      8th European Conference on Case-Based Reasoning ECCBR 2006

      Ölüdeniz/Fethiye, Turkey
      4-7 September 2006


      Paper Submission Deadline: 13 February 2006


      ECCBR 2006 is the 8th European Conference on Case-Based Reasoning
      following a series of successful European conferences/workshops.
      This four-day conference will be held in the conference center of
      the Lykiaworld Resort hotel in Ölüdeniz/Fethiye, Turkey.

      The ECCBR Industry Day starts the program, followed on the second
      day by workshops devoted to specific areas of interest to the CBR
      community. The remaining two days feature invited talks,
      presentations and posters on both theoretical and applied research
      in CBR. Announcements concerning these events will be posted at
      the website.

      Submission Topics
      The ECCBR 2006 Program Committee invites submissions of original
      research and application papers on all aspects of Case-Based
      Reasoning. We especially encourage submissions on new areas. Example
      submission areas include, but are not limited to:

      * Case and knowledge representation, acquisition, modeling,
      visualization, maintenance and management for CBR
      * CBR system design issues (e.g., indexing, retrieval, similarity
      assessment, and adaptation)
      * System architectures and integration of CBR with other methods
      * Collaborative agent architectures involving CBR
      * Learning and knowledge acquisition for CBR knowledge containers
      * Analogical reasoning, cognitive models, and creative reasoning
      approaches based on CBR
      * Formal, empirical, and psychological evaluations of CBR models
      and systems
      * Methodologies for developing and maintaining CBR applications
      * Lazy- (case/instance/memory-based) learning methods
      * Case-based approaches to planning, scheduling, design and robot
      * Applications of CBR (e.g., in customer support, education,
      electronic commerce, pattern recognition, image processing, legal
      reasoning, manufacturing and medicine)
      * Human Computer Interaction: Adaptive interfaces, user modeling,
      customization and personalization using CBR
      * CBR-related areas (e.g., corporate memories, decision support,
      information retrieval, knowledge discovery, data mining, knowledge
      and experience management, software reuse and engineering redesign)
      * Computer models of case-based argumentation
      * Intelligent tutoring systems teaching or employing CBR
      * Explanations and CBR
      * Context and CBR
      * Peer-to-Peer Networks and CBR
      * CBR in the Semantic Web

      Papers may be accepted for presentation as talks, or as posters.

      All accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings

      category. Review criteria for research papers will include scientific
      significance, originality, technical quality, and clarity. Review
      criteria for application papers will include practical or economic
      significance, potential to lead to more powerful technology, technical
      quality, and clarity.

      Submission Procedure
      Authors must submit a full paper plus a title page by the submission
      date. The title page must include: name(s) of the author(s); address,
      phone number, fax number and email of the contact person; title and
      abstract of the paper; a set of keywords; a statement whether the
      submission is to be reviewed as a research paper or an application

      The title page, the abstract and the text of the paper must be
      submitted electronically through the ECCBR web site. You will find
