications of CBR will be particularly welcome. Possible topics include, but are not restricted to:

  • the theory of CBR
  • methods for case adaptation, indexing, retrieval, representation, explanation, and provenance
  • hybrid, agent based CBR systems
  • CBR in data mining and knowledge discovery in databases
  • knowledge acquisition, modelling, and management for CBR
  • CBR in engineering, design, manufacturing
  • CBR and the Internet
  • e-Commerce applications of CBR
  • CBR and human learning
  • CBR in software engineering
  • CBR in healthcare
  • textual and Web CBR
  • CBR and the Semantic Web / Linked Data
  • reasoning aspects of CBR
  • novel applications of CBR


The accepted papers will be published as CEUR workshop proceedings at ceur-ws.org.

Journal Publication

The papers presented at each of the last nine UK CBR Workshops have been published as special editions of the BCS SGAI journal Expert Update. It is expected that this will also be the case this year.
