The Seventh International Workshop on

Inductive Logic Programming

17-20 September 1997, Prague, Czech Republic

General Information:

ILP-97 is the seventh in a series of international workshops on Inductive Logic Programing. ILP-97 will be preceeded by a summer school on ILP and KDD (15-17 September). The last day of ILP-97 will be joined with a meeting of the area ``Computational Logic and Machine Learning'' of the European Network of Excellence on Computational Logic (COMPULOG). The Proceedings of ILP-97 will be published by Springer.


The scientific program will include invited talks by Usama Fayyad, Georg Gottlob, and Jean-Francois Puget, as well as presentations of accepted papers. Submissions are invited that describe theoretical, empirical and applied research in all areas of ILP. This includes, for example, results concerning logical settings for ILP, learning in the context of higher-order logics and constraint logic programming, as well as ILP systems that use probabilistic techniques and heuristics. Contributions that describe the use of ILP approaches in areas such as natural language processing, knowledge discovery in databases, intelligent agents, information retrieval, etc. are encouraged. Submissions describing applications of ILP methods to real-world problems are especially welcome.
