Special Session on
Case-Based Reasoning, Knowledge Representation and Ontologies
The 3rd Indian International Conference on Artificial Intelligence

December 17-19, 2007, Pune, India

A Special Session on Case-Based Reasoning, Knowledge Representation and Ontologies will be held during the 3rd Indian International Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IICAI-07). This session is intended to gather AI researchers and practitioners with an interest in Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) to present and discuss the developments in CBR theory and applications. Several issues in knowledge representation and ontologies are closely related to CBR due to the fact that CBR is richer not only in the complexity of case-base design but also in the background knowledge representation.

Submissions are solicited on CBR topics, Knowledge Representation and Ontologies including but not limited to:

CBR Foundations:

  • Indexing, retrieval, adaptation, explanations.
  • Case and knowledge representation, acquisition, modeling, visualization, maintenance and management for CBR.

CBR Architectures, Methodologies and Applications:

  • CBR in the semantic web, web services and grid computing.
  • CBR and education.
  • Textual CBR.
  • CBR and creativity.
  • CBR and design.
  • Case-based planning.
  • CBR and Human Computer Interaction: adaptive interfaces, user modeling, customization and personalization.

Ontology Methodologies and Applications:

  • Ontology-driven CBR and information systems design.
  • Semantic web, web services and grid computing.
  • Requirements engineering and knowledge engineering.
  • Role of reference ontologies; ontology integration and alignment.
  • Ontology foundational issues: top-level vs. application ontologies, cognition, epistemology and text.

Paper Submission and Publication:

Authors are encouraged to submit the papers for this session as an email attachment to the Session Chairs given below. The papers should be in MSWORD, PDF, or PS format and should be formatted according to the Springer Lecture Notes instructions. The length of a paper should not exceed 20 pages. Shorter papers or papers on the work currently in progress are also welcome. The first page of the paper should contain the title, name(s) of the authors, affiliations, the postal and email addresses, and at least 3 keywords appropriate to the content of the paper. Further information regarding the paper submission can be obtained from the conference website too.

Each paper will be peer reviewed by at least two experts in the topical area. All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, under the title of the session.

You may contact the General Chair of the conference for any additional information.
