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.

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.
