Call for Papers

INAP 2009

18th International Conference on
Applications of Declarative Programming
and Knowledge Management

November 5-7, 2009
Evora, Portugal

Organized by the Portuguese AI Society (APPIA), the INAP Committee
and the Society of Logic Programming (GLP e.V.)

== Overview ==

Declarative Programming is a family of advanced paradigms for the
modeling and solving of complex problems. These specification and
implementation methods have attracted more and more attention over
the past years, e.g. in the domains of databases and natural
language processing, for modeling and the processing of
combinatorial problems, and for establishing systems for the web.

== INAP 2009 ==

INAP is a communicative and dense forum for intensive discussion of
applications of important technologies related to Prolog, Logic and
Constraint Programming as well as closely related advanced software.
It comprehensively covers the impact of programmable logic solvers
in the Internet Society, its underlying technologies, and leading
edge applications in industry, commerce, government, and societal

INAP 2009 continues a tradition of successful workshops cast around
the applications of declarative programming, which were held in
Kobe (1997), Tokyo (1995, 1996, 1998 - 2001), Potsdam (2004),
Fukuoka (2005) and Wuerzburg (2007).

We invite the submission of high quality papers on the described
topics, especially, but not exclusively, on different aspects of
Declarative Programming, Constraint Processing and Knowledge
Management as well as their use for Distributed Systems and the Web:

- Knowledge Management,
e.g. Data Mining, Decision Support, Deductive Databases
- Distributed Systems and the Web,
e.g. Agents and Concurrent Engineering, Semantic Web
- Constraints,
e.g. Constraint Systems, Extensions of Constraint (Logic) Programming
- Theoretical Foundations,
e.g. Deductive Databases, Nonmonotonic Reasoning
- Systems and Tools for Academic and Industrial Use
- Knowledge-based Web Services - Logic Solvers and Applications

== Workshop Format ==

The technical program of the workshop will include invited
presentations (to be announced), regular technical sessions with
presentations of the accepted papers, system demonstrations and a
panel discussion.

== Conference Venue ==

The conference will be held at the University of Evora, Portugal
in November 5-7, 2009.

Evora is a nice and quiet historical city located in the south of
Portugal that can be reached from Lisbon by train or coach in under
2 hours. It is a small city of 60.000 inhabitants, 120 km inland
from Lisbon and classified by Unesco as World Heritage. The
University of Evora was established in the 16th Century and is the
2nd oldest Portuguese University.

The social program is promising since the region is very rich in
historical sites (Stone Age, Roman, Medieval and Renaissance
remains) and also offers a very special gastronomy. See for more information.

== Important Dates ==

Paper Submission Deadline: July 13, 2009 (EXTENDED)
Notifications to Authors: August 17, 2009
Camera-ready Version Deadline: September 14, 2009
INAP 2009 Workshop: November 5-7, 2009

== Submission Guidelines ==

Participants should submit a paper (maximum 15 pages, PDF format),
describing their work in topics relevant to the workshop. Accepted
papers will be presented during the workshop. At least one author
of an accepted contribution is expected to register for the
workshop, and present the paper. All submissions should include the
author's name(s), affiliation, complete mailing address, and email

Authors are requested to prepare their submissions, following the
LNCS/LNAI Springer format. Please see:
for further details.

The submission should be submitted through the electronic submission

The deadline for receipt of submissions is June 29, 2009. Papers
received after this date will not be reviewed. Eligible papers will
be peer-reviewed by at least three members of the Program Committee.
Authors will be notified via email of the results by August 17,
2009. Authors of accepted papers are expected to improve their
paper based on reviewers' comments and to send a camera ready
version of their manuscripts by September 14, 2009.

Accepted papers will be included in the workshop proceedings, which
will be distributed to the participants.

As in previous editions, we plan to publish selected papers in a
proceedings volume in the Springer Lecture Notes in Artificial
Intelligence (LNAI) series.
