Call for Papers

Computational Analogy 2017
Workshop at the International Conference on Case-Based Reasoning
(ICCBR 2017)
Trondheim, Norway, June 26, 2017

Workshop Website : https://iccbr-ca2017.limsi.fr


Computational Analogy and Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) are closely
related research areas. Both employ prior cases to reason in
complex situations with incomplete information. Analogy research
often focuses on modeling human cognitive processes, the
structural alignment between a case/source and target, and
adaptation/abstraction of the analogical source content. While CBR
research also deals with alignment and adaptation, the field tends
to focus more on retrieval, case-base maintenance, and pragmatic
solutions to real-world problems. However, despite their obvious
overlap in research goals and approaches, cross communication and
collaboration between these areas has been progressively
diminishing. CBR and Analogy researchers stand to benefit greatly
from increased exposure to each other’s work and greater
cross-pollination of ideas.

Following the successful Analogy workshop at ICCBR-16, the
workshop will be held for its second edition on June 26, 2017, as
part of the ICCBR 2017 workshop series in Trondheim, Norway. The
workshop is open to all interested conference participants. The
objective of this workshop is to promote such communication by
bringing together researchers from the two areas, to foster new
collaborative endeavors, to stimulate new ideas and avoid
reinventing old ones.

Submission deadline : April 24th, 2017
Notification of acceptance : May 8th, 2017
Camera-ready paper : May 29th, 2017


Paper submissions should be formatted using the ICCBR Conference
format, but with a maximum of 10 pages in length (including
references). Shorter submissions (max 5 pages), such as work in
progress or position papers, are also welcome. Authors will be
required to submit their papers through the workshop submission
website. Papers will be reviewed by qualified reviewers drawn from
the workshop’s Program Committee. We also encourage those who do
not want to submit a paper to attend, as one of the primary goals
of the workshop is to foster greater communication and
cross-pollination of ideas amongst Computational Analogy and CBR
