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 2012 is the twentysecond 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 Dubrovnik. 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.
