The Eighth International Conference on Inductive Logic Programming (ILP'98)
The Eighth International Conference on Inductive Logic Programming
(ILP'98) was held July 22-24, 1998, on the
campus of the University of Wisconsin, in
Madison, Wisconsin, U.S.A. ILP'98 was co-located with
the Fifteenth International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML'98),
the Fifteenth National
Conference on Artificial Intelligence,
the Tenth Annual Innovative Applications of Artificial Intelligence (IAAI'98),
the Eleventh Annual Conference on Computational Learning Theory (COLT'98),
the Third Annual Genetic Programming Conference (GP'98),
the Fourteenth Annual Conference on Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence Conference (UAI'98),
the Twentieth Annual Meeting of the Cognitive Science Society (CogSci'98), and the Eighth Annual Meeting of the Society for Text and Discourse.
An ILP Tutorial Day,
was held the day before ILP'98.
You can purchase a copy of the ILP'98 proceedings directly from the

The ILP Workshop/Conference Series
ILP'98 is part of a successful series of ILP events begun in 1991.
Inductive Logic Programming (ILP) is the study of
automated inductive learning where the knowledge representation
used is first-order definite clause logic. The richness of the
representation makes ILP particularly well-suited to domains
such as organic chemistry and molecular biology, natural language
processing, and telecommunications, where examples are easily described
as sets of objects (e.g., atoms in a molecule) together with relations
that hold among those objects (e.g., bonds or distance relations).
Traditionally ILP researchers have shown equally great interest in papers
describing (1) theoretical advances, (2) implementations of new or
improved systems, and (3) novel applications.
