                              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.

               PAPER PUBLICATION



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 www.logicprogramming.org.  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




                    FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE



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
