## Inductive Logic Programming: 19th International Conference, ILP 2009, Leuven, Belgium, July 2-4, 2010, Revised Papers (Google eBook)The ILP conference series has been the premier forum for work on logic-based approaches to machine learning for almost two decades. The 19th International Conference on Inductive Logic Programming, which was organized in Leuven, July2-4,2009,continuedthistraditionbutalsoreachedouttoothercommunities as it was colocated with SRL-2009 – the International Workshop on Statistical RelationalLearning,andMLG-2009–the7thInternationalWorkshoponMining andLearningwithGraphs. While thesethreeseriesofeventseachhavetheirown focus,emphasis andtradition,they essentiallysharethe problemthatis studied: learning about structured data in the form of graphs, relational descriptions or logic. The colocation of the events was intended to increase the interaction between the three communities. There was a single program with joint invited and tutorial speakers, a panel, regular talks and poster sessions. The invited speakers and tutorial speakers were James Cussens, Jason Eisner, Jure Leskovec, Raymond Mooney, Scott Sanner, and Philip Yu. The panel featured Karsten Borgwardt, Luc De Raedt, Pedro Domingos, Paolo Frasconi, Thomas Gart ̈ ner, Kristian Kersting, Stephen Muggleton, and C. David Page. Video-recordings of these talks can be found atwww. videolectures. net. The overall program featured 30 talks presented in two parallel tracks and 53 posters. The talks and posters were selected on the basis of an extended abstract. These abstracts can be found at http:// dtai. cs. kuleuven. be/ilp-mlg-srl/.
