***We apologize if you receive multiple copies of this call***

Dear colleagues,

We invite submissions to 24th International Conference on Inductive 
Logic Programming, which will be held in Nancy, France, on September 
14-16th, 2014. Additionally, ILP 2014 will be co-located with ECML/PKDD.

Scope <http://dtai.cs.kuleuven.be/events/ilp2014/cfp.php#>

Since its inception in 1991, the Internationl Conference on Inductive 
Logic Programming (ILP) conference series has been the premier forum for 
publishing original work on learning from structured relational data. 
Initially, its focus lay in the induction of logic programs. Over the 
years the scope of the program broadened and ILP has remained a vibrant 
area of research. Papers for this year's conference are solicited in all 
areas of learning in logic, relational learning, and relational data 
mining, statistical relational learning, multi-relational data mining, 
relational reinforcement learning, graph mining, among others. The 
papers can address topics including, but not limited to:

  * Algorithms: probabilistic and statistical approaches, distance and
    kernel-based methods, learning with (semi)structured data,
    supervised, unsupervised, and semi-supervised relational learning,
    relational reinforcement learning, inductive databases, link
    discovery, new propositionalization approaches, multi-instance
    learning, predicate invention, logical and probabilistic inference,
    uncertainty reasoning.
  * Applications: the arts, bioinformatics, chemoinformatics,
    engineering, games, graphs/networks, medical informatics, robotics,
    text/web mining, etc.
  * Representations and languages for logic-based learning: including
    datalog, first-order logic, description logics and ontologies,
    higher-order logic, probabilistic logical representations, mapping
    between alternative representations.
  * Systems: systems that implement inductive logic programming
    algorithms with special emphasis on issues like optimization,
    parallelism, efficiency and scalability.
  * Theory: learning scenarios, data/model representation frameworks,
    computational and/or statistical learning theory, etc.

Submission Types <http://dtai.cs.kuleuven.be/events/ilp2014/cfp.php#>

We solicit both long and short papers:

_Long papers: _These should describe original mature work and should be 
appropriately evaluated. The evaluation can consist of a rigorous 
theoretical analysis, an empirical evaluation, or both. Long papers will 
be reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. An 
acceptance notification will be sent prior to the conference and 
accepted papers will appear in the Springer LNAI post-conference 
proceedings. Authors of accepted papers will have a standard time slot 
to present their paper.

_Short papers:_ These can fall in one of two categories.

The first should describe work that is insufficiently mature to qualify 
as a long paper. Typically, these papers describe work in progress where 
the idea is insufficiently worked out or evaluated. The PC chairs will 
accept/reject short papers on the grounds of relevance to the 
conference. Authors of accepted short papers will be able to give a 
short presentation during the conference. After the conference, each 
short paper will be reviewed by at least three members of the program 
committee on the basis of both the manuscript and its presentation, and 
the authors of selected papers will be invited to submit a long version 
for the Springer LNAI post-conference proceedings. In this case, the 
long paper will be re-reviewed by the same PC members.

The second is a summary of recently published work accepted for 
publication in a first-class conference such as ICML, KDD, ICDM, AAAI, 
IJCAI, etc. or journal such as MLJ, DMKD, JMLR etc. The PC chairs will 
accept/reject such papers on the grounds of relevance and quality of the 
original publication venue. These papers will be presented during the 
conference but WILL NOT appear in the Springer LNAI post-conference 

Long paper submissions and the first category of short must not have 
been published in journal or for another conference with published 
proceedings. No submitted papers may be under review for a journal or 
for another conference with published proceedings.They should be 
submitted in the Springer LNCS format. Long papers must not exceed 12 
pages and short papers must not exceed six pages.

A special issue of the Machine Learning journal is planned following the 
conference, which welcomes conference submissions from all the 
categories above, significantly revised and extended to meet the MLJ 
criteria, as well as new, high-quality submissions. These will be 
(re-)reviewed by the (guest) editorial board for the issue.
