We thank all ILP 2008 participants for having made the conference a great success! The main track proceedings book is available from Springer. The late breaking papers proceedings book is available here (zipped here). Some ILP 2008 photos can be found here. ILP 2009 will take place in Leuven, Belgium (July 09) in collocation with MLG and SRL. Good luck!
Inductive Logic Programming (ILP) is a subfield of machine learning which uses logic programming as a uniform representation technique for examples, background knowledge and hypotheses. Due to its strong representation formalism based on first-order Horn Clause logic, ILP provides excellent means for multi-relational learning and data mining. ILP 2008 is the eighteenth in the series of the international conference on ILP. We are pleased to announce that this year the International Conference on Inductive Logic Programming will take place in Prague. The ILP conference has broadened its scope and welcomes contributions to learning from multi-relational databases and otherwise non-trivially structured data, ranging from purely logic-based to alternative approaches, such as probabilistic or connectionist, including their viable combinations.
