3rd International Joint Conference on Learning and Reasoning (IJCLR 2023) 13-15 November 2023, Bari, Italy

3rd International Joint Conference on Learning and Reasoning (IJCLR 2023)
13-15 November 2023, Bari, Italy

The rapid progress in machine learning has been the primary reason for a fresh look
in the transformative potential of AI as a whole during the past decade.
A crucial milestone for taking full advantage of this potential is the endowment of
algorithms that learn from experience with the ability to consult existing
knowledge and reason with what has already been learned.
Integrating learning and reasoning constitutes one of the key open questions in AI,
and holds the potential of addressing many of the shortcomings of contemporary AI
approaches, including the black-box nature and the brittleness of deep learning,
and the difficulty to adapt knowledge representation models in the light of new
Integrating learning and reasoning calls for approaches that combine knowledge
representation and machine reasoning techniques with learning algorithms from the
fields of neural, statistical and relational learning.

Three international conferences and workshops addressing such research topics join
forces in the 3rd International Conference on Learning & Reasoning (IJCLR 2023):

  • The 32nd International Conference on Inductive Logic Programming (ILP)
  • The 13th International Workshop on Approaches and Applications of Inductive
    Programming (AAIP)
  • The 1st International Workshop on Cognitive AI (CogAI)

IJCLR aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners working on various
aspects of learning & reasoning, via presentation of cutting-edge research on
topics of special interest to the participating conferences/workshops. In addition
to each of the three events’ individual programs, which will be held in parallel,
IJCLR aims to promote collaboration and cross-fertilization between different
approaches and methodologies to integrating learning & reasoning, via joint plenary
keynotes/invited talks, panel discussions and poster sessions.

IJCLR 2023 sincerely invite your paper submissions to one of the following tracks:

Journal Track

IJCLR’s journal track, the special issue on Learning and Reasoning supported by the
Machine Learning Journal (MLJ), is accepting paper submissions on regular cut-off
dates since February 2020. Submissions are solicited on all aspects of Learning and
Reasoning and topics where machine learning is combined with machine reasoning or
knowledge representation.
Papers are published online by MLJ upon acceptance and authors of accepted papers
are invited to present their work at the conference.

For cut-off dates, starting from June 15th, 2023 please refer to:

Conference Track

Each conference/workshop participating in IJCLR will be soliciting paper
submissions on the topics of its interest.
Accepted papers will be presented at IJCLR.
Additionally, IJCLR features a general “Conference Track” where authors are invited
to submit work that is relevant to the conference but does not necessarily fall
within the purview of a particular workshop (ILP, AAIP, CogAI).

Abstract submission: 26th June 2023
Paper submission: 3rd July 2023
Author notification: 25th August 2023
Camera-ready due: 8th September 2023

Recently Published Papers Track

IJCLR solicits submissions of high-quality papers on combining learning and
reasoning that have been recently published, or accepted for publication, by a
first-class conference such as ECML/PKDD, ICML, KDD, ICDM, AAAI, IJCAI, etc., or
journal such as MLJ, DMKD, JMLR etc.
Papers will be accepted on the grounds of relevance and quality of the original
publication venue. Accepted papers will be presented at IJCLR.
