 We are very pleased to invite you to participate in the eighteenth International  Conference on Case-Based Reasoning (ICCBR), the premier international  meeting on research and applications in Case-Based Reasoning (CBR). ICCBR-10 will  be held in Alessandria, Italy from 19 July to 22 July 2010 and will be hosted by the University of Piemonte Orientale "A. Avogadro".

 Through 2009, ICCBR has been a biennial conference, held in alternation  with its sister conference, the European Conference on Case-Based  Reasoning (ECCBR), which was located in Europe. At the 2009 ICCBR, the ICCBR Program Committee  elected to extend an offer of consolidation with ECCBR. The offer was accepted by the ECCBR 2010 organizers and they have considered it approved by the ECCBR community,  as the two conferences share a majority of Program Committee members. From 2010, ICCBR and ECCBR will be merged in a single conference series, called ICCBR.  As there have been 8 previous ICCBR events and 9 previous ECCBR events, the combined series will be considered the 18th ICCBR.

Previous ICCBR conferences have been held in Sesimbra, Portugal (1995),  Providence, Rhode Island, USA (1997), Seeon Monastery, Germany (1999), Vancouver,  BC, Canada (2001), Trondheim, Norway (2003), Chicago, Illinois, USA (2005) and  Belfast, Northern Ireland (2007). and Seattle, USA (2009). ICCBR and ECCBR have been the leading conferences on Case-Based Reasoning.

 In order to expand the frontiers of CBR as a scientific field,  we would like to (1) emphasize the connections between CBR and related areas, and  (2) explore new problems and industrial solutions. Another main objective of  ICCBR-10 is to encourage new members to join the CBR community and regularly  attend / participate in ICCBR. Thus, the ICCBR-10 program will include several  new ideas along with the regular keynote addresses, technical program,  applications track, and workshop sessions.

 Please come and join us in Alessandria !

Additional details will be provided through this web site until the conference.
