  • Interaction of inductive and deductive techniques for AI solutions,

  • Integration of Answer Set Programming (ASP) in inductive scenarios,

  • Integration of Constraint Programming (CSP) in inductive scenarios,

  • Integration of other logic programming paradigms in inductive scenarios,

  • Integration of declarative solutions in inductive scenarios,

  • Logic programming language extensions for supporting inductive processes,

  • New methods for coupling peculiarities of deductive and inductive systems,

  • Inductive reasoning to enhance and improve deductive systems,

  • Deductive processes for intensive data flow management,

  • Deductive processes in strong inductive-tailored scenarios,

  • Knowledge representation and reasoning for improving and enhancing inductive processing,

  • Discussions and positions on novel hybrid methods of deductive and inductive reasoning,

  • Evaluation and comparison of existing deductive and inductive methods,

  • Hybridizing logic programming paradigms with procedural approaches,

  • Novel contexts of application for hybrid deductive and inductive systems.

Submissions and Review Process

Authors are invited to submit their manuscripts in PDF via the EasyChair system at the link:

The workshop welcomes both full papers, possibly already submitted to other conferences or journals, and short papers, which are suggested for presenting work in progress, extended abstracts, software prototypes, or general overviews of research projects. The workshop also welcomes position and discussion papers.

All submissions must be in PDF format, written in English, and formatted according to the CEUR official art style ( Full papers should not exceed 12 pages (including bibliography); short, position, and discussion papers should not exceed 8 pages (including bibliography). To ease the reviewing process, the authors of full papers may add an appendix (although reviewers are not required to consider it in their evaluation).

Proceedings and post-Proceedings

All accepted original contributions (both full and short) will be published on Non-original communications will be given visibility on the workshop web site including a link to the original publication, if already published.

The organizers are considering the possibility of having workshop post-proceedings appearing in a special issue of an international journal, provided that a sufficient amount of high-quality papers is collected. In such case, authors of accepted papers will be invited to submit extended and revised versions of their papers. Extensions of accepted non-original contributions, if not published in a journal yet, might be included in the issue. A second review formal process will be run in order to meet the expected quality of a journal.
