It is known that case-based reasoning (CBR) systems are more scalable than
expert systems by a factor of about ten. Collaborative case-based reasoning
(CCBR) systems seek to put this scalability to use in the domain of
agent-based knowledge engineering and beyond. Effective collaboration
(e.g., swarm robotics) requires that distinct entities plan for cooperation
and share their dynamic realizations of those plans. Often, one agent must
do something else while waiting for another agent to complete a mutually
agreed upon task. It is increasingly difficult, with scale, to create
effectively shared rule bases for carrying out complex plans. Rather, case
bases can build on the acquired experience in devising plans for replay,
generalization, and adaptation. Thus, in a very real sense, case bases can
be designed to assist in the automatic programming of distributed software.
Such capabilities are needed for building complex cyber-secure systems as
well as intelligent systems and systems of systems, in general.

In this special session, we invite original research contributions that
advance the state of the art as well as position papers that pose a new
direction or present a controversial point of view on these subjects and
related fields. Theoretical and application papers are invited, which
address these and related issues. A major goal is to enable collaborative
computing through automation and to discover cost-effective techniques for
the realization of the same.

*The GCCR Special Session topics include (but are not limited to) the

   - Case-based reasoning in automatic programming
   - Generalization in case-based reasoning
   - Case-based reasoning in collaborative design
   - Case-based reasoning in collaborative games
   - Collaborative case-based reasoning for knowledge discovery
   - Collaborative case-based reasoning for architecture planning
   - Multi-agent collaborative case-based reasoning
   - Case-based reasoning and domain transference
   - Case-based reasoning vs collaborative filtering
   - Machine learning and reasoning techniques
   - Logic and reasoning
   - Automated reasoning
   - Mechanisms for interaction
   - Action languages and policy representation & reasoning
   - Case-based reasoning and Big Data
   - Case-based reasoning in social networking
   - Case-based reasoning for security
   - Answer set programming and policy representation & reasoning
   - Graph Based Knowledge Representation and Reasoning
   - Visualization generation


You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above
and other topics related to *Generalization in Collaborative Case-Based
Reasoning*. Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously
submitted elsewhere. Submissions could be for full papers, short papers,
poster papers, or posters (please specify).  For Regular papers, please
submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript, not to exceed 8 double-column
formatted pages per template, and include up to 6 keywords and an abstract
of no more than 400 words. Additional pages will be charged additional fee.
Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation
addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and all authors email addresses.
Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author(s) although all authors
are equally responsible for the manuscript. Short papers (up to 4 pages),
poster papers and posters (please refer to for posters
submission details) will also be considered. Please specify the type of
submission you have. Please include page numbers on all preliminary
submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments.

Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript to the workshop EasyChair paper
submission site at
Acknowledgement will be sent within 48 hours of submission. If the
submission is for a *poster paper* or *short paper*, indicate that as well
on the manuscript and in the submission form's *Notes* field.

Only PDF files will be accepted, uploaded to the submission link above.
Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected
based on their originality, relevance, significance, technical clarity and
presentation, and references. Submission implies the willingness of at
least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted. At
least one of the authors of each accepted paper will have to register and
attend the CTS 2016 conference to present the paper at the workshop.


Accepted papers will be published in the Conference proceedings.
Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on
the CTS 2016 Conference web site. It is our intent to have the proceedings
formally published in hard and soft copies and be available at the time of
the conference. The proceedings is projected to be included in the IEEE
Digital Library and indexed in all major indexing services accordingly.

If you have any questions about paper submission or the workshop, please
contact the organizers.
