Call For Papers


The 37th International Conference on Logic Programming (ICLP 2021)

Fully virtual event organized by the Department of Computer Science of
the University of Porto.



Since the first conference held in Marseille in 1982, ICLP has been
the premier international event for presenting research in logic
programming. Contributions are sought in all areas of logic
programming, including but not restricted to:

** Foundations: Semantics, Formalisms, Nonmonotonic reasoning,
Knowledge representation.

** Languages issues: Concurrency, Objects, Coordination, Mobility,
Higher order, Types, Modes, Assertions, Modules, Meta-programming,
Logic-based domain-specific languages, Programming techniques.

** Programming support: Program analysis, Transformation, Validation,
Verification, Debugging, Profiling, Testing, Execution visualization.

** Implementation: Compilation, Virtual machines, Memory management,
Parallel/distributed execution, Constraint handling rules, Tabling,
Foreign interfaces, User interfaces.

** Related Paradigms and Synergies: Inductive and coinductive logic
programming, Constraint logic programming, Answer set programming,
Interaction with SAT, SMT and CSP solvers, Theorem proving,
Argumentation, Probabilistic programming, Machine learning.

** Applications: Databases, Big data, Data integration and federation,
Software engineering, Natural language processing, Web and semantic
web, Agents, Artificial intelligence, Computational life sciences,
Cybersecurity, Robotics, Education.

Tracks and Special Sessions

Besides the main track, ICLP 2021 will host additional tracks:

** Applications Track: this track invites submissions of papers on
emerging and deployed applications of LP, describing all aspects of
the development, deployment, and evaluation of logic programming
systems to solve real-world problems, including interesting case
studies and benchmarks, and discussing lessons learned.

** Recently Published Research Track: this track provides a forum to
discuss important results related to logic programming that
appeared recently (from January 2019 onwards) in selective journals
and conferences, but have not been previously presented at ICLP.

Each track will have its own dedicated chairs, PC, evaluation
criteria, and CFP with specific submission details.

ICLP 2021 will also host:

** MentorLP - Mentoring Workshop on Logic Programming: the purpose of
MentorLP is to support students and newcomers to pursue careers in
logic programming research. This workshop will hold technical
sessions on cutting-edge research in logic programming, and
mentoring sessions on how to prepare and succeed for a research
career. We will have leaders in logic programming research from
academia and industry to give talks on their research areas. We
will also have live discussions among participants on how to
overcome challenges and make contributions to the research
community. MentorLP is dedicated to fostering and supporting
diversity, equity, and inclusion. We especially encourage members
of underrepresented groups to attend.

** Fall School on Logic and Constraint Programming: the school is
suited for those who wish to learn advanced topics in logic
programming and constraint programming. It will consist of a serie
of half-day tutorials.

** Doctoral Consortium: the Doctoral Consortium (DC) on Logic
Programming provides students with the opportunity to present and
discuss their research directions, and to obtain feedback from both
peers and experts in the field. The best paper from the DC will be
given the opportunity to make a presentation in a session of the
main ICLP conference.

** Tutorials and Co-located Workshops.

Submission Details

Expected submissions to the main conference (Tracks have specific

** Regular papers (14 pages in TPLP format, including references) must
describe original, previously unpublished research, and must not
simultaneously be submitted for publication elsewhere. These
restrictions do not apply to previously accepted workshop papers
with a limited audience and/or without archival proceedings. The
accepted regular papers will be published in TPLP, along with the
selected ICLP-TPLP papers. The program committee may recommend some
regular papers to be published as technical communications (TCs),
along with the selected ICLP-TC papers. The authors of the TCs can
also elect to convert their submissions into extended abstracts (2
or 3 pages) for inclusion in the proceedings. This should allow
authors to submit a long version elsewhere.

** Short papers (7 pages in EPTCS format (,
including references) can describe published research. The accepted
short papers that describe original and previously unpublished work
will be published as TCs, along with the selected ICLP-TC
papers. The accepted short papers that describe published research
will be made available at the conference webpage, with the
permission of the authors.

All accepted regular papers and technical communications will be
presented during the conference. Authors of accepted papers will, by
default, be automatically included in the list of ALP members, who
will receive quarterly updates from the Logic Programming Newsletter
at no cost. All submissions must be written in English.

Submissions will be done via EasyChair. The submission Web page for
