Call For Papers



28th International Conference on Logic Programming (ICLP 2012)

Budapest, Hungary, September 4-8, 2012


The International Conference on Logic Programming is the premier venue for
presenting research in logic programming. ICLP 2012 will take place in
Budapest, honouring the important contribution that the Hungarian logic
programming community has given to this field. The ICLP technical program
will include presentations of accepted papers, invited talks, advanced
tutorials and panels, a special session on most influential papers, the
doctoral consortium, the programming contest, and several workshops.

Contributions are sought in all areas of logic programming, including but not
restricted to:

- Theory: Semantic Foundations, Formalisms, Non-Monotonic Reasoning,
Knowledge Representation.
- Implementation: Compilation, Memory Management, Virtual Machines,
- Environments: Program Analysis, Transformation, Validation,
Verification, Debugging, Profiling, Testing.
- Language Issues: Concurrency, Objects, Coordination, Mobility, Higher
Order, Types, Modes, Assertions, Programming Techniques.
- Related Paradigms: Abductive/Inductive/Constraint Logic Programming,
Answer-Set Programming.
- Applications: Databases, Data Integration and Federation, Software
Engineering, Natural Language Processing, (Semantic) Web,
Agents, Artificial Intelligence, Bioinformatics, Declarative

There are four broad categories for submissions:

(1) technical papers describe technically sound, innovative
ideas that can advance the state of the art of logic programming;
(2) application papers present real-world applications of logic programming;
(3) system and tool papers focus on the novelty, practicality, usability
and general availability of the systems and tools described; and
(4) technical communications aim at describing recent developments,
new projects, and other materials that are not ready for publication
as standard papers.

All accepted (long) papers will be published in the journal Theory and
Practice of Logic Programming (TPLP), Cambridge U. Press (CUP), in one or
more special issues. In order to ensure the quality of the final version,
papers may be subject to more than one round of refereeing (within the
decision period) and/or ``shepherding.'' The program committee may also
recommend standard papers to be published as technical communications.

At the time of the conference CUP will make the web page for this(ese) TPLP
issue(s) available including volume and issue numbers, table of contents,
page numbers, and the papers themselves. All registered attendants at the
conference will get lifetime access to the web site for the online version of
the issue(s). Pointers to the arXiv/CoRR versions of these papers will be
guaranteed from the ALP website Attendants will
also receive all the papers in a memory stick at the conference.

The collection of technical communications will appear as a volume of the
LIPIcs (Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics) series, and
published online through the Dagstuhl Research Online Publication Server
(DROPS). All technical communications will also get space in the program for
presentation. The journal issue(s) will also include a listing of the
technical communications, with pointers to the LIPIcs/DROPS volume.


The conference is sponsored by the Association for Logic Programming (ALP)
and the Artificial Intelligence Section of the John von Neumann Computer


The Association for Logic Programming has funds to assist financially
disadvantaged participants and, specially, students in order to be able to
attend the conference.


The ICLP 2012 program will include several workshops, held before, after, and
in parallel with the main conference. They are perhaps the best places for
the presentation of preliminary work, undeveloped novel ideas, and new open
problems to a wide and interested audience with opportunities for intensive
discussions and project collaboration.


The 8th Doctoral Consortium (DC) on Logic Programming provides research
students with the opportunity to present and discuss their research
directions, and to obtain feedback from both peers and world-renown experts
in the field. Accepted participants will receive partial financial support to
attend the event and the main conference. The best paper and presentation
from the DC will be given the opportunity to present in a special session of
the main ICLP conference.


ICLP 2012 will also feature the 19th edition of the Prolog Programming


Budapest is located in the center of Hungary, in the heart of Central Europe.
Hungary is member of the European Union and belongs to the Schengen area.

Detailed tourist and travel information can be obtained from Hungary is well-served by
transport links from abroad. The main international airport is Budapest
Ferihegy Budapest is linked to 15 European
capitals by train (eg. Wien-Budapest trip is less than 3 hours), directly or
indirectly (see for details).

The conference is organized by the John von Neumann Computer Society, who handled the ICLP'93 conference and the 1980 Logic
Programming Workshop in Debrecen.
