The 2nd International Joint Conference on Learning & Reasoning (IJCLR) will be held in Cumberland Lodge, Windsor Great Park, United Kingdom, 28-30 September 2022.

The rapid progress in machine learning has been the primary reason for a fresh look in the transormative potential of AI as a whole during the past decade. A crucial milestone for taking full advantage of this potential is the endowment of algorithms that learn from experience with the ability to consult existing knowledge and reason with what has already been learned. Integrating learning and reasoning constitutes one of the key open questions in AI, and holds the potential of addressing many of the shortcomings of contemporary AI approaches, including the black-box nature and the brittleness of deep learning, and the difficulty to adapt knowledge representation models in the light of new data. Integrating learning and reasoning calls for approaches that combine knowledge representation and machine reasoning techniques with learning algorithms from the fields of neural, statistical and relational learning.

Four international conferences and workshops addressing such research topics join forces in the 2nd International Conference on Learning & Reasoning (IJCLR 2022):

IJCLR aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners working on various aspects of learning & reasoning, via presentation of cutting-edge research on topics of special interest to the participating conferences/workshops. In addition to each of the four events' individual programs, which will be held in parallel, IJCLR aims to promote collaboration and cross-fertilization between different approaches and methodologies to integrating learning & reasoning, via joint keynotes, panel discussions and poster sessions.

Call for Papers

Journal Track: IJCLR’s journal track, the special issue on Learning and Reasoning supported by the Machine Learning Journal (MLJ), is accepting paper submissions on regular cut-off dates since February 2020. Submissions are solicited on all aspects of Learning and Reasoning and topics where machine learning is combined with machine reasoning or knowledge representation. Papers are published online by MLJ upon acceptance and authors of accepted papers are invited to present their work at the conference. Upcoming cut-off date: 1st Dec 2021 1st Feb 2021.

Conference Track: Each conference/workshop participating in IJCLR will be soliciting paper submissions on the topics of its interest. Accepted papers will be presented at IJCLR. Additionally, IJCLR features a “General Track” where authors are invited to submit work that is relevant to the conference but it does not necessarily fall within the scope of a particular workshop (ILP, NeSy, AAIP, HLC). Submission deadline: TBA

Recently published papers Track: IJCLR solicits submissions of high-quality papers on combining learning and reasoning that have been recently published, or accepted for publication, by a first-class conference such as ECML/PKDD, ICML, KDD, ICDM, AAAI, IJCAI, etc., or journal such as MLJ, DMKD, JMLR etc. Papers will be accepted on the grounds of relevance and quality of the original publication venue. Accepted papers will be presented at IJCLR. Submission deadline: TBA

Please follow the Call for Papers link for more information and guidelines on paper submissions to the IJCLR tracks.
