OpenConf Conference 2020

International Workshop on Inductive Modelling IWIM-2019 will be held in Lviv at Lviv Polytechnic National University in conjunction with the host Conference "Computer Science and Information Technologies" CSIT-2019 (see, both are supported by IEEE.

The IWIM-2019 is successive in the chain of International events held since 2002 in Ukraine (Lviv-2002; Kyiv-2005, 2008, 2011-2016; Yevpatoria-2010; Lviv-2017, 2018) 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 GMDH methodology as a typical inductive approach to modeling from data originated by Prof. O. Ivakhnenko.

The motivation of this 9th Workshop is to analyze the state-of-the-art of modelling methods that inductively generate models from data, to discuss concepts of an automated knowledge discovery workflow, to share new ideas on model validation and visualization, to present novel applications in various areas.

Organizers invite scientists, engineers, specialists, and experts to take part in the Workshop.

TOPICS OF INTEREST include but are not limited to:

Section 1. Theoretical fundamentals of inductive modeling

Section 2. New approaches in inductive modelling

Section 3. Real-world applications of inductive modelling


Original papers not being submitted to journals or other conferences will be considered. All submitted papers will be peer reviewed by 3 reviewers according to its originality, significance, correctness, presentation and relevance. We encourage authors to present position papers on practical studies and experiments, critique of existing works, emerging issues, and novel ideas under development.

Papers must be submitted via the IWIM’2019 Submission Page ( Manuscripts will be limited to 4-6 pages including all figures, tables, and references. The format of submitted papers must follow the IEEE proceedings guidelines (download).

All accepted papers will be published in the IEEE Workshop proceedings as separate volume. Papers are accepted with the condition that at least one author will register for the conference to present the paper. Papers without any registered co-author will not be published. The papers will be included in the IEEE Xplore digital library, and submitted to A&I databases (WoS, Scopus, etc.).

Extended versions (min 10 pages) of the best papers recommended by reviewers will be printed in a volume of "Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing" (AISC) by Springer prepared together with the main Conference. Authors of all accepted papers must sign a Springer copyright release form.

Any Workshop participant may present his/her paper likewise at the CSIT-2019 Conference.
