Fourth Workshop on Learning with Logics and Logics for Learning 
                    (LLLL, L4)

Scope of the workshop : 
Logic is  a fundamental and useful representation method in 
Artificial Intelligence. In the area of Machine Learning, various types 
of computational logic, such as logic programs, first-order logic, 
description logic, higher-order logic, have been used for representing 
knowledge obtained with various types of learning mechanisms including 
identification in the limit, PAC learning, on-line learning, EXACT 
learning, machine discovery, and learning based on Bayesian networks. On 
the other hand, machine learning procedures are used in giving semantics 
to logic and foundations of some procedures in mathematics. 

This workshop is proposed to bring together researchers who are 
interested in both of the areas of machine learning and computational 
logic, and to have intensive discussions on various relations between 
the two with making their interchange more active.

Potential (but not exclusive) topics include :
  Learning and knowledge discovery using logics
  Algorithmic aspects of learning based on logics
  Logics for machine learning and knowledge discovery
  Logics using machine learning
  Machine learning as a foundation of mathematics/mathematical 
  Amalgamation of logic-based learning and statistical/information 
  theoretical learning
  Learning and knowledge discovery from relational data
  Learning and knowledge discovery from structured/semi-structured data
  Learning and knowledge discovery from real-valued data

Deadline of (first) paper submission: March 22, 2006
Notification of Acceptance: April 10, 2006
Deadline of camera ready submission: April 21, 2006

Workshop date: June 5 (Monday) or 6 (Tuesday), 2006  
Workshop site: Tower Hall Funabori, Edogawa, Tokyo JAPAN

The working note (proceedings) will be published by JSAI for 
the workshop, and some outstanding papers will be published in a post 
proceedings book as a volume in Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence 
from Springer, with such papers from other collocated workshops.
