Call for Workshop Proposals

26th International Conference on Case-Based Reasoning (ICCBR 2018)

Stockholm, Sweden July 10th – 12th, 2018

The organizing committee of the 26th International Conference on Case-Based Reasoning (ICCBR 2018) invites proposals for the Workshop Program. Workshops will be held, at least, on one day during the conference from July 10th to 12th, 2018.

General Information:

ICCBR 2018 workshops will provide an informal setting in which participants will have the opportunity to discuss specific technical topics in an atmosphere that fosters the active cross-fertilization of ideas. Workshops that explore interactions between sub-areas of CBR, focus on unique or interdisciplinary applications of CBR, and investigate newly evolving areas of CBR are particularly encouraged. Workshops will last about 4 hours. The format and content of each workshop will largely be determined by each workshop organizing committee although “mini-conference” proposals are discouraged. To stimulate interaction and a broad exchange of ideas, ample time should be allocated in each workshop for general discussions.

The workshop organizing committee will be responsible for:

  1. Producing a Call for Papers/Participation for their workshop. It should clarify how paper submission, selection and presentation will be conducted by the organizing committee. Furthermore, the submission procedure, format, and dates should be included, and be in accordance with the dates listed below;
  2. Review and select presentations and papers;
  3. Edit their workshop’s notes and send them to the workshop coordinator (contact details below) in accordance with the dates listed.

ICCBR 2018 will provide:

  • A meeting place for the workshop.
  • An electronic version of the workshop notes, such as CEUR.

Submission of Workshop Proposals

Members from all areas of the CBR and related communities are invited to submit workshop proposals for review. Workshop proposals should provide sufficient information to evaluate the quality and importance of the topic, the goals of the workshop, and the size of the interested community.

Proposals should identify one or more chairs and a program committee. Proposals should be 2-4 pages and contain the following information:

  • Proposed title of the workshop.
  • Contact information for the proposer, including the names, postal addresses, phone numbers, and email address.
  • A brief technical description of the workshop, specifying the workshop goals and the technical issues that will be its focus.
  • A brief discussion of why and to whom the workshop is of interest.
  • A draft call for papers.
  • A preliminary workshop agenda and schedule for the workshop. This should include a brief description of how the organizers intend to conduct the workshop (e.g., discussions, panel discussions, paper presentations, invited talks or other types of communication).
  • If available, a list of interested participants or groups. If a similar workshop was held in the past, include information about received submissions and attendance.
  • Intended means of advertising the workshop.
  • Contact information, including the names, postal addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses (if available) of the proposed workshop organizing committee. This committee should consist of at least two people with experiences in the issues to be addressed. Ideally, these people should not be from the same institution.

Workshop proposals should be submitted via e-mail. Please forward an electronic copy in PDF format as soon as possible but no later than January 31, 2018 to the workshop coordinator: .

Proposals will be reviewed by the organizing committee and prospective organizers will be notified of their decision no later than February 7, 2018. Other 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.com. Any special audio-visual requirements and special room requirements must be arranged with the workshop coordinator (Mirjam Minor). ICCBR reserves the right to cancel any workshop if deadlines are missed, if too few submissions are received, or if too few attendees register for the workshop to support the costs of holding it. In special cases, the ICCBR organizing committee may suggest the consolidation of workshops, to prevent the need for cancellation. To cover costs, it may be necessary to charge workshop participants a workshop fee in addition to the normal ICCBR 2018 conference registration fee. Please note that all workshop participants must register for the conference while workshops must be open to all registered participants of ICCBR 2018.
