Knowledge-Guided Machine learning workshop

Knowledge-Guided Machine learning workshop

DBDMG Organizers: Simone Monaco, Daniele Apiletti

On September 22, 2023, we are organizing the first European Knowledge-Guided Machine Learning workshop, to be held in Turin, Italy in ECML-PKDD 2023. You can find all the details of workshop on

Call for papers

Authors are invited to submit articles combining aspects of domain knowledge representation and ML, including the use of knowledge-aware methods for solving ML challenges (e.g. knowledge-guided or explainable learning), the use of ML methods for solving-knowledge representation challenges (e.g. efficient inference, knowledge base completion), the integration of learning and reasoning at the modeling or solving side, and the application of combined knowledge-driven ML approaches to solve real-world problems and accelerate scientific discovery.

We welcome papers on a wide range of topics, including but not limited to:

  • Novel techniques for incorporating prior knowledge into machine learning models
  • Learning with structured knowledge
  • Solving differential equations with machine learning in physics
  • Transfer learning, multi-task learning, and domain adaptation with knowledge
  • Interpretable and explainable machine learning with knowledge
  • Human-in-the-loop and interactive machine learning with knowledge guidance
  • Knowledge distillation and model compression
  • Discovery of Scientific Laws from Data with machine learning techniques
  • Learning symbolic knowledge, such as ontologies and knowledge graphs, action theories, common-sense knowledge, spatial and temporal theories, preference models and causal models
  • Logic-based, logical and relational learning algorithms
  • Knowledge-driven natural language understanding
  • Knowledge-driven decision making
  • Machine-learning driven reasoning algorithms
  • Neural-symbolic learning
  • Symbolic reinforcement learning
  • Expressive power of learning representations
  • Architectures that combine data-driven techniques and formal reasoning
  • Applications of knowledge guided machine learning in real-world scenarios
