Call for Papers

Submissions are invited for the 13th UK Workshop on Case-Based Reasoning. This 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 British Computer Society SGAI AI-2008 conference on artificial intelligence and its applications.

AI-2008 is the Twenty-eighth SGAI International Conference on Innovative Techniques and Applications of Artificial Intelligence. This year the venue for the Workshop and AI-2008 will be Peterhouse College. The workshop will run in parallel with the other AI- 2008 Workshops on the first day of the conference.

A special rate will be available for those attending AI-2008 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
- 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 CBR
- novel applications of CBR

Journal Publication

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