The 2014 edition of the annual International Conference on Inductive Logic Programming (ILP 2014) will be held in Nancy, France, on September 14-16th, 2014. Additionally, ILP 2014 will be co-located with ECML/PKDD.
Inductive Logic Programming is a subfield of machine learning that uses logic programming as a uniform representation language for examples, background knowledge and hypotheses. Due to its expressive representation formalism based on first-order logic, ILP provides suitable means for multi-relational learning and data mining.
The ILP conference is the premier international forum on logic-based and relational learning. The conference has broadened its scope and welcomes contributions to learning from multi-relational databases and non-trivially structured data, ranging from purely logic-based to alternative approaches, such as probabilistic or connectionist. Work on ILP has explored several intersections to statistical learning and other probabilistic approaches, expanding research horizons significantly.
