on the International Workshop on Inductive Modelling IWIM-2018

September, 11-14 2018, Lviv, Ukraine

The International Workshop on Inductive Modeling IWIM-2018 (see was held on September 11-14, 2018, in Lviv Polytechnic National University in conjunction with the IEEE International Conference "Computer Science and Information Technologies" CSIT-2018(see ) .

The event organizers were:

  • National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine;

  • IEEE Ukraine Section;

  • International Research and Training Center for Information Technologies and Systems of the NAS and MES of Ukraine;

  • Lviv Polytechnic National University;

  • Czech Technical University in Prague, Czech Republic.

    The Chairman of the IWIM-2018 was Professor Volodymyr Stepashko.

    The Workshop was successive in the chain of International Conferences and Workshops being held since 2002 in Ukraine (Lviv-2002; Kyiv-2005, 2008, 2011-2016; Yevpatoria-2010) and abroad (Prague-2007; Krynica-2009, Poland). They are traditionally focused on the theory, new algorithms, and applications of automated data mining and knowledge discovery technologies based mainly on the GMDH methodology as a typical inductive approach to modeling from data originated by Academician Oleksiy Ivakhnenko.

    The motivation of this 9th Workshop was to:

  • analyze the state-of-the-art of methods that inductively generate models from data;
  • present novel applications of inductive modelling in various areas;
  • formulate promising ways of the research development.

    The Workshop Program consisted of 15 papers selected by international reviewers among 27 received contributions (3 reviewers per paper): 10 papers from Ukraine, 1 from Ireland,Spain, England, Germany and Russia. All these 15 papers were published in the "Proceedings of the XII IEEE International Conference CSIT-2017 and International Workshop on Inductive Modeling, September 11-14, 2018, Lviv, Ukraine, Publisher "Vezha&Co", 2018, 491 p". .

    In total, 18 Ukrainian and 9 foreign scientists was authors of the Workshop papers, 3 of them were from Russia, 2 from Spain, 1 from Germany and England. All 15 papers were presented orally at the Workshop, 2 of them by Skype connection.

    All the Workshop papers are included in the IEEE Xplore digital library providing access to IEEE scientific journals and conference proceedings; and they are submitted to indexing by SCOPUS, Web of Science, etc., which will promote awareness of the wider world scientific community with the presented results.

    This scientific forum with wide international participation under the IEEE support testifies high development level of the theory, methods and tools of inductive modeling as an advanced approach of computational intelligence.

    The decision was made about holding the next International Workshop on Inductive Modelling IWIM-2019 again in September 2019 in Lviv, Ukraine, in conjunction with the IEEE International Conference "Computer Science and Information Technologies" CSIT-2019.
