CALL FOR PAPERS
Eighteenth UK Workshop on Case-Based Reasoning (UKCBR 2013)
10 December 2013, Cambridge, UK
*** Submission date: 7 October 2013 ***
Submissions are invited for the 18th UK Workshop on Case-Based Reasoning. The workshop is a quite 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-2013 conference on artificial intelligence and its applications.
AI-2013 is the thirty-third SGAI International Conference on Innovative Techniques and Applications of Artificial Intelligence. The venue for the Workshop and AI-2013 will again be Peterhouse College. The workshop will run in parallel with the other workshops on the first day of the conference.
A special rate will be available for those attending AI-2013 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.

* the theory of CBR
* methods for case adaptation, indexing, retrieval, representation, explanation, and provenance
