Call for Papers ICCBR 2014
22nd International Conference on Case-Based Reasoning
29th September – 1st October 2014, Cork, Ireland
The ICCBR 2014 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. ICCBR is the leading international meeting on case-based reasoning (CBR). It aims to promote research in CBR among researchers, practitioners and engineers of related disciplines.
In order to expand the frontiers of CBR as a scientific field, we would like to (1) emphasize the connections between CBR and related areas, and (2) explore new problems and industrial solutions. A primary objective of ICCBR 2014 is to encourage new members to join the CBR community and regularly participate in this premier CBR conference.
ICCBR 2014 Program Highlights
ICCBR 2014 will hold the 6th 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 7th Computer Cooking Contest (CCC) aims to attract new people to deal with AI technologies such as case-based reasoning, semantic technologies, information retrieval and information extraction. It is sponsored by Attensity, with a small number of travel bursaries to be awarded to some of the finalists. The CCC is an open competition. Any individual, student, research group and professional is invited to submit software to the three challenges of this year. See the CCC-14 website for more information: http://liris.cnrs.fr/ccc/ccc2014/
ICCBR 2014 invites proposals for full day or half-day workshops as part of the Workshop Program. ICCBR 2014 workshops 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 workshops have included: WebCBR, health care, textual CBR, computer games, process-oriented CBR, context awareness, and human-centered and cognitive approaches to CBR, uncertainty, and knowledge discovery.
Main Technical Program Paper Submission
Submission deadline: May 11, 2014

Camera ready copy due: July 1st, 2014
Conference dates: September 29 - October 1, 2014
The ICCBR 2014 Program Committee invites submissions of original theoretical research, applied research and deployed application papers on all aspects of Case-Based Reasoning. The areas of interest covered by ICCBR 2014 include, but are not limited to:
• Foundations of Case Based Reasoning
• Lazy learning, instance-based and case-based learning
• Similarity measures, case retrieval and indexing
• Case reuse, adaptation and combination
• Case authoring, knowledge modeling and visualization
• Explanations, confidence and uncertainty in CBR
• Analogical reasoning, cognitive models, and creative reasoning
• Data and text mining with case-based systems
• Textual CBR (including links with IR, NLP and text mining)
• CBR architecture and development frameworks
• Agent based and Distributed CBR
• Experience-based knowledge management
• Lessons learnt and best practices in CBR systems development
• CBR for planning, scheduling, design and classification
• Adaptive interfaces, user modeling and personalization in CBR
• Case-based recommender systems
• CBR in the Semantic Web and developments in WebCBR
• Large Scale CBR and massive case bases
• AI and Games using CBR
• Fielded applications of CBR
All accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings published by Springer Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence series. (www.springer.com/lncs).
Each submission must be identified as theoretical/methodological research, applied research, or deployed application paper and will be reviewed using criteria appropriate to its category. The criteria are as follows:
a) Theoretical & Methodological research: Scientific significance, originality, technical quality, and clarity
b) Applied research: Significance for scientific research or innovative commercial deployment; originality; technical quality; and clarity
c) Deployed application: Demonstrated practical, social, environmental or economic significance; originality; treatment of issues of engineering, management & user acceptance; and clarity.
Authors must submit a full paper by the conference paper submission deadline. ICCBR 2014 is employing the EasyChair conference system, and submissions must be made via the ICCBR 2014 EasyChair Conference. Detailed submission instructions will be made available on the ICCBR 2014 web site.
Interested authors must format their papers according to the Springer LNCS formatting guidelines. This format is required for both the initial submission and the final camera-ready copy. Papers (submitted and final) will be no longer than 15 pages. All submissions are due May 11th, 2014.
Papers will be considered for poster and oral presentation at the conference based on the above reviewing criteria. Authors' instructions along with LaTeX (preferred) and Word macro files are available on the web at Springer's Information for LNCS Authors page (http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0).
Authors of accepted papers are required to transfer their copyrights to Springer (copyright form) via email to both program chairs. All submissions are required to be in electronic format.
Multiple Submission Policy:
Papers submitted to other conferences or journals must state this fact. If a paper will appear in another conference or journal, it must be withdrawn from ICCBR 2014. This restriction does not apply to papers submitted to specialized workshops without archival proceedings.
Author Registration Policy:
In order for a paper to appear in the proceedings, at least one of the authors must register for the conference by the camera-ready copy deadline.
