International Workshop of Inductive Modeling 2018

September 11-14, 2018, Lviv, Ukraine

International Workshop on Inductive Modelling IWIM-2018 will be held in Lviv at Lviv Polytechnic National University in conjunction with the host Conference "Computer Science and Information Technologies" CSIT-2018  (see ),both are supported by IEEE.

The IWIM-2018 is successive in the chain of International events held since 2002 in Ukraine (Lviv-2002; Kyiv-2005, 2008, 2011-2016; Yevpatoria-2010; Lviv-2017) 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.


April 25     –  deadline for paper submission

May 15      – notification of acceptance, reviewers comments, proposition of paper extension

May 25      – camera-ready due for the Workshop papers, reviewers comments evaluation

June 15     – extended papers submission for the book

Papers must be submitted via the IWIM’2018 Submission Page (see Make Submissionoption below). We encourage early registration of your planned paper. Contributions will be limited to 4-5 pages including all figures, tables, and references. The format of submitted papers must follow the IEEE proceedings guidelines (see templateon the Submission Page). All accepted papers will be published in the IEEE Proceedings.

The papers will be included in the IEEE Xplore digital library and submitted to A&I databases WoS and Scopus. Extended versions of the best papers recommended by reviewers (min 10 pages) will be printed in a volume of "Advancesin Intelligent Systems and Computing" (AISC) by Springer Verlag prepared together with the main Conference.

Best 10 papers of the recent IWIM’2017were published as extended articles in the Volume 689 of AISC book series, see

Any Workshop participant may present his/her paper likewise at the CSIT-2017 Conference.

IWIM-2017 Program and Abstracts



The Workshop as well as the main Conference CSIT 2018 will be held in Lviv which is the largest city in Western Ukraine and the seventh largest city in the country overall. The events will take place at Lviv Polytechnic National University in early autumn when Lviv will be at its best: the city is famous for its welcoming and hospitality, its beautiful parks, diverse cuisine, fascinating history and charismatic architecture. Several sessions will be held in a picturesque place near Lviv.

The historical heart of Lviv city is famous for its old buildings. The city centre is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Lviv is one of the most important cultural centres of Ukraine, famous for art, literature, music and theatre. It host more than 100 festivals annually, has 60 museums and 10 theatres. With regard to its urban fabric and architecture, Lviv is an outstanding example of the fusion of the architectural and artistic traditions of Central and Eastern Europe with those of Italy and Germany.
