* The Twenty-Second International Conference on Case-Based Reasoning was held from September 29 to October 1, 2014. This report summarizes the conference highlights.


The Twenty-Second International Conference on Case-Based Reasoning (ICCBR), the premier international meeting on research and applications in case-based reasoning (CBR), was held from Monday September 29 to Wednesday October 1, 2014, in Cork, Ireland. ICCBR is the annual meeting of the CBR community and the leading conference on this topic. Started in 1993 as the European Conference on CBR and 1995 as ICCBR, the two conferences alternated biennially until their merger in 2010.

The main conference track featured 19 research paper presentations, 16 posters, and two invited speakers. The papers and posters reflected the state of the art of case-based reasoning, dealing both with open problems at the core of case-based reasoning (especially in similarity assessment, case adaptation, and case-based maintenance), as well as trending applications of CBR. Among the applications this year were the coordination of autonomous vehicles in disaster relief operations; the capture of oil drilling problem experiences; sentiment analysis in Amazon product reviews; and the prediction of teen driving behavior.

The first invited speaker, Tony Veale from University College Dublin, Ireland, spoke about the paradoxical role of reuse in creativity. The second invited speaker, Frode Sormo from Verdande Technology, presented his experiences in applying CBR across different application areas.

In addition to the main conference, this year ICCBR featured its Sixth Doctoral Consortium, a workshop program consisting of three...
