Knowledge-Based Systems in Computational Design and Media

ICCBR 2018 Workshop -- Program updated (07.07.2018)

Call for Papers

Case-based reasoning as well as other knowledge-based methods and approaches have a rich tradition in design and related creative domains. Systems developed for such domains usually deal with knowledge-intensive design and media data and complex algorithms of different types for reasoning during configuration and decision support tasks. Retrieval and retention of design solutions are among the core functionalities of such approaches and have a long history in a multitude of research projects as well.

The ICCBR 2018 workshop Knowledge-Based Systems in Computational Design and Media is intended to continue this tradition of CBR in creative and interaction-based domains in order to explore the newest directions and trends of this research field. Therefore, the main aim of the workshop is to track and examine the current trends in CBR as well as other knowledge-based methods and approaches in research and development areas of design, media, and creativity.

We welcome contributions from researchers of all directions of research on knowledge-based approaches in design, media, and creativity. The submissions may include, but are not limited to, new algorithms for case-based design and media retrieval, knowledge-based methods for decision support during different design phases, data structures for computationally modeled dialogues with the users from the target group, design generation, configuration, and interpretation with AI techniques, instance-based or sequence-based learning of the design process and adaptation to the user behavior, cognitive architectures for design tasks, and similar research disciplines. We particularly invite submissions of surveys and overviews of the existing approaches to get a comprehensive overview of the current status of the workshop topic.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

The workshop will take place on July 10th, 2018, as part of the ICCBR 2018 workshops in Stockholm, Sweden. The workshop is open to all interested conference participants.


Paper submissions should be formatted using the ICCBR Conference format (LNCS) and should be maximum 10 pages in length. Please submit your work via the EasyChair system, which is also used by the main conference. The workshop proceedings will be published online via the CEUR-WS service.
