== COMPUTATIONAL ANALOGY 2017:  Workshop at the International Conference on
Case-Based Reasoning (ICCBR 2017) ==

Where & when: Trondheim, Norway, June 26-28, 2017
Website: https://iccbr-ca2017.limsi.fr 

== Workshop Description ==

Computational Analogy and Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) are closely related
research areas. Both employ prior cases to reason in complex situations with
incomplete information. Analogy research often focuses on modeling human
cognitive processes, the structural alignment between a case/source and
target, and adaptation/abstraction of the analogical source content. While
CBR research also deals with alignment and adaptation, the field tends to
focus more on retrieval, case-base maintenance, and pragmatic solutions to
real-world problems. However, despite their obvious overlap in research
goals and approaches, cross communication and collaboration between these
areas has been progressively diminishing. CBR and Analogy researchers stand
to benefit greatly from increased exposure to each other’s work and greater
cross-pollination of ideas. The objective of this workshop is to promote
such communication by bringing together researchers from the two areas, to
foster new collaborative endeavors, to stimulate new ideas and avoid
reinventing old ones.

== Organizing Committee ==

- Fadi Badra (badra at univ-paris13.fr), Université Paris 13, Paris (France)
- Tarek Besold (Tarek.Besold at uni-bremen.de), University of Bremen (Germany)
- Joseph Blass (joeblass at u.northwestern.edu), Northwestern University (USA)
- Tesca Fitzgerald (tesca.fitzgerald at cc.gatech.edu), Georgia Institute of

== Participation ==

The workshop will be held as part of the ICCBR 2017 conference in Trondheim,
Norway (June 26-28th, 2017). The workshop is open to all interested
conference participants. We welcome longer submissions (up to 10 pages), as
well as shorter submissions for work in progress or position papers. Papers
will be reviewed by qualified reviewers drawn from the workshop’s Program
Committee, and the Program Committee will select amongst the submitted
papers for oral presentation. We also encourage those who do not want to
submit a paper to attend, as one of the primary goals of the workshop is to
foster greater communication and cross-pollination of ideas amongst
Computational Analogy and CBR researchers.

== Submissions ==

Paper submissions should be formatted using the ICCBR Conference format, but
with a maximum of 10 pages in length (including references). Shorter
submissions (max 5 pages), such as work in progress or position papers, are
also welcome. Authors will be required to submit their papers through the
workshop submission website.
