We  are  pleased  to  announce  the  24th  International  Conference  on  Logic

The  ICLP'08 program includes 37 regular presentations, 26 short presentations,

Moreover  the program features the invited talk by Vitor Santos Costa (The Life
of a Logic Programming System) and a second invited talk TBA.

The  conference  celebrates  the 20th anniversary of the stable-model semantics
with  a  special  session at ICLP 2008 dedicated to answer-set programming. The
session  will  feature  invited  talks  by Michael Gelfond, Vladimir Lifschitz,
