22nd UKCBR for 2017 announced

Posted on

The 22nd UKCBR event will be held on December 12th 1017.

The CFP will be published soon.

For this year, the UKCBR series of workshops has been renamed to the UKCBR Symposium. This reflects best the nature of the event, that presents an annual opportunity for Case Based Reasoning (CBR) researchers and people interested in CBR to get together and discuss various theoretical and application issues and trends in CBR. The event has always attracted an international audience, and contains peer-reviewed submitted research publications, invited talks and tutorials/workshops, as well as other opportunities for discussion, dissemination, learning and networking in the area of CBR.

New Deadline: October 30th

Following many requests, the deadline for paper submissions has been extended to October 30th.
