1st Workshop on Beyond Attribute-Value Case Representation (BEAR)

on July 17th, 2023

at ICCBR 2023, Aberdeen, Scotland

Workshop Overview

Related to this year's conference theme, “CBR in a Data-Driven World”, this workshop addresses the challenges of coping with complex data in CBR. The BEAR workshop discusses research work, CBR applications, and systems where typical attribute-value case representations reach their limits and complex case representations such as object-oriented, textual, graph-structured, time-oriented (time series), hierarchical or hybrid representations need to be used. The application of such complex representations implies necessary (research) challenges. In general, these challenges affect all phases of the CBR cycle. For example, the complex case representation impacts the performance of similarity-based retrieval and adaptation. In addition, it affects the use of other AI methods integrated with CBR. In this workshop, participants shall present their research with complex case representations focusing on the general challenges and the impact on the CBR phases. The workshop aims to foster collaboration and exchange of ideas among researchers, developers, and others who use complex case representations that go beyond attribute-value case representations. 

Contributions should be in areas that include, but are not limited to, the following topics: 

The BEAR workshop will be held in conjunction with the 31th International Conference on Case-Based Reasoning in Aberdeen, Scotland, 17th - 20th July 2023.
