Since the first conference held in Marseille in 1982, ICLP has been

the premier international conference for presenting research in logic

programming. This year conference will offer invited talks and

tutorials, as well as technical presentations on the broad spectrum of

most recent research topics in the field. The conference will also

host Doctoral Consortium, several workshops, and a Prolog programming






   * Answer Set Programming and Other Computing Paradigms (ASPOCP 2012),

     September 4

   * 9th International Workshop on Constraint Handling Rules (CHR 2012),

     September 4

   * 12th International Colloquium on Implementation of Constraint and

     LOgic Programming Systems (CICLOPS 2012), September 4

   * WG17, September 4-5

   * 22nd Workshop on Logic-based methods in Programming Environments

     (WLPE 2012), September 8

   * Constraint Based Methods for Bioinformatics (WCB'12), September 8

   * Coinductive Logic Programming (Co-LP), September 8


Workshops 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 receives

partial financial support to attend the event and the main

conference. The best paper and presentation from the DC is given

the opportunity to present in a special session of the main ICLP






   * Ferenc Darvas (http://www.thalesnano.com/board_of_directors)

   * Jan Wielemaker (http://www.cs.vu.nl/~janw/)

     "25 years of SWI Prolog"


   * Mike Elston (http://www.securitease.com/) on

The Association for Logic Programming has funds to assist financially

disadvantaged participants and, specially, students in order to be

able to attend the conference. For information, please contact the

organizers of the Doctoral Consortium and the General Chair.

The Conference will be located in Tulip Inn Budapest Millennium. Budapest

is in the center of Hungary, in the heart of Central Europe. Hungary is

member of the European Union and belongs to the Schengen area.


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, directly or indirectly; e.g. a

Wien-Budapest trip is less than 3 hours.





The conference is sponsored by the Association for Logic Programming (ALP),

the Artificial Intelligence Section of the John von Neumann Computer

Society and by AIT-Budapest (Aquincum Institute of Technology).
