This is the tenth conference in the highly succesful series of International Workshops/Conferences on Inductive Logic Programming, which has run anually since 1991. ILP-2000 will be co-located with CL2000, the First International Conference on Computational Logic, a major new annual conference series bringing together the various communities of researchers who have a common interest in Computational Logic. ILP2000 and CL2000 will include an extensive joint series of invited speakers and tutorials. Inquiries and suggestions about ILP-2000 should be sent by email to email@example.com.
The proceedings of this conference are published by Springer as Number 1866 in the series Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence. The title of the volume is Inductive Logic Programming: Proceedings of the 10th International Conference and it is edited by James Cussens and Alan M. Frisch.
There is also a proceedings containing the papers from the conference's work-in-progress track. The title of the volume is Inductive Logic Programming: Work-in-Progress Reports of the 10th International Conference and it is edited by James Cussens and Alan M. Frisch. It appears as Volume 35 in the collection of CEUR Workshop Proceedings.
ILP: Just Do It
Inductive logic programming (ILP) is built on foundations laid by research in other areas of computational logic. These foundations include
In spite of these foundations, at 10 years of age ILP now faces a number of new challenges brought on by exciting application opportunities. The purpose of this talk is to interest researchers from other areas of computational logic in contributing their special skill sets to help ILP meet these challenges. For example, within many bioinformatics applications, ILP needs a synthesis with probabilistic techniques to capture relationships that hold probabilistically rather than deterministically. For applications from information extraction to physical modeling, it has been demonstrated that ILP can benefit from incorporating multiple types of reasoners, in an analogous manner to constraint logic programming. For problems as diverse as natural language processing and drug design that have massive search spaces, ILP potentially can benefit from stochastic search as in many of the leading planning and propositional reasoning systems. The talk will address these and other recently-identified directions for ILP, discussing recent work, drawing links to other areas of computational logic, and seeking to attract new researchers at each step.
ILP2000 invited talks and tutorials are fully integrated with CL2000. See the CL2000 home page for the full programme.
