Call for Papers

What is the Special Track on Case-Based Reasoning?

Over the past 18 years, the FLAIRS special track program has provided a focus point for the North American Case-Based Reasoning community, though it has drawn excellent international participation as well. The CBR special track at FLAIRS has come to fill the important role of a North American Symposium on CBR, and it is well regarded in the community. The main International Conference on Case-Based Reasoning (ICCBR) often may not have a North American venue for several years, so the special track ensures a targeted CBR meeting in North America.

What is the GOAL of the track?

This track is intended to gather AI researchers and practitioners with an interest in CBR and related fields to present and discuss developments in CBR theory and application as well as possibilities for collaboration, integration, and sharing of ideas, experience, and best practices between the CBR community and other AI research communities.

Similar to the ICCBR conference, we will actively seek submissions that create connections to other research communities whose interests overlap with those of the CBR community, such as the Computational Creativity, Goal Reasoning, Cognitive Systems, and Game AI communities.

What kind of studies will be of interest?

Papers and contributions are encouraged for any work relating to Case-Based Reasoning. Topics of interest may include (but are in no way limited to):

  1. Foundations of CBR
  2. Methods for CBR (e.g., representation, indexing, retrieval, adaptation)
  3. Evaluation Methods for CBR Systems and Integrations
  4. Practical Applications of CBR
  5. Textual CBR
  6. CBR and Creativity
  7. CBR and Design
  8. Distributed CBR
  9. Case Base Maintenance
  10. CBR in the Health Sciences
  11. CBR Integrations
  12. Case-Based Planning
  13. CBR & Games
  14. CBR and Recommender Systems
  15. CBR Tools and Methodologies
  16. Case-based Agents
  17. Reasoning about Time in CBR
  18. Process-Oriented CBR
  19. CBR and Knowledge Discovery
  20. Computational Analogy

Note: We invite original papers (i.e. work not previously submitted, in submission, or to be submitted to another conference during the reviewing process).

Submission Guidelines

Interested authors should format their papers according to AAAI formatting guidelines. The papers should be original work (i.e., not submitted, in submission, or submitted to another conference while in review). Papers should not exceed 6 pages (4 pages for a poster) and are due by November 19, 2018. For FLAIRS-32, the 2019 conference, the reviewing is a double blind process. Fake author names and affiliations must be used on submitted papers to provide double blind reviewing. Papers must be submitted as PDF through the EasyChair conference system, which can be accessed through the main conference web site (http://www.flairs-32.info/). Note: do not use a fake name for your EasyChair login - your EasyChair account information is hidden from reviewers. Authors should indicate the Case-Based Reasoning special track for submissions. The proceedings of FLAIRS will be published by the AAAI. Authors of accepted papers will be required to sign a form transferring copyright of their contribution to AAAI. FLAIRS requires that there be at least one full author registration per paper.

Please, check the website http://www.flairs-32.info/ for further information.

Conference Proceedings

Papers will be refereed and all accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings, which will be published by AAAI Press.
