========================================================================= CALL FOR PARTICIPATION 28th International Conference on Logic Programming (ICLP 2012) Theory and Practice of Logic Programming Budapest, Hungary, September 4-8, 2012 http://www.cs.bme.hu/iclp2012/ ========================================================================= REGISTRATION Registration Site is open at: http://www.cs.bme.hu/iclp2012/Registration.html Regular registration fees are applicable until August 17, 2012. ACCOMMODATION Information on hotels is available on the homepage: http://www.cs.bme.hu/iclp2012/HotelInfo.html CONFERENCE SCOPE 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 contest. WORKSHOPS * 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. DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM 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 conference.

CONFERENCE VENUE 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. SPONSORS The conference is sponsored by the Association for Logic Programming (ALP),the Artificial Intelligence Section of the John von Neumann Computer Society, by AIT-Budapest (Aquincum Institute of Technology), by Alerant Inc, and by Google, through its Conference Grant for female computer scientists, see http://www.cs.bme.hu/iclp2012/DiversityGrant.html.
