[CFP]The First International Knowledge Graph Reasoning Challenge (IKGRC 2023)

The First International Knowledge Graph Reasoning Challenge (IKGRC 2023)
   co-located with 17th IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing
<<< Submission deadline: Dec.17th, 2022.(Extended) >>>

Recent advances in machine learning have led to the application of
intelligence (AI) technology to a variety of social problems. Accordingly,
being able to explain the reason for an AI decision is becoming
important to ensure the secure and safe use of AI techniques.

On this background, the Knowledge Graph Reasoning Challenge has been
organized from 2018 in Japan. It aims to promote techniques for explainable
AI using
knowledge graphs.
In the challenge, the task is to estimate the culprits with a reasonable
explanation using a dataset of knowledge graphs representing eight Sherlock
Holmes mystery stories. The challenge has been held four times in Japan,
and 24 approaches have been proposed and fruitfully discussed, including
approaches to solving the constraint satisfaction problem, logical
inference, and
machine learning techniques including knowledge graph embedding.

In the workshop, we would like to organize the First International
Knowledge Graph Reasoning Challenge (IKGRC 2023) to discuss a wider variety
knowledge graph reasoning technologies for explainable AI.

The knowledge graph dataset is available as open data at
We are soliciting entries for the dataset in the following three divisions.

1. Main track: Development of a system that leads to one or more culprits
in one or more of the target stories.
2. Tool track: Development of tools to solve partial tasks required in
the process of finding the culprit, e.g., suspect estimation, alibi
verification, motive explanation, etc.
3. Idea track: Ideas for how to realize 1 and 2 (without implementation)

Please submit a short paper (2 pages, IEEE format) with an outline of
each of the submitted categories by [December 17, 2022]. Systems and tools
be under development. After peer review, accepted papers will be published
in the
Proceedings of the ICSC.
If your paper is accepted, you will be required to send us materials
(details of the materials will be provided separately) explaining your
tools, and ideas at least two weeks before the IKGRC 2023 (either February
2023) .
On the day of the challenge, you will be asked to present your system,
tool, or idea with a demonstration (online participation is possible).
will be awarded to the best entries.
