Our motivation for organizing the 1998 AAAI Workshop on Case-Based Reasoning Integrations was to promote the systematic study of multimodal reasoning architectures (i.e., for intelligent systems) that have a case-based reasoning (CBR) component. This topic is of interest to researchers and practitioners pursuing novel methods for embedding CBR in a multimodal reasoning task (e.g., three roles are as master, slave, or collaborator). New integration methodologies are emerging as researchers harness the synergistic effects of these novel reasoning combinations as well as the various control strategies for interleaving the processes. Our goal was to elicit and elucidate a concise characterization and categorization of CBR integrations, and then publish our analysis in a joint publication.
