Call For Papers

A workshop of the 28th International Conference on Inductive Logic Programming (ILP 2018)
1st September 2018
Ferrara, Italy


Probabilistic logic programming (PLP) approaches have received much attention in this century. They address the need to reason about relational domains under uncertainty arising in a variety of application domains, such as bioinformatics, the semantic web, robotics, and many more. Developments in PLP include new languages that combine logic programming with probability theory as well as algorithms that operate over programs in these formalisms.

PLP is part of a wider current interest in probabilistic programming. By promoting probabilities as explicit programming constructs, inference, parameter estimation and learning algorithms can be run over programs which represent highly structured probability spaces. Due to logic programming's strong theoretical underpinnings, PLP is one of the more disciplined areas of probabilistic programming. It builds upon and benefits from the large body of existing work in logic programming, both in semantics and implementation, but also presents new challenges to the field.
This workshop aims to bring together researchers in all aspects of probabilistic logic programming, including theoretical work, system implementations and applications. Interactions between theoretical and applied minded researchers are encouraged. The presence of this workshop at ILP is intended to encourage collaboration with researchers from the field of Inductive Logic Programming.

Instructions on paper submission, important dates and Program Committee TBA.
