CFP: International Conference on Logic Programming (ICLP 2009

Call for Papers
     25th International Conference on Logic Programming (ICLP 2009)
              Pasadena, California, USA, July 14--17, 2009
             ICLP 2009 will be co-located with IJCAI 2009

Conference Scope
   Since the first conference held in Marseilles in 1982, ICLP has
been the premier international conference for presenting research in
logic programming. 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.
- Language Issues: Concurrency, Objects, Coordination, Mobility, Higher
   Order, Types, Modes, Programming Techniques.
- Related Paradigms: Abductive Logic Programming, Inductive Logic
  Programming, Constraint Logic Programming, Answer-Set Programming.
- Applications: Databases, Data Integration and Federation, Software
  Engineering, Natural Language Processing, Web and Semantic Web,
  Agents, Artificial Intelligence, Bioinformatics.

 In addition to the presentations of accepted papers, the technical
program will include invited talks, tutorials, a Doctoral Consortium,
and workshops.

Submission Details
   The three broad categories for submissions are: (1) technical
papers, where, for ICLP 2009, specific attention will be given to work
describing innovative language features leading to better software
development, verification, and implementation; (2) application papers,
where the emphasis will be on their impact on the application domain
as opposed to the advancement of the the state-of-the-art of logic
programming; and (3) short papers/posters, ideal for presenting and
discussing current work not yet ready for publication and research
project overviews.

All papers must describe original, previously unpublished research,
and must not simultaneously be submitted for publication elsewhere.
They must be written in English. Technical and application papers must
not exceed 15 pages. The limit for short papers is 5 pages.

Submissions must be in the Springer LNCS format
( via the Easychair submission
system, available at

All accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings,
expected to be published by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS series.

Important Dates

Paper registration:          February 27, 2009
Submission deadline:         March 3, 2009
Notification of authors:     April 7, 2009

   The ICLP 2009 program will include several workshops. They are
perhaps the best places for the presentation of preliminary work,
novel ideas, and new open problems to a wide and interested audience.
Workshops also provide a venue for presenting specialized topics and
opportunities for intensive discussions and project collaboration in
any areas related to logic programming, including cross-disciplinary
areas. Workshop proposals by Feb. 3rd, 2009.

Doctoral Consortium
   The 5th 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 special session of the main ICLP conference.

Conference Venue
   ICLP 2009 will be held in conjunction with IJCAI 2009 at the
Pasadena Convention Center; for more information, see
