CF Workshop Proposals: ICLP 2011 (International Conference on Logic Programming)


                             ICLP 2011
        27th International Conference on Logic Programming
                     Lexington, Kentucky, USA
                          July 6-10, 2011
             URL: http://www.cs.uky.edu/iclp2011/

ICLP 2011, the 27th International Conference on Logic Programming,
will be held in Lexington, Kentucky, USA, from July 6 to 10, 2011.

Workshops collocated with an international conference are one of the
best venues for the presentation and discussion of preliminary work,
novel ideas, and new open problems to a wide and interested audience.
Collocated workshops also provide an opportunity for presenting
specialized topics and opportunities for intensive discussions and
project collaboration. The topics of the workshops collocated with
ICLP 2011 can cover any areas related to logic programming, (e.g.,
theory, implementation, environments, language issues, alternative
paradigms, applications), including cross-disciplinary areas. However,
any workshop proposal will be considered.

The format of the workshop will be decided by the workshop organizers,
but ample time should be allowed for general discussion. Workshops can
vary in length, but the optimal duration will be half a day or a full day.

Workshop Proposal:

Those interested in organizing a workshop at ICLP 2011 are invited
to submit a workshop proposal. Proposals should be in English and
about two pages in length. They should contain:

 * The title of the workshop

 * A brief technical description of the topics covered by the

 * A discussion of the timeline and relevance of the workshop

 * A list of some related workshops held in the recent years

 * The (preliminary) required number of half-days allotted to the
   workshop and an estimate of the number of expected attendees

 * The names, affiliation, and contact details (email, web page,
   phone, fax) of the workshop organizer(s) together with a
   designated contact person

 * The previous experience of the workshop organizing committee in
   workshop/conference organization

Proposals are expected in ASCII or PDF format. All proposals should be
submitted to the Workshop Chair (Joohyung Lee) by email by December
15, 2010.

Reviewing Process:

Each submitted proposal will be reviewed by the Workshop Chair and the
Conference Program Chairs. Proposals that appear well-organized and
that fit the goals and the scope of ICLP will be selected. The Chairs
will notify the responsible organizers of their decision via email by
January 12th, 2011.

The final length of each workshop will be planned according to the
number of submissions each workshop receives. For each accepted
workshop, the ICLP local organizers will prepare a meeting place and
arrange the distribution of the workshop proceedings, which must be
prepared by the workshop organizers. The workshop registration fees
will be handled together with the conference fees.

Workshop Organizers' Tasks:

 * Producing a "Call for Papers" for the workshop and posting it on
   the Internet and other means. A web page URL which will linked
   into the ICLP 2011 home page should be provided by February 2,

 * Providing a brief description of the workshop for the conference

 * Reviewing/accepting submitted papers

 * Scheduling workshop activities in collaboration with the local
   organizers and the Workshop Chair

 * Sending workshop program and workshop proceedings in pdf format to
   the Workshop Chair for distribution at the conference

 * The use of the Computing Research Repository (CoRR) for the
   workshop proceedings is strongly recommended.  See
   http://www.logicprogramming.org/ for guidelines. We encourage
   reading these instructions in advance so that you can ask paper
   authors to prepare accordingly the final versions of their papers.


All workshops will take place in Lexington at the site of the main
conference. See the ICLP 2011 web site for location details.
