      CALL FOR PAPERS

      3rd Textual Case Based Reasoning Workshop TCBR06
      http://www.comp.rgu.ac.uk/staff/nw/tcbr06/index.htm

      Workshop at the 8th European Conference on Case-Based reasoning
      Sep 5th, 2006, Ölüdeniz/Fethiye, Turkey
      http://2006.eccbr.org/

      Paper Submission Deadline: 15 May 2006
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      TCBR06 is the 3rd Textual Case-Based Reasoning Workshop following
      TCBR05 at ICCBR05 and TCBR98 at AAAI98. This year TCBR06 takes
      place as part of the workshop series at the 8th European Conference
      on Case-Based reasoning ECCBR06.

      Textual Case-Based Reasoning (TCBR) applies the Case-Based Reasoning (CBR)
      problem-solving methodology to situations where experiences are
      predominantly captured in text form.
      TCBR systems, like conventional CBR systems, must also acquire
      knowledge sources to enable the key stages of problem-solving
      (Retrieve, Reuse, Revise and Retain). However, where these knowledge
      sources consists of unstructured or semi-structured text,
      the implementation of the CBR cycle is particularly challenging.

      The aim of this workshop is to provide a forum for the discussion of
      trends, research issues and practical experiences in TCBR.

      Submission Topics
      -----------------

      We are particularly interested in contributions that explore hybrid
      approaches that draw from, and extend, research in related areas
      (e.g. Information Retrieval, Natural Language Processing, Information
      Extraction and Text Mining). Both application and research paper
      submissions are welcome. Topics will include, but not be limited to, the
      following:

      - Textual case authoring (e.g. from the Web,
      from semi-structured documents).
      - Similarity measures for textual case comparison.
      - Indexing and reuse of textual cases.
      - Adaptation of textual cases.
      - Maintenance of textual case bases.
      - The relationship between textual CBR and related technologies,
      such as text mining, question-answering and dialogue systems,
      and human-language technology.
      - Automated extraction of textual knowledge sources
      (e.g. cases, similarity, thesaurus, lexicons and taxonomic information).
      - Corpora and repositories for textual cases.
      - Testing and evaluation methodologies for textual CBR systems.
      - Conversational CBR.
      - Case studies of textual CBR systems.
      - Philosophical issues (e.g. Range and scope of TCBR,
      characteristics of TCBR systems, TCBR and levels of automation)

      Format and Submission
      ---------------------

      Workshop papers should be submitted in Springer LNCS format,
      which is the format required for the final camera ready copy,
      with a maximum of 10 pages.
      Authors instructions along with LaTeX and Word macro files are
      available on the web at http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html

      Accepted workshop papers will appear in the Workshop proceedings.
      We also plan to edit a special issue of a journal to distribute the
      workshop results with a selection of the accepted contributions.

      Workshop attendees will be asked to submit a 2-paged extended
      abstract outlining relevant research activities, publications,
      and reasons for participation. These should also be submitted
      using the same LNCS format.

      Please email your submissions to Nirmalie Wiratunga (nw@...).
