CFP: International Conference on Logic Programming (ICLP 2010)
CALL FOR PAPERS 26th International Conference on Logic Programming (ICLP 2010) Edinburgh, Scotland, U.K., July 16-19, 2010 ICLP 2009 will be held as part of the Fifth Federated Logic Conference (FLoC 2010) Submission deadline: January 26, 2010 http://www.floc-conference.org/ICLP-home.html ---------------------------------------------------------------------- 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 (papers and posters) 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, Parallelism. 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 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 plenary invited talks in association with other FLoC conferences, as well as ICLP invited talks, advanced tutorials, the doctoral consortium, and several workshops. SUBMISSION DETAILS The four broad categories for submissions are: (1) technical papers for describing technically sound, innovative ideas that can advance the state of the art of logic programming; (2) application papers, where the emphasis will be on their impact on the application domain; (3) system and tool papers, where the emphasis will be on the novelty, practicality, usability and general availability of the systems and tools described; and (4) short papers/posters, for ongoing work not yet ready for full 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 All papers must describe original, previously unpublished research, and must not simultaneously be submitted for publication elsewhere.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 papers, application papers, and system and tool papers must not exceed 15 pages. The limit for short papers / posters is 5 pages. Submissions must be made in TPLP format (ftp://ftp.cup.cam.ac.uk/pub/texarchive/journals/latex/tlp-cls/) via the Easychair submission system, available at http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iclp2010. IMPORTANT DATES Paper registration deadline: January 26, 2010 Submission deadline: February 2, 2010 Notification to authors: March 20, 2010 Camera-ready copy due: April 21, 2010 Conference: July 16-19, 2010 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." 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 a password for on-line access to this web page during the conference and indefinitely from then on ("lifetime access"), which can be used to read papers on line, download them, or print them for personal use. Attendants will also receive all the papers in a USB memory stick at the conference. For short papers / posters the journal issue(s) will include a listing of the titles and authors of these papers, as well as a URL pointing to their printable copy. Short papers / posters will also get space in the program for presentation.

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. WORKSHOPS The ICLP 2009 program will include several workshops, held also as part of FLoC. 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. DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM The 6th 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. CONFERENCE VENUE / CO-LOCATION In 2010 (as in the previous two FLoC editions) ICLP will be held as part of the Fifth Federated Logic Conference, FLoC 2010 in Edinburgh, Scotland, U.K., July 16-19, 2010. FLoC is held every four years bringing together several international conferences related to mathematical logic and computer science. Other participating conferences are: - Computer-Aided Verification (CAV), - Int'l Joint Conference on Automated Reasoning (IJCAR), - Interactive Theorem Proving (ITP), - Logic in Computer Science (LICS), - Rewriting Techniques and Applications (RTA), and - Theory and Applications of Satisfiability Testing (SAT). Plenary events involving multiple conferences are planned.
