About this workshop

This workshop is dedicated to time in case-based reasoning and how time is dealt with in all aspects of it. The literature on case-based reasoning that takes time into account is broad. Still, there are aspects that have not been given much consideration. Reasoning about time drives the complexity of AI systems, but with the increasing amount of streaming and event-based data, this complexity has to be dealt with, also in CBR. The aim is to refocus the CBR community's attention to temporal reasoning, as the focus has moved away lately even though the number of temporal CBR applications is increasing. Several open problems exist in temporal CBR, and these contain among others temporal revise and CBR on data streams. Two workshops were organized in early 2000 on Applying case-based reasoning to time series prediction. The goal for the RATIC series of workshops is to broaden the focus from time-series prediction only to other aspects of temporal reasoning. This workshop is a continuation to the RATIC 2014 and RATIC 2016 workshops.

We particularly welcome contributions in areas that include, but are not limited to, the following:

We encourage everyone to make the research presented at this workshop reproducible. This means making the source code, the data and the experiments available to the workshop participants specifically and research community in general if possible. This is not required, only encouraged.

Two types of papers will be accepted:


All papers are to be submitted via the ICCBR-18 EasyChair system and can be submitted here. Papers should be in Springer LNCS format. Author's instructions, along with LaTeX and Word macro files, are available at Springer's website.

Submissions should be original papers that have not already been published elsewhere. However, papers may include previously published results that support a new theme, as long as all past publications are fully referenced.

We would like the title of the paper and some keywords to be submitted about a week before the deadline so that we can start the reviewer bidding process.
