Call For Papers

The International Conference on Case-Based Reasoning (ICCBR) is the premier, annual meeting of the case-based reasoning (CBR) community and the leading international conference on this topic. The CBR community welcomes contributions from participants representing all types of affiliations (e.g., academic, industry, government) and from all communities applying CBR or conducting relevant research.  Conference submissions are not limited to papers on the conference theme, though the organisers are especially interested in papers that do address the theme.


GLOBAL CHALLENGES FOR CBR is this year’s conference theme, to direct the community’s attention to the pressing issues that impact us all, such as sustainability, climate change and global health crises.    This year we pose the question: “What can CBR do to meet these challenges?”

Accordingly, this year’s conference welcomes and encourages submissions and participation from members of the AI and CBR communities – whether they be researchers, policy makers or practitioners — on these global challenges.  In this respect, we look forward to  a variety of submissions; they could be position papers or roadmapping proposals, as well as traditional basic or applied research papers.

In addition to the emphasized areas above, we welcome submissions relevant to all areas of CBR, including (but not limited to):

  • Case authoring, elicitation, and visualization
  • Case representation
  • Case retrieval, indexing, and similarity measures
  • Case reuse, adaptation, revision, and combination
  • Case-base maintenance
  • Confidence and uncertainty
  • Evaluation, simulation, and prediction
  • Explanations
  • Similarity metric and adaptation knowledge learning
  • ‘Modern’ CBR
  • Analogical reasoning, cognitive models, and creative reasoning
  • Cloud CBR
  • Explainable AI (XAI)
  • Intelligent agents, perception, and action
  • Internet of things
  • Data mining and big data
  • Machine learning (e.g., deep, instance-based/lazy, relational)
  • Natural language processing and information retrieval
  • Robotics and human-robot interaction
  • Web CBR
  • CBR planning
  • Conversational CBR
  • Design
  • Distributed CBR
  • Recommender systems
  • Social CBR
  • Temporal reasoning (e.g., reasoning with traces, time series)
  • Textual CBR
  • User modeling and personalization
  • Workflow management and process-oriented CBR
  • AI for the Social Good

  • Extended Submission Deadline:      April 22, 2022       May 1, 2022
  • Extended Proposal Notification:      March 20, 2022    May 30, 2022

  • Conference starts:                             September 12, 2022


Each submission must be identified as presenting (1) theoretical/methodological research, (2) applied research/emerging applications, (3) a deployed application, and will be reviewed using criteria appropriate to its category, (4) Literature surveys, or (5) Challenge papers. These criteria are as follows:

  1. Theoretical/methodological research: Scientific significance, originality, technical quality, and clarity;
  2. Applied research/emerging applications: Significance for theoretical research or promise for application deployment;
  3. Deployed application: Demonstrated practical significance; originality; treatment of issues of engineering, management, and user acceptance; and clarity;
  4. Literature survey: Well-developed body of research, inclusion of works from several authors, significance, clarity, open research questions.

Papers will be considered for poster or oral presentation based on the reviews and the most effective mode of presenting it to the ICCBR audience.


Authors must submit a full paper by the conference paper submission deadline, formatted according to the Springer LNCS formatting guidelines ( Papers (submitted and final) should be no longer than 15 pages including references. Please submit papers using the EasyChair conference management system here:

Multiple Submission Policy

Papers submitted to other conferences must state this fact as a footnote on page 1, and please also notify the program co-chairs by email. If a paper will appear in another conference or journal, it must be withdrawn from ICCBR 2022.

Author Registration Policy

For a paper to appear in the proceedings, at least one of the authors must register for the conference by the camera-ready copy deadline. Papers must be presented by one of the authors at the conference live. There will be no video presentations.
