This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 18th International Conference on Inductive Logic Programming, ILP 2008, held in Prague, Czech Republic, in September 2008.

The 20 revised full papers presented together with the abstracts of 5 invited lectures were carefully reviewed and selected during two rounds of reviewing and improvement from 46 initial submissions. All current topics in inductive logic programming are covered, ranging from theoretical and methodological issues to advanced applications. The papers present original results in the first-order logic representation framework, explore novel logic induction frameworks, and address also new areas such as statistical relational learning, graph mining, or the semantic Web.
