Eighth UK Workshop
on Case Based Reasoning

Cambridge 15th December 2003

Call for Papers

Submissions are invited for the 8th UK Workshop on Case-Based Reasoning. This will be a relatively informal occasion where you can meet CBR colleagues and exchange news, views and opinions as well as presenting and/or learning about the work of other researchers and practitioners. As in the last few years, the workshop will again be held at Peterhouse, Cambridge, jointly with the British Computer Society SGAI AI-2003 conference on artificial intelligence and its applications. The workshop will run in parallel with the AI-2003 tutorials on the first day of the conference. A warm invitation is extended also to researchers from outside the UK to submit a paper, or otherwise attend. Special rates are available for students.

Scope of the Workshop

Paper submissions are invited on any aspect of the theory or practical application of CBR.

Journal Publication

The papers presented at each of the last three UK CBR Workshops have been published as special editions of the BCS SGAI journal Expert Update and it is expected that this will also be the case this year..
