Call for Papers

The ICCBR 2019 Deep Learning workshop would like to invite submissions of original, theoretical and applied research which explore the links between Deep Learning (DL) and Case-Based Reasoning (CBR).

Example submission areas may target, but are not limited to, the following:

  • How DL can be used to improve knowledge aggregation strategies for case representation.
  • The role of DL in making similarity computations easier and more efficient.
  • Application of DL to help with solution adaptation.
  • How DL architectures can be used to inspire more efficient indexing and retrieval architectures.

Research papers should present relatively novel work in these (or related) areas. We also welcome application and development papers which demonstrate the industrial relevance or use cases.

Topics of Interest

  • All Deep Learning approaches applied to CBR, including but not limited to:
      • Knowledge representation
      • Similarity and retrieval
      • Adaptation
      • case-base maintenance
      • Dynamic systems
      • Cognitive modelling
      • Conversational CBR
      • Textual CBR
      • Temporal reasoning
      • Mixed initiative CBR
      • Systems and application
  • CBR approaches applied to Deep Learning
  • Novel interdisciplinary ideas


Paper Formats

The following paper types will be considered for publication at ICCBR DL 2019:

  • Long paper: Maximum of 10 pages to present novel and original work. This work should not be published elsewhere, but extensions of previous work which offer new insight or that support a new theme are also encouraged provided that all previous work is referenced accordingly.
  • Short paper: Maximum of 5 pages to describe preliminary work, present an overview of existing work or to be accompanied by a demonstration.

All submissions must be made in Springer LNCS format, Authors’ instructions along with LaTeX and Word macro files are available at Springer’s Information for LNCS Authors page,

Submission Process

All papers are to be submitted via the ICCBR-19 EasyChair system (details will be updated in the near future).

Workshop submissions will be subject to review by at least two reviewers who will be members of the Programme Committee. Researchers who submit demo systems will be required to provide access to the software (or a video of its functionality) in advance to facilitate evaluation.

Paper acceptance (and the option for subsequent publication) is dependent on at least one author attending the workshop to present the relevant research.
